Do LPN's have to take the NCLEX--or just RN's? Or do LPN's just take their state board?
Yes, LPN's have to take a version of the NCLEX called NCLEX-PN, registered nurse candidates have to take NCLEX-RN.
'Sitting for boards'........taking the NCLEX.........same thing. The NCLEX for both RN and LPN is structured the same. To assess the knowledge of medical/nursing care and determn their ability to be nurses. It is closely the same test. There are different questions geared to each division. (RN/LPN).
Taking boards is a scary time. I took my boards and the screen turned blue about 1/2 way through it and it asked me to take a break and then I went back in and started the end of the test and it only let me answer maybe 15 questions and the screen went blue again and it said the test was over and talk about freaking out!!!! I just knew that I failed it. I just kept saying in my head, I didn't answer enough the test knew I failed and it just didn't want to waste anymore time!! LOL:rolleyes: But I did pass it and I was never so thankful in my life!! I have been thinking about going back and getting my RN and I just don't know if I can handle taking another test like that!!!! :chair:
