I haven't been an LPN, so I can't tell you much about that subject. If there is anyway to skip LPN and go ahead and get your RN I think you would be better off. Not many people hiring LPNs these days.

You'll find all the answers to your questions about becoming an LVN, so called in CA and TX, the other state's used the LPN designation, under the "World" section and then click the "Nurse Registration" tab, it's all there in a few threads, one with step-by-step guide.

Just know that the processing time for all international applicants is currently taking about 9-10 months to receive the ATT.

CA BVNPT does have the same concurrency rules as the CA BRN that's been denying thousands of PH applicants from getting the ATT to take the NCLEX-RN since Nov. 2011, it's not a new rule but rather the strict enforcement of the policy established since 1987. So get in your application quickly as the BVPNT can also start to enforce the regulation at any time, any day.
