Working as LPN while in RN school?

  1. Hi everyone! I will be starting nursing school in the fall and I was wondering..after a year of nursing classes, can I sit for the LPN certification exam and work as a LPN while in school? I heard I couldn't do that in Jersey (I live in NJ) but I can in NY? What's the 411?

    As far as I know you have to finish 3 semesters of a 4 semester ADN program and then you can sit for the exam.
