    LPN to RN vs LPN to BSN

    I thought the RN-BSN bridge has the same NCLEX-RN exam, so why would you need to take it again after obtaining BSN?

    Advice for a struggling nursing student

    Good evening, I was trying to find the date that this was posted. I would suggest you staying in the program and apply yourself more. I would think that the mind frame for LPN is different for RN and you just need that extra push adjusting. You may have been out of school for a little while and just need time to adjust and apply yourself. You did the LPN program you can definitely do this one too! Back track and see what helped you then and do the same now. You got this!! Hope it got better for you.

    Advice? LPN to RN program

    That's strange I'm doing the professional route and will have to retake both fundamentals and pharmacology. I originally got accepted to both but with the traditional route they allowed to test out of the class. If you don't test out at least you get the chance to refresh your knowledge.

    Tips For LPNs Going For Their RN Degree

    Very well written! Thank you so much for the mental preparation. I am actually nervous all over again. I feel like a student to the upmost but I'll remember to utilize my skills and learn as much as possible from everyone willing to teach me this time around.

    I ended up calling to the BON again and spoke to a representative that says she can not give me legal advice but she showed my in the practice acts where it states that LPN can only participate in assessment and where it says RN do assessments. I sent that to the owner of the company, RN, house manager and told them I am not going to do the initial assessment because its against the law and my scope of practice. I was asked if I would come in and just not do the assessment wth?? I've been so stressed about this my body is shaking on and off, headaches and loss of appetite. I could loose my job for telling them no but I will not break the law for anyone nor practice outside of scope and potentially loose my license. I'm upset that I would even be asked such a thing. Its a very stressful situation.

    I really wish this were the case here. I emailed them and got the response that I told you. Not sure why my question couldn't just get answered. Evidently, I don't see it in their which is why I asked. I've called my previous instructor fr the program and waiting for her to call me back. The message before last looks like we are authorized to do assessment but it does not specify initial assessment

    The board of nursing basically said to look in scope of practice and figure it out. So nothing to incorporate into policy and procedures. I was hoping for that smh What do you mean by countersign. I work at a group home with a real basic documentation system called therapservices the company basically made what we are to document. I was asked to do a head-to-toe assessment but it'll be the first one ever done. I'm not sure if it makes it a initial assessment or not. So stressed I just want to know what my scope is and practice it

    Thank you so much for responding. How do I figure out what the laws are about this for my state? I would like to know as much as I possibly can.
