Hello everyone!

I have currently completed my second year in an RN program. While my grades are very good, and I have thoroghly enjoyed my clinical placements, due to external circumstances beyond my control I'm not going to be able to return for my third semester, and thus continue with the RN program. I very much wish to be a nurse, and it was recently suggested that there may be a way I can write the CPNRE and have my university confirm that I have performed/learned the appropriate nursing competencies.

I'm wondering if this is actually a possibility or wishful thinking? I'm having a difficult time finding any information on the topic.

Are you planning to upgrade later to RN or just stay with LPN?

I would advise to take a year off to settle your situation and then go back to finish your RN program.

Wishful thinking.

The first two years of the degree does not encompass the learning covered in two years of the PN diploma.

And you are never just an LPN.

Check with your board of nursing?
