Hello everyone! I'm new here and I have a few questions. I'm going to attend a military school next mont. It is a 13-month course which requires candidates to take and pass the nclex-pn in the state where you take the last phase of the course. In my case, that would be Texas. As I understood, I will be acquire a Texas license if I pass the course. My first question is, can I challenge the other state boards and work in another state? I'm from California and I'm planning to come back here after the course, but I heard different things about being able to work here with military training. One of my friends who took finished the course said I should be able to challenge the CA board but others say I can't. Does anyone have any knowledge about this? Is there a state where I can work as a LVN/LPN after I finish this course other than Texas? I won't mind working in Texas but my fiancee and I want to stay in or close to CA as much as possible. Any advice/comment is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Regarding the state of CA, you can find the answers to your questions at http://www.bvnpt.ca.gov/pdf/method4.pdf. Essentially, you must show proof of one year of bedside experience after graduation from your military nursing program or you can endorse your LPN/LVN license into CA. Good luck with your schooling.
