Underestimated LPNs started this petition to National Council of State Boards of Nursing

The LPN position in this country is grossly underestimated.
Experienced LPNs are functioning at, or above, the same level as a new graduate ADN-RN. Experienced LPNs should be able to challenge the Board of Nursing to sit for the NCLEX-RN and if able to pass, should be granted an RN license.
With this country’s nursing shortage, the US is importing nurses when we have competent nurses already licensed that are more than capable of performing at an RN level.
