Allow LPNs to challenge the Board of Nursing to obtain RN licensure

This petition had 46,419 supporters


The LPN position in this country is grossly underestimated. We are performing work at the same level as an RN in most facilities, including having to pick up the slack. Experienced LPN's 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 or at least be able to test out of the bridge program courses. With the national nursing shortage, the US is importing Nurses when we have competent nurses already licensed in the country that are more than capable of performing at an RN level. It should be possible to test out of the bridge program just like it is possible to test out of other college courses.
