    As far as I can tell, the only difference between the two is the name. CA and TX uses LVNs and the rest of the country uses LPNs. Is this really the only difference? I know they take the same test, so is there any problem going from state to a state that uses the other term? Just wondering. Thanks.


    We were told in school that they were the same thing just different locations use different terms to describe….

    My sister was a nurse in Texas both LVN then RN. There isn’t any difference between LPN and LVN.
