    Due to personal resaons I’ve been out of nursing school for about 3 years now. I’ve been practicing and reading over my books, should I just repeat LPN school or go take a Kaplan refresher course and take the exam. I remember a lot of the material, and such but I’m interested in what some of you would do?


    You couldn’t pay me enough to retake LPN school … if you can, take the test and move on. There is nothing I learned in LPN school that applies to my current job except for the sympathy I have for students that come through the ER every once in a while. You will learn your career on the job, so if you can pass the LPN NCLEX and get into RN school without retaking the LPN classes … that is the way I would go.

    I agree, just take the test and learn the rest on the job.

    Are you planning on working as an LPN or going right on for your RN? If you want to work as an LPN, a refresher course for boards would be in order. If you are “just” going on for your RN, don’t waste your money. Once back in school, you will amaze yourself at how much sunk in the first time.
