How to Take an LPN to RN Program in West Virginia

In West Virginia, application to an LPN to RN program requires transcripts from previous training first and any other assets, such as volunteer experience or letters of recommendation from employers. Once accepted, studies last a year and cover topics like advanced biology and physiology, nutrition and communication, while also setting aside significant time on nursing specific management, leadership, assessment, specific populations (elderly, children, etc) and beyond. The final result should mean that students are well prepared to take the NCLEX-RN and become licensed as Registered Nurses—as do around 90 percent of graduates from West Virginia LPN to RN programs.

The NCLEX-RN runs through Pearson Vue and costs $200 and also requires application to the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses, which costs $51.50. The board requires a reference that the applicant is of good moral character, and answering a number of questions related to personal behavior, such as the use of illicit drugs. Only once the application is accepted and test passed are students ready to graduate as a Registered Nurse with an Associate Degree and enjoy their improved workplace standing and opportunities as a Registered Nurse.
