How to Do a LPN to RN Program in Maryland

An LPN to RN education program in Maryland takes a year. Acceptance is based on both grades during LPN training and volunteer and work experience as well as employer recommendations. Core nursing courses in both practices and concepts of nursing make up the bulk of the training, alongside a few general studies courses in topics like math, psychology, and human relations. The final test for RN licensure is the National Council Licensure Examination, Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN). It costs $200 to take from Pearson Vue and also requires application to the Maryland Board of Nursing, with proof of completion of LPN to RN training and a criminal background check.
