How to Take an LPN to RN Program in New Jersey

While grades during LPN training are perhaps the most important factor when applying to an LPN to RN program in New Jersey, employer references and volunteer experience also come into play. After a student has been accepted, course work is largely a continuation of LPN training with more training in nurse management and big-picture planning processes, while also including some general studies in the liberal arts and sciences. Ultimately, it prepares students for the NCLEX-RN, which is the national Registered Nurse licensure examination. Administered by Pearson Vue at a cost of $200, the New Jersey Board of Nursing also charges a $200 application fee which includes a criminal background check and fingerprinting. Once the test has been passed, as is the case for 9 out of 10 graduates, one is ready to move from a Licensed Practical Nurse and become a Registered Nurseā€”to begin supervising their former peers and reaping the rewards of RN licensure.
