I am a current nursing student, with 13 years in the medical/nursing setting. I am trying to decide to sit for the LPN boards since I am almost halfway done with Nursing and finish my degree with Excelsior. I have alot of experience in the medical field. I was a Medic for 5 years and have worked in various settings in the medical field. Anyone's input would be appreciated. Is it worth it? What are the Nursing Concepts tests like?

It is very worth it. If you can pass the NCLEX-PN
then you can get through the first 3 nursing concept exams with no problem at all. Then focus on diagnostic terms and assessment skill, the rest of the program will keep you keen and motivated, should take less than six months to complete, and well worth the time and money to get ahead in a short time.
There are a lot of us enrolled and I am sure we can help motivate eachother through out the journey.
Go for it : )

Thanks Jsmith44106! I appreciate your reply. I am seriously considering doing this. If I do, networking with you and others will keep me motivated. Are you a LPN? Have you taken the Exams?
