She’s a great LPN, but does she know what she needs to know to be a great RN?

Nurse educators and students will find out with the LPN STEP® Assessments. Developed by expert nurse educators, this two-product program assists in determining what knowledge is needed for each LPN who is considering pursuing an RN license.

The LPN STEP Proctored Assessment is an insightful pre-admissions tool that consists of an eight topic screening assessment that is based on the NCLEX-PN® test plan. The LPN STEP Online Practice assessment helps students prepare by identifying topics to improve on in nursing knowledge prior to taking the LPN STEP Proctored Assessment.

This program is a great resource for both educator and student in evaluating preparedness. It’s also useful for academic and career planning.
