Jurisprudence

Which statement about LPNs in the 2018 Jurisprudence exam cohort is true?

A: LPNs do not need to complete the Jurisprudence exam.

That’s not right. All LPNs in the 2018 cohort must complete an exam with no significant gaps to meet the Quality Assurance requirement to renew their registration.

B: LPNs need to complete an exam with no significant gaps to meet the Quality Assurance requirement to renew their registration.

Correct! All LPNs in the 2018 cohort must complete an exam with no significant gaps to meet the Quality Assurance requirement to renew their registration.

C: LPNs can complete the Jurisprudence exam with a colleague or friend.

That’s not right. The Jurisprudence exam tests an individual LPN’s ability to apply the legal principles, regulations and standards that govern LPN practice in BC. Completing the exam with someone else is considered cheating and could lead to an investigation into your professional conduct.

D: LPNs must complete their first exam with no significant gaps.

That’s not right. It’s true that LPNs must complete an exam with no significant gaps to meet the Quality Assurance requirement, but they are given three exam attempts.
