Good afternoon, KellAnn:
NC is probably different than FL. LPN is a 3 semester program that appears to require a high school diploma as a prerequisite for enrollment. There are some concurrent enrollment possibilities for some High School seniors. In Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) students can take AP classes that count towards college credit if the end of course test scores are 5's. A HS student might strategically take LPN required courses at the AP level to satisfy the general requirements of the LPN certificate, then only have a few requirements remaining after graduation. Here is a good place to start. http://www.ncbon.com/dcp/i/nursing-education-programs-in-nor
After researching, I would check into a CMS magnet program high school to see what tracks they offer and check with a community college to see what coursework is required and whether HS AP would satisfy it. We are also close to SC, so the above strategy might also work in York or Lancaster County, SC areas. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up.
