Can a LPN from Canada work an an RN in California?
LPNs (Licensed practical nurse) in Canada go through 2 years of college. Is that equivalent to an RN program in the States because I heard that being an LPN or LVN in the States only takes one year of college?? Is an RN program a college program in the States? How long is the program? If I get an LPN license here in Toronto, Canada and take a equivalency exam to work in California, what would my job description and title be?

No. An LPN from Canada would not be the equivalent of an RN in California.It is true that an Associates Degree in the US is only 2 years but that doesn't mean it is equal to our LPN schooling.In order to qualify to write the NCLEX ( the US nursing exam) you would need to have completed an RN program.
