How To Become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

Some states differ in schooling and licensing for becoming a licensed practical nurse but eschewing the college schooling path and entering a career school you’ll probably only spend nine to twelve months in training before being able to take the required exams. Earlier we mentioned the possibility of using online programs should you choose to further your medical education. An LPN has the ability to get an Associate degree in Nursing from start to finish online in less than a year while still being employed at their regular LPN job. If you’re a bit short of money there are employer’s tuition repayments or reimbursement plans available.
