LPN Nursing Schools

What is an LPN?

A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) works closely with patients to ensure that they are receiving optimal medical care. They work in a variety of settings, from hospitals to nursing homes, and are supervised by registered nurses (RNs). LPNs carry out simple medical procedures, including administering medication, assessing patients, dressing wounds and feeding patients that need assistance.

What education will I need to become an LPN?

In contrast to most nursing jobs, starting a career as an LPN will not require you to receive a bachelor's degree or higher, though formal training is required. Most professionals can earn a hospital certificate within 7 months to 1 year. Alternately, an LPN degree can be acquired from a community college or trade school within two years. Before practicing, you will need to pass the N-CLEX-PN certificate examination.

Many students choose to pursue the certification they need to become an LPN through online courses. While this is a great way to ensure that you can pursue your dream career in a way that fits your needs and lifestyle, there are a couple things to consider. First, you must ensure that the school or program in which you are enrolled is approved by your state's board of nursing. Second, you will want to enroll in a program that provides ample hands-on clinical work experience.

The courses that you will study when pursuing the education necessary to become an LPN deal with a broad range of subjects. You will enroll in introductory courses for anatomy, biology, nutrition and physiology. In addition to this, you may also study advanced client care, such as obstetrics, pediatrics or geriatrics.

How can this education help advance my career?

After completing their education, LPNs have a variety of options available to them. Those who enjoy fast-paced environments may choose to work in a hospital, while those who are looking for a quieter atmosphere may choose to work in a physician's office. From home health care services to travel nursing, there are an abundance of career options for those with the proper training.
