LPN Programs

As a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or licensed vocational nurse (LVN), you may work closely with physicians and spend a fulfilling career helping those who are injured or sick. Nurses may be often tasked with monitoring a patient's blood pressure, pulse, height, weight, and more, and recording these statistics on the patient's chart. Licensed practical nurses also bathe and dress patients, make them as comfortable as possible, help them walk or eat when they are unable, and work alongside physicians to help create a specialized treatment plan for each patient.

How to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

If you enjoy helping people and have been exploring ways to build a career in the medical field, you may want to consider becoming a licensed practical nurse (LPN). An LPN has many duties, ranging from taking vital signs, performing lab work, instructing patients and their families in preventative health skills and helping to oversee nursing aides.

In order to pursue a licensed practical nurse, you may have to complete the requirements of your particular state, which usually involves graduating from an LPN program and then passing your state's nursing exam.

Before you are allowed to begin training, you may need a high school diploma, although some training programs may accept applicants who have completed a GED program. Next, you should explore the different training schools in your area that offer an LPN program. These courses are usually offered at junior colleges or vocational and technical schools. Some hospitals also offer LPN training courses.
