What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
If you would like to start a career as a licensed practical nurse, you will need to complete proper training and education in order to work in the field. You will have to attend a post secondary school in order to obtain a degree or certification. After you have completed your classes, you will need to take an exam to get a certificate. Then you will be able to apply for a job in the health care field.


Step One: You will need to begin searching around for a school that you can attend fulltime or part time. If you are working and want to continue working while you're studying to become an LPN, you can do so by taking part time classes. Then if you're looking to complete your courses quickly, you should consider taking classes fulltime. The school you choose doesn't have to be a physical location, there are plenty of online schools that you can choose from.

Step Two: Do a thorough search of the schools and research those that you find. Schools that offer LPN classes include nursing schools, colleges and universities. Ensure that the school you decide to apply to is accredited by your state and/or nationally.

Step Three: Now, that you're in classes, you need to focus on getting everything completed. You will study courses like chemistry and biology.

Step Four: Next, you will have to complete hospital training, which cannot be done online. You will have train inside of a health care facility in order to get hands on training.

Step Five: After you complete all of the requirements of your class, you will need to take the state licensing exam called the NCLEX-PN. The exam will test your knowledge on what you have learned in your courses. Once you pass, you will be able to work within the field as a licensed practical nurse.
