How to Choose an Online LPN Program

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Now, that you have decided to study to become an LPN, also known as a licensed practical nurse, you will need to begin searching around for schools. In this field, you will be assisting patients in clinics, hospitals or private practices.

Some even work in nursing homes. In order for you to begin working in this field, you will need to take an LPN program from a school that is accredited in the state you will be working in. Of course, you don't have to attend a physical school location; you have the option of taking an online LPN program.

Step One: The first step you need to take is deciding how long you want to be in school for. What type of online LPN program do you want to take and for what kind of degree? Most likely you want to study to become an LPN as fast as possible. If this is what you want, search around for a program that will allow you to take classes' fulltime online. Some have been able to earn their licensed practical nurse certificate in as little as 9 months. Once this is done, you can take the state licensing exam to begin working in the field.

Step Two: Before you can apply to an online LPN program, you will need to ensure that you have all of your transcripts readily available to show the school you're applying to. If you don't have academic credentials in certain areas, but feel you have the knowledge, ask to take an exam to prove it, then you can skip those classes.

Step Three: Research the program you're considering to ensure that they are accredited.

Step Four: Look over the classes you'll be taking (how many credits are needed to pass to get the degree or certificate). Stay on top of things and surely you'll be in the nursing field in no time.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
