Q:

How long do you have to go to school to become an LPN?

A:

To become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), courses take between 9-12 months. This encompasses classroom time and on-hand training at an accepted medical facility in preparation to take the NCLEX-PN exam.

To qualify for LPN courses, potential students must obtain either a high school diploma or GED to enter school. LPN courses are offered in both college and vocational school settings. This allows flexibility to potential students. Courses in the LPN program include subjects like nursing fundamentals, patient relations, anatomy and medical administrative procedures. All courses and on-hand training must be mastered prior to attempting the NCLEX-PN exam. After the passing of the NCLEX-PN exam, students receive official LPN certification to gain employment.
