    Become a Licensed Practical Nurse

    Most people aren’t familiar with the title of licensed practical nurse (LPN) but they are very familiar with the people that currently work in this field.  LPN’s are the nurses in the doctor’s office and hospitals that do exactly what their name implies (all of the practical procedures).  They take blood pressures, weight, temperatures, and other basic information to provide to either an RN (registered nurse) or directly to a doctor.  LPN’s are in high demand as there are many small clinics and doctor’s offices coupled with the fact that we have an aging population that simply needs more medical care.  We have put together a list of online colleges that provide excellent degree programs for people wanting to become an LPN.  Please look at the list of schools below and when you find one that interests you press the Click Here button to get more information from the school.
