|If you want to be a licensed
practical nurse, or are thriving to better your experience, then there
are many lpn programs out there for you. Licensed practical nursing
programs include classes or training that can be online, or physical
classes that can be done at a near by College. Registration is fairly
simple, costs vary depending on the program that you wish to be trained
in. A few courses are, Conditions of illness, pharmacology, body structure,
body function, care of mothers and newborns. Take my word for it,
there are plenty of other classes out there for you to take. Once
you have successfully completed the needed and required programs you
are eligible to take the "NCLEX-PN" examination in which
is needed for your license.
Once you have completed and of course passed your program, you
will recieve a certificate. A helpful way to study for your examination,
is using a computer program called the "Saunders comprehensive
Review", you can either purchase this from a store, online,
or you can find it in a nursing textbook that you have recently
purchased. The Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN exam
has about 120 or more questions on each cd. To pass the NCLEX-PN
you will need at least 74%, which for them, is considered the lowest
possible "C". If you get anything believe 74% it is counted
as a fail.
To become a licensed practical nurse, the NCLEX-PN is truely the
only examination(test) you will have to worry about in the long
run, once you pass, your home free. My mom herself took this test
for her LPN, she is an RN today, I myself wish to take this test
soon, she warns me about many pharacology questions and such. By
far the easiest questions to pass, My mother says, are the "dosage
calculations", make sure you study diligently and well for
those questions for you do not want to miss them, they will give
you valuable points on your program licensed practical nurse exam.
To round it up, you can take lpn programs online with flexibility,
or take them with hands on ability at a college or university!
