Kansas LPN Training

It's important for anyone to weigh the costs of returning to school against the money that they could be earning in another job during that time. Anyone who is interested in the opportunities that will be open to them with more education, but don't want to wait several years before they can put their knowledge to use might be a good idea to consider Kansas LPN training.

Kansas LPN training is a specialized course that trains an individual to become a licensed practical nurse. In hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health facilities, doctors and nurses are responsible for the responsibility of examining, diagnosing, and forming treatment plans for each patient. However, they depend greatly upon licensed practical nurses to help them put those plans into action. LPNs are responsible for attending to patients' bedside needs as well as facilitating better communication between patients and their medical team.

Becoming an LPN in Kansas

In Kansas, one can become licensed either by examination or endorsement. The first step in becoming licensed is to have completed an approved nursing education program.

In order for an individual to be licensed by examination, he or she must submit a licensure application and pass the NCLEX. He or she has a 2 year window following graduation in which to take the licensing exam before additional requirements must be met.

The following items must be submitted for licensure by examination:

  • Completed application and any required fees
  • Valid photo
  • Completed waivers and fingerprint card
  • NCLEX registration and Authorization to Test (ATT)
  • Official Transcript

Graduates of foreign nursing schools must have a CGFNS Professional Report for credential evaluation. If an individual graduated from a program that was not taught in English, he or she must prove English proficiency by taking the TOEFL or similar exam.

Those who are licensed in another state or jurisdiction can become licensed by endorsement. In order to do so, individuals must submit the following to the board:

  • Completed application and fees
  • Criminal background check must be a written explanation of any convictions or disciplinary actions
  • Completed fingerprint card
  • Official transcript showing education requirements are met
  • If one has not practiced in the past 5 years: completion of an approved refresher course
  • Verification from original state of licensure

Renewing an LPN License

Licenses are valid for two years, and expiration depends on an individual's date of birth. LPNs in Kansas are required to complete 30 hours of continuing education in each renewal period to be eligible.

Why Online LPN Classes?

Being a licensed practical nurse is a great career. But many working adults who want to become an LPN have an extremely busy schedule - balancing a full-time job, family commitments and other personal responsibilities. The traditional classroom setting offered by most local LPN schools doesn't offer the same flexibility as taking their LPN classes online.

Online programs allow students to fit their education into their already busy schedule - studying and taking exams when it's convenient for them. LPN students can access their online classroom 24 hours per day / seven days per week.

Also, taking LPN nursing courses online saves students even more time, as online students don't need to commute to school. Online schools enable busy people to get LPN training, without interfering with their current job and personal life.
