Ohio LPN Training

In today's economy, it is common for individuals to feel stuck in a career or to worry about the future. Some say that now is the best time to expand one's skill set with further education. Ohio LPN training is a great chance to begin a new career that is both exciting and secure.

Ohio LPN training is a specialized course of education that makes it possible for individuals to become licensed practical nurses. In health care settings, licensed practical nurses play an important role in providing a high level of bedside patient care. LPNs are responsible for making the patient comfortable and for facilitating communication between the patient and other members of the medical team.

Becoming an LPN in Ohio

The first step in becoming an LPN in Ohio is to complete a nursing education program that fulfills one of the following requirements:

  • It is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing
  • It is approved by a jurisdiction of the national council of state boards of nursing
  • It has been determined acceptable by the board for a foreign-educated nursing graduate
  • If the applicant is foreign-educated, he or she must also submit a full education course-by-course report from the Credentialing Evaluation Service (CES) and CGFNS verification. In addition, he or she must provide evidence of passing the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

    After Completing the Training

    Once the education requirement has been fulfilled, an individual can apply for licensure by examination and register to take the NCLEX-PN.

    In Ohio, LPNs can also become registered by endorsement. In order to do so, he or she must submit the following items to the board:

    • Application and $75 fee
    • Proof of successful completion of medication administration/IV therapy course
    • Foreign graduates: Official transcript (in English or a Credentialing Evaluation Service (CES) report from CGFNS and evidence of English proficiency
    • License Verification
    • Continuing Education (evidence of 2 contact hours)
    • Criminal background check
    • Affidavit (signed and notarized)

    A temporary permit may also be granted to those seeking licensure by endorsement. The permit is non-renewable and valid for 180 days.

    Renewing an LPN License

    The LPN licensure period runs from September 1st of an even-numbered year to August 31st of the next even-numbered year. An LPN must satisfy continuing education (CE) requirements in order to renew his or her license. LPNs must complete at least 24 CE contact hours in a 2 year period. LPNs licensed by endorsement in Ohio for 1 year or less need only complete 12 contact hours of continuing education.

    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.
