Texas LPN Training

In this sluggish economy, many businesses that used to welcome new trainees are now reserving open positions only for those who have many years of schooling or experience. The feeling of losing out on good jobs due to limited education is common. Texas LPN training helps to prepare individuals for exciting jobs in the medical profession and can be completed in a short time.

Texas LPN training is an education option that prepares graduates for a career as a licensed practical nurse. This career path is open to those who have a desire to work with others on a personal level and can handle the fast-paced environment of a health care setting.

Becoming an LPN in Texas

In Texas, Licensed Practical Nurses are also referred to as Licensed Vocational Nurses. The first step in becoming an LPN is to graduate from high school or obtain a GED, and then complete a practical/vocational nursing program with at least a "C" in all nursing courses.

After Completing the Training

In addition to the education requirements, an applicant must pass either the State Board Test Pool Examination (SBTPE) or the NCLEX PN. There is a $200 registration fee.

Along with the licensure application, individuals must submit either a Livescan Fingerprinting or an FBI fingerprint card along with a criminal background check. The former is required of Texas residents and the latter for those who reside outside of Texas.

Individuals from another jurisdiction can become licensed in Texas so long as the licensing requirements are equivalent to those in Texas.

Individuals from a foreign country can become licensed upon completion of a criminal background check, passing of an English Proficiency exam, a Credential Evaluation Service (CES) Full Education course-by-course report, and a Verification of Licensure sent to the Board along with the NCLEX application and $200 fee.

Renewing an LPN License

Texas LPNs must renew licenses every 2 years. 20 hours of continuing education are required for renewal.

Texas LPN Resources

Like in other parts of the country, LPNs in Texas work directly with patients, clients, and residents.

LVN duties include performing basic diagnostic tests, administering medication to patients, giving shots and injections, obtaining patients' vital signs, as well as many other important responsibilities.

As a Texas LVN, you might specialize in obstetrics, pediatrics, surgery or psychiatry or another nursing specialty that interests you.

By providing the most compehensive list of nursing schools, NurseGroups.com helps you find the best LVN programs in Texas, including the best online LVN schools accepting students in Texas.

Why Online LVN Classes?

Being a licensed vocational nurse is a great career. But many working adults who want to become an LVN have an extremely busy schedule - balancing a full-time job, family commitments and other personal responsibilities. The traditional classroom setting offered by most local LVN schools doesn't offer the same flexibility as taking their LVN 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. LVN students can access their online classroom 24 hours per day / seven days per week.

Also, taking LVN 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 LVN training, without interfering with their current job and personal life.
