Michigan LPN Training

Many people aspire to have jobs that will allow them to assist people in living happier, healthier lives, but they become discouraged when they learn that it can take many years of expensive schooling to achieve the status of doctor or registered nurse. It's important to know, however, that doctors and nurses aren't the only ones that provide important services in a hospital. Anyone who is interested in embarking on a new career that will allow them to improve people's lives might want to think about Michigan LPN training.

Michigan LPN training is a specially designed educational curriculum that that trains students to become licensed practical nurses. Most accredited LPN training programs can be complete in one year, and provide knowledge of the medical field as well as hands-on training for dealing with patients. Licensed practical nurses are responsible for providing superior bedside care when the nurses and doctors are absent.

Becoming an LPN in Michigan

In order to become an LPN by endorsement in Michigan, an individual must:

  • Submit a completed application along with the application fee
  • Provide evidence that he or she is currently licensed as an LPN in another US state that has requirements substantially equivalent to those in Michigan and that he or she has passed the NCLEX in the original state
  • Have proof of his or her license sent directly to the Michigan Board of Nursing from any state or province where he or she has ever held a license
  • Once an application has been submitted along with the application fee, it is valid for 2 years. If the individual does not meet the requirements within those 2 years, the application will become invalid and he or she will have to reapply.

    Nurses Educated Outside the U.S.

    LPN applicants who were educated outside the United States in a program that is taught in English must do one of the following:

    • Have professional report created by the Credentials Evaluation Service of the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools
    • Have a course-by-course evaluation of his or her nursing education reviewed and certified by a credentialing agency accredited by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services
    • Submit the LPN Credentials Form to his or her nursing school for completion

    If an individual was educated as an LPN outside the United States in a language other than English, then he or she must do one of the following:

    • Have professional report created by the Credentials Evaluation Service of the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (His or her CGFNS Language Report on English proficiency must also be submitted.)
    • Have a course-by-course evaluation of his or her nursing education reviewed and certified by a credentialing agency accredited by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services

    An applicant who was educated in a language other than English must also pass the TOEFL administered by the Educational Testing Service.

    On-Campus & Online LPN Schools

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

    LPN 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 Michigan LPN, you might specialize in obstetrics, pediatrics, surgery or psychiatry or another nursing specialty that interests you.

    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.
