Arizona LPN Training

A career as an LPN is challenging and rewarding, and allowing individuals to fulfill their desire to help others and improve the health of the community. Becoming a registered nurse can take many years of training, but in about a year, a person can start working as a licensed practical nurse, providing much needed support to doctors and nurses.

Doctors and nurses are responsible for making major decisions about patient diagnoses and treatment, but they rely on the support of well-trained assistants like LPNs to help them carry out these treatment plans. Licensed practical nurses are there to provide patients with basic bedside care and to facilitate better communication between nurses and patients. For anyone who likes working with people and has always been interested in the health care industry, a career as an LPN could be a great match.

Becoming an LPN in Arizona

In order to become an LPN in Arizona, an individual must have:

  • Received a diploma or certificate from a state-approved nursing program
  • Passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)
  • Earned a previous or current license in another state or territory
  • Met one of the following requirements:
    • Practiced as a nurse for 960 hours or more in the past 5 years
    • Graduated from a nursing program and obtained a degree within the past 5 years
    • Completed an Arizona Board approved refresher course in the past 5 years
    • Obtained an advanced nursing degree in the past 5 years

If an applicant has been trained as an LPN in a foreign country, he or she must submit:

  • Proof that he or she has met the educational requirements
  • Proof of English Language Skills
  • Proof of Practice
  • Proof that he or she has passed the NCLEX
  • Additional Resources

Like in other parts of the country, LPNs in Arizona work directly with patients, clients, and facility 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 Arizona 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 or personal life.
