LPN Programs in Michigan

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.
