Missouri LPN Training

Missouri LPN training is a fast, easy way for a person to achieve a promising job in the medical career without having to spend ten years of his or her life in school. This specialized training course is designed to prepare men and women to become licensed practical nurses within one year.

It's important to point out that while LPNs don't have the same responsibilities as a registered nurse or nurse practitioner, they are still an integral part of the hospital care experience that most patients have.
