Virginia LPN Training

Virginia LPN training is a specialized education option designed to prepare individuals for a career as a licensed practical nurse. In hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health facilities, doctors and other medical professionals depend on the services of licensed practical nurses. While doctors make many of the decisions about treatment, licensed practical nurses are responsible for making patients feel comfortable.

LPN training is especially appealing in today's economy because it provides a specialized skill set in a relatively short amount of time.

Becoming an LPN in Virginia

An individual can become an LPN in Virginia by examination or endorsement. In order to be eligible for licensure by examination, a potential nurse must have completed a PN state-approved education program that provided at least the minimum of 400 hours of supervised direct client care. Once this is completed, a graduate is eligible to take the NCLEX exam.

An individual is eligible for licensure by endorsement if he or she graduated from an approved nursing education program in another state and was already licensed by examination, or if he or she is scheduled to take the NCLEX in another state.

Additional Resources

Like in other parts of the country, LPNs in Virginia 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 Virginia 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.
