Browse our list of approved LPN programs in Colorado (CO)

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding career that is in high demand, then you might want to consider becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Here in Colorado, if you have a high school diploma and a clean criminal background history, chances are you will be eligible to become an LPN. What is great about LPN programs in Colorado is that the majority of LPN schools are one-year courses. Just imagine you can receive the same benefits from a rewarding career as someone who spent four times the amount of time completing their bachelor’s degree in a standard college. As an LPN your responsibility would be to provide quality care to patients in a variety of facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools and mental health facilities under the supervision of doctors and registered nurses.

Becoming Licensed

As part of the Colorado state Nursing Act, no individual can practice as an LPN without a Colorado state license or temporary permit. In order to qualify to become licensed, one must first successfully complete a state approved practical nursing program. Once an individual successfully completes the nursing program, they are then able to apply for the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX-PN). Once the exam is passed, an individual is now ready and on their way to begin a rewarding career as an LPN.

What To Expect In an LPN Program

Colorado LPN programs are designed to prepare students to administer basic nursing care to patients. Students learn to share in the care of patients in various healthcare and mental health facilities. Students are trained to detect signs and symptoms revealing an illness in conjunction with learning how to effectively communicate the information to other team members. Colorado LPN programs provide a diversified learning experience, while correlating theory and clinical practice. Students are guided and supervised by professional staff throughout their learning experience. Students are not only thoroughly prepared for the NCLEX; they are also prepared for successful careers as nurses.
