LPN training can be completed in a variety of ways. There is online training, classroom training, or a combination of the two. Before starting your LPN training there are many factors that you should consider. The first step is to locate a list of accredited LPN programs near you and contact individual schools for enrollment requirements and procedures.

Online training is excellent for completing coursework and is ideal for those with full-time work schedules. It does not however, help with the hands-on clinical skills portion of the training program which is a crucial piece of the puzzle. Those who study on campus are able to attend classes, talk with their instructors, study with groups of students, attend lab classes and practice their clinical skills.

Some students will combine the two types of learning (online and campus) and enroll in a hybrid LPN training program. Many feel comfortable completing their learning classes online, and visiting a physical setting to ask questions, discuss concepts and work on clinical skills. LPN training takes anywhere from 12 to 24 months to finish in Delaware. Most 24-month programs result in an Associate’s degree.

Before entering an LPN program in Delaware there are certain requirements that must be met. A high school diploma or GED is required. Other classes include math, psychology, anatomy, biology, microbiology and English. LPN students are tested in math, reading, writing and science. Any LPN student who scores high enough is allowed to skip the general education courses and go right into LPN training concepts.

There are many healthcare facilities that an LPN can potentially find work after training is completed. Check out different areas, talk with people and find out how likely the prospects of obtaining a job would be in the area you would like to work in. Keep your mind and options open.

After becoming an LPN you will typically be on your feet for 8 hours or more every day. You will have to be able to stand, squat, reach, bend, fill out forms, take phone calls and answer patient call lights and lift heavy patients. Sometimes you may have to work over time. Listen politely and be a problem solver. LPN training is relatively short compared to many other health care professions and offers a promising career path for those who are so inclined.
