Start your nursing career as a Practical Nurse with a one year training program

Browse our list of approved LPN programs in Florida (FL)

Nursing is a career that is in great demand. It offers a flexible work schedule, excellent health care benefits, and a decent salary. An entry level degree for nursing is the LPN certification. Practical nurses (also called vocational nurses) make up over twenty percent of all nurses. This career is popular because it typically only requires one year of full-time study to complete. An LPN nurse works under the direct supervision of an RN, physician, or LPN charge nurse.

An LPN nurse spends the day measuring vital signs, monitoring medications for dosage and patient compliance. If they notice a change in a patient, they are responsible to report this to their supervisor or doctor. The average salary for an LPN is just under $20 per hour in Florida.

Florida LPN programs are offered in high schools, secondary vocational-technical centers, community colleges, or hospitals. If a student already knows while they are in high school that this is the career they want, they can apply for acceptance at one of the health high school magnet programs and graduate with a high school degree and the course work for the LPN completed.

The classes you will be attending will deal with the basic nursing concepts of physiology, nutrition, first-aid anatomy, social sciences and nursing theory. You will also cover biology, medical terminology, practical nursing skills,medical and surgical disorders, patient care, body structure and functions, and health care systems. You will be expected to participate in clinicals so that you can receive valuable hands on experience. You are also required to take an HIV and AIDS course and a 1-hour course on domestic violence. You will need to show a diploma or transcript as proof high school diploma or equivalent in order to be accepted into a Florida LPN program. Once you have your license, you must renew it every two years.

Students must complete a total of almost fifteen hundred hours including the courses, lab work, and clinical rotations. You have up to three opportunities to pass a written examination given by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing after completing the nursing program. The exam fee is two hundred dollars. Many people have discovered how convenient online classes can be and have made arrangements to set up their clinicals at a local medical facility.
