Browse our list of approved LPN programs in Kansas (KS)

To be able to enroll in an LPN training program in Kansas, you have to possess a high school diploma or its equivalent. LPN training is offered in community colleges, vocational schools, and some public high schools. Aside from these schools, LPN training programs are also available online for added convenience.

Many prestigious universities offer LPN training courses through their online affiliations. You can now realize your dream of becoming a student of a remote university. The LPN training you acquire in traditional campus schools follows the same curriculum as the LPN courses offered on the internet.

The training program is made up of two phases that include the theoretical phase and the academic phase. During the academic stage, you are required to attend classroom sessions. The subjects included in LPN training courses include anatomy, physiology, child development, medical terminology, communications skills, first aid, and nutrition. Online LPN online training programs are more convenient due to scheduling flexibility and the ease of studying from your home. You do not have to be physically present in a classroom to complete required LPN course work. There is no need for you to wake up early and rush to school. All you have to do is look for an ideal place where you can study your lessons.

The second phase is the clinical practice portion. This requires the student to perform hands-on training in hospitals and other medical treatment facilities. Online LPN training students are not excused from this training. This is a very essential part of the program because this is where you practice the skills you have learned during the theoretical part. The clinical phase allows you practice how to take the vitals of your patients. This includes taking temperature, blood pressure, heart beat rate, and blood sugar count. You will be trained on how to perform injections and enemas for your patients as well.

As soon as you have completed this training, you will be eligible for the licensing test given by the official certifying department of Kansas. You have to pass this test to earn the LPN certification. The license provides you with the chance to apply at various medical institutions across the state to work as a practical nurse.

Duties of LPNs include administering medical prescriptions and providing patients’ bedside needs. Some patients can not communicate well because of some defects. Others are too weak to speak. An LPN has to find a way to communicate with their patients. Licensed practical nurses play a very significant role in the treatment and the recovery of patients. They are the link between doctors and patients.
