Browse our list of approved LPN programs in Michigan (MI)

Becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is a popular career choice. Many people start their careers as an LPN and later take additional schooling to become a registered nurse (RN). Nursing careers provide a sense of accomplishment and can be very rewarding when you are part of a medical team that improves patient’s quality of life and recovery times. In Michigan, LPNs make up about 18% of all nurses.

It typically takes one year to complete an LPN education program. Most two-year LPN programs result in an Associate’s degree that can be used outside of the field of nursing. If you are taking classes part-time the standard LPN training might take up to two years. Typically all that is required to enter an LPN program is a high school diploma or a GED. Some schools may require you to have taken certain classes in high school and to have maintained a certain GPA. Most schools do not have this requirement. Many community colleges now offer LPN programs. LPN training courses are made up of classroom learning and hands-on clinical practice. Once the program has been completed you will need to take and pass the NCLEX-PN exam. You are also required to get CPR certified and apply for a license through the Michigan Board of Nursing. In the state of Michigan, LPNs must get their license renewed every two years. In order for the renewal to occur, you must complete twenty-five hours of continued education. These courses can be taken online and must be board approved.

LPNs in Michigan make an average of $20.45 an hour, putting their annual salary at about $41,670. You have the potential to make a bigger salary if your work the evening or night shifts, as well as if work on holidays. Typically, LPNs that work in hospitals will make more than an LPN who is working at a doctor’s office. The more experienced LPNs will also earn more than an LPN who is just starting out, since they have more work experience.

During this time there is a nursing shortage all over the the United States. Because of this, the job outlook for all nurses is positive and predicted to increase over the next decade. In an effort to hire more nurses, medical facilities might offer incentives, such as higher pay, flexible schedules and reimbursed schooling. Some places might even offering bonuses to nurses who come to work for them.
