LPN Fast Track Training Programs

Fast Path to LPN Certification with LPN Training Programs

The quickest way to enter the nursing field is to obtain your LPN or Licensed Practical Nurse certification from an accredited and state nursing board approved school via fast track lpn training programs. Fast track LPN or LVN programs are offered at on-campus sites and nursing programs online in most states. Online nursing programs still require you to have clinical class room time and hands-on training under supervision.

LPN courses will take you approximately 9 to 18 months to complete. It is important to note that some LPN fast track programs offered are not accredited. You must obtain your practical nursing degree from schools that are approved by the state’s board of nursing.

LPN Requirements

There are some basic requirements that you must meet prior to applying for LPN school. First, you must be at least 18 years old and have your high school diploma or GED. When you apply to LPN schools you will need to take a very basic AST (Academic Skills Test) entrance exam. The test consists of basic math, English and science questions. Typically there is $50 fee from the school to sit for the test and if you fail you simply re-take the test, however, you may have to wait 1 month.

Your LPN training must be a program spanning at a minimum of 9 months.  When you have completed your training program you must then sit and pass the National Council Licensure Exam or NCLEX-PN.  The exam is administered nationwide to entry level nursing students.

LPN Training Courses and Curriculum

While licensed practical nursing programs may vary from program to program there are basics that each school will impart to you. These include the following areas:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Human Growth and Development
  • Psychiatric Nursing
  • Introduction to Pharmacology
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Nutrition and Diet
  • Fundamentals of Nursing

Your LPN training programs will also include chemistry, biology, emergency medical techniques, CPR, first aid and bedside patient care.  Most importantly you will receive supervised instruction form licensed nursing professionals in a clinical and patient care setting.

LPN fast track training programs allow you to enter the nursing field in a very short amount of time compared to many other medical fields.  After you secure your LPN license and gain work experience you may want to consider your next step to become an RN or registered nurse!
