I am thinking of becoming a LPN and was wondering how long is the education required to become one. I am looking at a community college nearby. How long does it approximately take to become an LPN in a community college?
It’s great to hear you are seriously considering becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Most LPN courses and LPN training offered usually run anywhere between 12 – 18 months. Sometimes you have colleges that have an associate degree that might take close to 2 years but that will also include any hands on training that is required to become a LPN.
One other career option you might want to consider is to do an additional 12 – 18 months and become a registered nurse. Nursing is in great demand and there is a lot of pent up demand for LPN’s, CNA‘s and RN‘s. In the scheme of things becoming a RN will open more doors for you as well as increase your long term earning. Good luck
