If you want to work as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Alaska, you will need to earn your LPN degree. After you earn your degree you will contact the Alaska Board of Nursing to fill out an application. You will be required to submit your LPN school transcript and pay an $85 application fee.
Before you can begin working you will also need to be CPR certified and pass the NCLEX-PN exam. Your LPN license in Alaska will need to be renewed every two years. To be able to renew your license you will need to complete 320 hours of employment, 30 hours of continuing education, 30 hours of professional activities and complete two out of three continuing competencies. These hours must be done through the Alaska Board of Nursing or an approved institution and an approved provider.
