LPN Education and Certification in Connecticut
If you want to work as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Connecticut, you will need to obtain a license from the Connecticut Board of Nursing. Before you can apply for a license you need to earn your LPN degree and pass the NCLEX-PN exam.
There is an $85 fee associated with an LPN license application and you will need to send a copy of your LPN school transcript to the board. You must also be CPR certified to qualify for a license.
After you have obtained your license you will need to renew it every year. Unlike many other states, continuing education courses are not required for license renewal in Connecticut.
