LPN Education and Certification in Delaware
To work as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Delaware, you must obtain a state license. In this state, the Delaware Board of Nursing manages licensure. Before you can apply for a license you must earn your LPN degree and pass the NCLEX-PN exam.
As you apply for your license you will need to provide a copy of your transcript to the board and pay an $85 fee. To qualify for a license you must be CPR certified.
In Delaware you will need to renew your LPN license every two years. In this state, LPN licenses must be renewed every even year while RN licenses are renewed every odd year.
After you renew your license the first time you will be required to participate in 30 credit hours of continuing education classes to renew your license every two years. The Delaware Board of Nursing must approve these classes.
