LPN Education and Certification in Michigan
To start a career as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Michigan, you will need to obtain a license. There are several steps to getting a license in this state, the first being earning your LPN degree. After you have earned your degree you must pass the NCLEX-PN exam and become CPR certified.
When you have completed these steps you will apply to the Michigan Board of Nursing for your license, which will cost $85. Part of the application process will include submitting a copy of your LPN school transcript to the board.
Remember that your license will need to be renewed every two years if you wish to continue working as an LPN in Michigan. Before you can renew your license you will need to participate in 25 credit hours of continuing education classes that are approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing. One of these continuing education classes must be about symptom and pain management. The continuing education courses for Michigan may be available online.
