LPN Education and Certification in Montana
The first step to working as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Montana is earning your LPN degree and passing the NCLEX-PN exam. After you have graduated you will be ready to be licensed by the Montana Board of Nursing.
Becoming licensed is necessary to work as an LPN in this state. The license application will require you to submit a copy of your LPN school transcript and an $85 fee. In order to obtain your license you will also need to be CPR certified.
In Montana, you will need to renew your license every two years if you want to continue working as an LPN. If you are working as an LPN when you apply for renewal or if you have worked as one in the past five years, you will not be required to take any continuing education classes.
