LPN Education and Certification in Nebraska
If you want to work as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Nebraska you must be licensed by the Nebraska Board of Nursing. Before you can apply for a license you will need to earn your LPN degree, pass the NCLEX-PN exam and become CPR certified.
The application process in this state includes an $85 fee and you will be asked to submit a copy of your LPN school transcript to the board.
Keep in mind that in Nebraska you must renew your LPN license every two years. To qualify for renewal you will need to finish 500 practice hours in the previous five years and complete 20 credit hours of continuing education classes in the past two years as approved by the board, have graduated two to five years earlier and completed 20 credit hours of continuing education, earned a certification in a specialized area of nursing or have participated in a refresher course (that was approved by the board) in the last five years.
