Any LPN programs in Illinois?

  1. 0 I wasn't sure if there were LPN programs in Illinois...Do they offer any at the hospitals or just the colleges? Where? Thanks for any direction on this.

    Welcome to!

    Many of the LPN Programs are at the Community College level. I know of a few in the North part of the state.

    Illinois Valley Community College in Oglesby has an LPN program...basically you take 1st year of the ADN and then it's a summer course. I took the course before coming back in the fall for the 2nd yr of ADN. It was nice because then I could sit for boards and see what it was like and work as an LPN almost a whole year before getting my RN the following May.
