1) I am about to attend a LPN program at Lebanon Technology & Career Center in Lebanon, MO. My husband is currently in the Army and stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. As soon as I graduate, pass the NCLEX, and receive my license from Missouri we plan to move to Indiana. Do I have to work in Missouri with my Missouri LPN licence before I can apply for an Indiana LPN endorsement?
2) On the Indiana website for LPN endorsement application & instructions it states that you will need to provide official documentation of graduation from a state accredited program in nursing. My school that I am about to attend the LPN program in Missouri is on Missouri Board of Nursing as an approved school of nursing. It also has full approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing, the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education, Department of Higher Education and accredited by North Central Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI). I am just a little confused if there is a difference between accredited and approved. Do you think Indiana will accept the education from my nursing program?
