I've seen and heard it mentioned before
- 0Oct 3, '13 by KRSLPNI've read on these pages before about LPNs getting special certifications through online and/or old fashioned textbook instruction.
I am interested in gaining certification to assist myself in advancing my career.
Would someone be kind enough to list specific websites or addresses where I can gain the information I am seeking.
- 0Oct 3, '13 by TheCommuter, ASN, RN Senior ModeratorHi, there. I'm glad you revived the topic of certifications for LPNs who wish to advance their careers and enrich their knowledge base.
I'm simply going to copy and paste an older post that was created by one of our site administrators (sirI) back in 2007. The information regarding certifications for LPNs remains relevant to this very day. We wish you the best of luck with your future endeavors!
