    I didn't read every post on this thread but used "Control Find" and searched for posts regarding orthopaedics and no luck. I tried the NAON website (National Association for Orthopaedic Nurses) and they only provide certification for RN's.

    Does anyone know where, if any, I can take classes to be certified as an LPN?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    In Arizona LPNs can do many other things that other states do not allow. If certified , PICC dsg changes, hanging IVs via PICC line.
    I am in the process of wound care certification , which is challenging but in the Sub Acute facility I work at once I gain that wound care certification I will be making almost as much as the RNs.
    LPNs have many options , its all what you do .

    I am currently working in a detox/residential facility in Texas and I absolutely LOVE it! I am also wanting to expand my career options & further my education in this field, any suggestions for me? Any classes or certifications that i should look for. I would eventually like to go back to school and get my NP w/ spec. in addictionology, but I think that goal is not in the very near future...

    It depends on what you are interested in specializing in. While volunteering at a Naval hospital Mother Infant Unit through the American Red Cross, I got certified in NRP(Neonatal Resuscitation Program) and S.T.A.B.L.E.
