I too am a LPN and have been for 14 years. :spin: I have worked in hospital, long term care, physician's clinics, home health, & assisted living. I live in So.

    Today's my first day being a member. I'm already impressed and very thankful to have had found this, not only exciting but informative website-all to help each other thrive in this industry. I'll be in the core program for LVN in a couple of weeks, and it feels like I have mentors left and right already to guide me along.

    Thanks to everyone!

    No problem Good Luck in school. i start in September:spin:

    I am an LPN working in a nursing home in Iowa. I oversee the restorative department. There is a confrence in August offered by Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN), I would be able to attain the CEU's but not certification because I'm not an RN. Does anyone know of any certifications for LPN's in Restorative? Any insight would be appreciated, Thanks

    You can go to NFLPN to register to take the Gerontology Certification. I take it tomorrow at my place of employment. Call them or e-mail them though to get a list of what you will need to send. I went back and forth a few times until I had sent all they needed. Copy of LPN liscense, proctor,ect... Pray for me to pass tomorrow. I've been studying like crazy and I'm so nervous!

    FYI...always check out your scope of practice in your state. You can get certified in many things you can not practice!
