Quote from SuzieVN
When I went through PN school (3000 years ago), we had to take a NAPNES class outside of the school, and get a NAPNES 'card', or we could not pass meds upon graduation- meaning the LPN license would have been useless. Is this the same today, that as an LPN you need a credential to pass meds?
Not when I graduated. No one in my class had/has a NAPNES card in pharmacology to work. Not sure my employer even knows what NAPNES is.
my one employer stated its a competency covered in nursing school.
They do require additional education/credentials for LPNs to do trach/vent, IV & phlebotomy.
