What's the process for becoming an LPN?

  1. Hello, I am 27 years old and live in brooklyn. A few years ago I attended Medgar Evers College, my major was nursing . Right before the semester started I was in car accident and ended up with a broken arm. Anyway, being that nursing is my life long dream i pushed myself to attend classes every day, but the pain that i endured daily did not allow me to continue. So I withdrew officically, now a few years later wanting to return to school and finish the program the school is telling me that I owe money and I cannot return until these monies are paid to them. I want to do this so bad and be able to take care of my family, I have an 8 and 6 year an a 3 month old. I have a supporting husband who works as a plumber. I want this so bad iI can taste it, is it too late ? what do i need to do to get into an LPN program? Should I brush up on my math? Someone please help Thank- You in advance.

    You need to apply to an accredited LPN program. Most schools require an entrance exam that includes math, so yes, it is necessary for you to brush up on your math. Most LPN programs take 1-2 years to complete I believe. Google "LPN programs" You should be able to locate a few not too far from you.Hope I helped

    Pay back the money and go to Medgar Evers.
