Hi y'all! And to whomever thought of this, many thanks! In the hopes of gaining an LPN license while still working, I just became a CNA. Does anyone know of an online program for LPN training that would allow me to do the clinincals at the LTCF where I work? I did scan lots of education sites but they seem to all require some type of degree already. My education is only to 12th grade. Thanks for your help.

Hi jingles, is there a certain reason that you need to get your degree online? kids? money? just curious, i am currently an LPN, but i am graduating in May '07 with my RN degree. i tried to do the online thing, but it didn't work for me. everyone is different- however i feel that going to a college you gain more experience through clinical time and your fellow students. your teacher is there if you have questions or need extra help. the problem i ran into with the online program is all you do is answer 1000's of questions and then pay 200-300 dollars for each test you need to take. if you fail the test you have to pay again to retake it. this was just my issues with it, i decided to just go to ivy tech. i have been very happy with ivy tech and i feel they get you through the programs and you get excellent clinical experiences. i went to ivy tech for my LPN as well. just thought i would share my experience, hope it was somewhat helpful. let me know if you have any more questions.
