Hi, I have been doing my LPN by distance education. Here in North Dakota the program I am doing is 2 years long, but I will have my Associates degree when I am done. Anyone else out there doing there LPN by distance education? Just wondering:)
I'm going for my LPN via distance education also. I'm doing mine with Deaconess. I'll sit for the LPN license half way through the program, and then continue on with them to get my RN.
Good luck to you:)
What is the name of the school in North Dakota that you are doing through distance?
Little Panda RN, ASN, RN

Sorry it took so long for me to say, "Good luck to you also"
If anyone else is interested also, I do my distance education through Northland community and Technical college. http://www.distance.minnesota.edu.
I live across the bridge from minnesota.
I know this post was made years ago. I just applied to Northland for the distance LPN (I live several hours south in Minneapolis). How was your experience? Did you feel good about doing online and where did you do your clinicals? I will have to rent a hotel room when I do my clinicals up there. Do you recommend a good place to stay? Fortunately money is not a problem and I do prefer to stay at a hotel that is secure and comfortable. Any info you can give me would be appreciated!
CLUVRN, MSN, RN
OP, I didn't know you could get an associates degree in Practical Nursing. Is that something you can only get in North Dakota? I wonder if I can get one in Florida as well?
Community colleges that offer practical nursing programs offer an associate's degree for those who complete the nursing program and also complete any additional courses needed to get the required units for a degree. A majority of practical nursing students simply opt for completing the nursing program and obtaining a certificate rather than taking a few more classes to get the degree. They are doing themselves a disservice in the process because the degree looks better on a resume than only a certificate and they would be able to answer the "college graduate" question in the affirmative.
