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...:nurse: Pray for me to pass tomorrow. I've been studying like crazy and I'm so nervous!:scrying:

I want to thank you for this information.

I am returning to nursing after a 20 year break & would like to take as many classes as possible.

Have a wonderful day,

Debbie

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

Thanks for the insight. I will inquire about it and consider taking it up. I have always had an obession with pharmacology since my actual class was a complete disaster. Since then, I have acquired so many textbooks for cheap on the subject that I went on overdrive. Now, thinking about it...I will, in fact do it before the year is out. Does this consist of attending a class? Or is this all on line as it appears? I will look more into the web sites when I get home from work this evening...and I really appreciate your list of items you shared.:spin:

As soon as I settle down, I am doing the same...Actually, I did well in pharmacology due to my extreme curiosity with how meds work within the body...I'm a total nerd, I guess. LOL If I can just hang on...long enough...

I thought RN's had all of those priviledges for learning. I am glad to find this forum.

I was not aware that LPN/LVN's were able to get certifications in anything. Can an LPN become a oncology certified nurse? I had always thought you must have your RN first.

LPNs are employed at the Cancer Facilities in the province of Alberta. We handle carcinogenics.

I don't know about the US.
