LPN Programs in Idaho

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) in Idaho work under the supervision of physicians and registered nurses in a variety of health care settings from hospitals and nursing homes to physician offices and patient's homes. To become a LPN in Idaho you will need to successfully complete a practical nursing (PN) program that has been approved by the Idaho State Board of Nursing. Upon successful completion of a practical nursing program, graduates will be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN national licensing exam and after successfully passing the exam will be able to apply for licensure in the state of Idaho.

PN program courses cover math, medical terminology, pharmacology, standard nursing skills and related topics. Clinical site requirements expose the student to hands on patient care where students learn practical nursing skills including administration of some medication, operation of medical equipment and related skills. Once you select and contact a program you will be able to learn more about what to expect from the course work and clinical site experiences.
