Missouri LPN School

Missouri LPN Programs

There are a ton of Missouri LPN schools that offer practical nursing programs, and many more that cater to people with specific needs or educational goals. It should be easy to find one that suits what you want- and even easier in the next few years.

Missouri is one of several states currently working to adopt a multi-state compact making it easier for LPN's and other allied health professionals to work, live, and train, across state borders. If and when this compact passes, you’ll find your employment and educational opportunities massively expand.

Standard Practical Nursing curriculums generally consist of equal measures of class time and clinical practice. You’ll learn about basic medical subjects- human anatomy, nutrition, first aid- and more complex topics, such as caring for infants and the elderly, and helping people with chronic illnesses or pain. It generally does not take very long to start getting out of the classroom and into the hospital or clinic, where you’ll probably work under the direction of experiences LPN/RN or other healthcare professional.

LPN Continuing Education in Missouri

The Missouri Board of Nursing does not currently assign continuing education or make it a requirement of licensure renewal, as many states do. While this may change in the future, as the trend is towards mandated continuing education requirements, there does not appear to be any attempt to change this in Missouri’s future.

Many hospitals and employers require continuing education, however, in states that don't require it. This generally takes the form of 6 to 10 contact hours, or 50 minute study sessions, a year, given by a governmental body or nursing organization that is active and recognized on the national level.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring Licensed Practical Nurses in Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield and Independence, Missouri may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the St. Johns Mercy Medical Center, St. Anthony’s Medical Center, Barnes Jewish Hospital and Missouri Baptist Medical Center.
