  • about 4 to 6 weeks after you take the board test.....I actually found out pretty early had a friend who gave me the license web address and I was able to look mine up, and several classmates who couldnt wait.....
    I assume you have taken the proper nursing classes and graduated from your program,nursing pin and all that.....

  • It's like a year program but in most places it's a waste of time because most places it is hard to even find a job as an LPN.

  • Most programs are about a year long, but the previous poster is right - you'll have a hard time finding a job. You'll be lucky to get work in a nursing home. Hell, I'm an associate degree RN with 18 years of experience and I'm having to go back for my bachelor's degree if I want to be able to go anywhere but where I'm already at.
