Here you can find state approved nursing schools which are currently providing LPN programs. These programs get reviewed by state board of nursing from time to time and if they are found missing something from the set of regulation laid out by state BON, they may get warning and given some time to correct what’s missing. If they cannot meet the requirements, their approval will be withdrawn. What you will find here is a list of community colleges, private colleges and other healthcare institutions which are currently approved by their respective state BON to provide LPN program as of January 2012. We try to update this list from time to time but please double check with your state nursing board to make sure school’s approval status.
