In today’s healthcare system, all levels of nurses have significant responsibility. The role of licensed practical nurse (LPN) has certainly increased in prominence in recent years. In the past, LPNs were strictly focused on providing basic care for patients. However, LPNs today must wear many hats. These include providing care for patients, creating individualized plans for patient recovery, counseling and educating patients on healthy living, providing emotional support for patients and their families, and performing many other vital tasks.

To become a licensed practical nurse, you can pursue either a certificate program that only takes 12 to 18 months to complete or a two-year associate’s degree program. The more popular option is the certificate program, which is available at more than 25 schools in the state of Georgia including Chattahoochee Technical College and Southwest Georgia Technical College.
