In general, becoming a licensed practical nurse or LPN in the State of Kansas requires the completion of the Practical Nursing program as well as passing the NCLEX-PN. There are over 22 campuses in this state and so choosing the best one to enroll in could be a tad more difficult. This is why it is important to do your own research before enrolling in any particular nursing school. 

An LPN in Kansas can work in different health care settings such as doctor’s offices, hospitals, home health care, assisted living facilities, Alzheimer’s units, and other related facilities. They are often supervised by RNs or licensed physicians. An LPN can advance his career and salary by completing certifications or by completing the LPN to RN or the BSN program.

Kansas Department of Labor has stated that the median yearly salary for an LPN in the state is about $35,000. This amount varies depending on the LPN’s location, experience and facility type.
