If you're looking to become an LVN, License Vocational Nurse and are looking for ways to prepare for school, I'm going to try to help you through that. I'm Dan Carlson. I'm a nurse and this is how to prepare for an LVN nursing course. First thing you're going to need is a high school diploma or if you don't have a high school diploma, you'll need a GED. Then what you need to do is take the next step and move up to a community college and find a community college in local near you so you can, you know, get to school easier; so it's not a real travel 'cause there's going to be a lot of school work with this. But, find a community college that's good for you and enroll in that. You might have to be stuck in a little waiting period as it is sometimes hard to get into a nursing program. But, get into the community college. You'll need to take First Aid and CPR but usually that will go through with your college course as well. Some courses may tell you to do that beforehand. Another thing is you may need to get vaccinations. But again, that will more than likely come in with your college program. A lot of things like studying Anatomy and Physiology are important; try to get a college English course, if it all possible; that should be help. Anything in Science that should help a little bit. But basically Anatomy and Physiology and English are the main two goals. And from where you go from there is on to the licensing with your local, with the state that you'll be working in and they'll walk you through that with your college course as well. I'm Dan Carlson. Thank you very much.
