A Note On Becoming an LPN/RN in New York

Don’t let friends, colleagues or yourself lose money, time or energy by applying to a fraudulent nursing school. Before a tuition payment is processed, make certain that the program is recognized by the State Education Department. Lists of approved LPN and RN programs can be found on this site. Avoid a costly mistake and make sure your educational institution is an approved program of nursing study before you enroll.

If you seek to meet the education requirement for an RN or LPN license with a program youcompleted outside the United States, your educational credentials must be verified by an independent credentials verification organization. See “Verifying Education Credentials From Non-U.S. Programs” for further instructions.
