Becoming an LPN in Michigan
In the state of Michigan, nurses are changing the workplace—they’re making sure that there is ample support for patients and standards for practice, education, and research. A prediction made by The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that Michigan may see an increase of as much as 6% in additional jobs per year for licensed practical nurses (LPN) by 2024. Individuals seeking to become part of this ever-growing industry, can become an LPN in the state by meeting educational requirements and applying for a Michigan LPN license. Out-of-state nurses can apply for a license by endorsement.
