Looking for ways to receive free LPN training can be as simple as thinking of every group for which you and your parents – if you are still a dependent are a member of. A combination of scholarships could certainly reduce your tuition especially if you are already receiving other forms of financial aid. Consider any work unions for which you or your parents are members of at the current time. Are there any community based groups for which you hold a membership? Is anyone in your immediately family a member of other professional groups and organizations? You would be surprised at the number of scholarship options available to you if you start looking just at your memberships and that of your parents and in some cases even grandparents.
Do not forget to contact local healthcare providers if you are hoping to become an LPN. Some of these providers hire individuals before they are licensed. The individuals start out in non-nursing roles until they become licensed. Some employers will help to pay for your education in exchange for a term of work service once you become fully licensed. Take your time to look for financing options so that you can become a practical nurse.
