Abstract:The research indicated it is important for nurse educators and administrators to address perceived barriers of LPNs who wish to continue their education and to strengthen factors that are perceived as facilitating the transition. The following recommendations were offered: flexible work, clinical, and class schedules, acknowledging LPNs considering returning to school, offering on-site childcare facilities, discussing the perception of barriers and facilitators, classes and clinicals located in or close to work sites, and curriculum tailored to grant credit for previous LPN education, allow for testing out of courses, and accelerate programs for LPNs.
