Washington LPN Employment and Jobs Outlook
To become an LPN in Washington, individuals must be complete a state-approved nursing program. Once that is complete, he or she must sit and pass the NCLEX-PN exam—the required state-test to show proficiency.
In order to receive state licensure, the applicant must submit an application to the state of Washington Department of Health, including:
- Official transcript from state-approved nursing program
- Proof of passing score of the NCLEX exam
- Submit fingerprints for a FBI background check
- Complete a personal information statement that includes information about physical and mental health status, lack of impairment due to chemical dependency/substance abuse, felony convictions, disciplinary actions, and other areas
- Completion of 7 hours of required HIV/AIDS training
Washington LPNs must renew their license every year on or before their birthday. A continuing competency program is in place requiring 531 practice hours and 45 continuing education hours every three years.
NCLEX Exam Information
Before a practical nursing program graduate can receive licensure, they must first sit for and pass the NCLEX-PN examination. Your LPN program coursework should adequately prepare you for this important exam. To read more about the NCLEX-PN exam, please visit our overview page here. In addition, our NCLEX-PN practice test is available to help students prepare and study.
LPN Reciprocity and eNLC
Washington is not a state that has opted in to the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC), so those rules do not apply. LPNs who have a valid license in another state can apply for licensure in Washington by endorsement by submitting proof of current licensure and having passed the NCLEX.
In addition, applicants must also submit:
- Fingerprints submitted digitally to the state
- Authorization for release of FBI information for criminal background check
Washington also allows foreign applicants with LPN equivalent background to apply for licensure in the state. In order to do so, applicants must submit their transcripts for a course by course evaluation with a state-approved evaluation service, pass an English language proficiency exam, complete a Personal Vocational Relationship Course online, submit fingerprints for a background check and pass the NCLEX exam.
