Hawaii Nursing Schools

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are an essential part of the healthcare system responsible for providing patients with basic health care. In order to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), students will have to complete certain educational and licensure requirements. The first step of the process is completing your high school diploma and applying to an LPN program in a community college or a vocational college. Once you have completed the training program, you will have to pass the NCLEX-PN exam. After taking the exam, the results would be available within 48 hours. If you clear the exam, the State Board of Nursing will mail you your license.

National Estimates for Registered Nurses in Hawaii

(1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.

(2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a “year-round, full-time” hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

(9) The location quotient is the ratio of the area concentration of occupational employment to the national average concentration. A location quotient greater than one indicates the occupation has a higher share of employment than average, and a location quotient less than one indicates the occupation is less prevalent in the area than average.
