Hi Vernon. Interesting question. I have a granddaughter considering nursing so just copied it to Google and searched. Found a lot of sites that seem to offer Free LPN Classes. That to me is a red flag, so I'd direct your question specifically to your state Nurses Association. (New York, right? It would be this: https://www.nysna.org) There may well be free LPN training that is widely recognized and accepted. But be careful, lotta folks only want your money even for the 'free' stuff. Ask the nurses association. Good luck.
