What Students Need to Know About Professional Licensure

Many students attend college to earn a certificate and/or degree that prepares them for a specific field such professional nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), or one of the many other occupations regulated by State and/or other government entities. States and other government entities have established standards of practice for the occupations or professions they have chosen to regulate, and they provide legal permission to practice those professions only to individuals who meet those standards. This is called professional licensure: professions for which people need to meet certain criteria in order to practice in that field.
