A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is a vital member of a high performance healthcare team. LPNs practice under the supervision of Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Doctors and several other health care professionals. These clinicians rely on the LPN to help deliver appropriate, timely and compassionate care.
LPNs may work in a variety of different settings to include; nursing homes, private physician practices, hospitals, home care etc. LPNs may have variance in their schedules providing for increased flexibility in their home life depending on their chosen place of employment.
Duties of a LPN may include:
LPNs are licensed by the state in which they practice. To obtain an LPN license, the state may require background checks and proof of education. Every state administers the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCLEX-PN) exam, which candidates must pass to obtain their license. Licenses are then renewed periodically dependent on the state one practices in.
Fulfillment of the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the Practical Nursing program. All candidates who meet admission requirements will be considered for acceptance. The number of students accepted into the program is limited due to available clinical sites.
**Any type of criminal background may jeopardize your ability to be licensed as a nurse.
