Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

The role of a Long-Term Care Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is essential in providing fundamental medical care. This includes tasks such as administering medication, changing bandages, and gathering specimens. Working within a long-term care setting, the LPN delivers nursing care while under the supervision of a registered nurse or medical authority. The Long-Term Care LPN is responsible for observing and communicating any shifts in the patient’s condition to the supervisor. Assisting with bathing, feeding, and dressing, they ensure patients’ health, comfort, and safety. Education-wise, a high school diploma and graduation from an accredited LPN program are typically required, along with state licensure. Specialized certification and/or licensing might be needed for specific roles within this position. The specific years of experience required can vary, and it’s recommended to hold a certification within the field.

Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN)

A Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) operates within hospitals, nursing homes, or medical care facilities, usually under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or physician. Their duties encompass:
