What is a LPN/LVN?

Licensed Practical Nurses and Licensed Vocational Nurses are essentially the same type of nurse only with different job titles. The LVN title is used in California and Texas, while other states use the LPN title. LPNs provide direct care to patients and though they can’t practice independently, they’re considered an invaluable part of the healthcare team. Being an LPN or LVN is a rewarding career path and one that’s projected to grow 9% by 2029 due to increased nursing care needs for an aging population.

What does an LPN/LVN do?

The duties of an LPN/LVN vary based on their work setting and the state in which they work. They must work under the supervision of a registered nurse or doctor, but they sometimes oversee CNAs. No matter the facility, their overall function is to ensure patient comfort and safety. Basic medical duties usually tasked to an LPN/LVN include:

  • Providing essential care, including assisting with activities of daily living

  • Taking and recording vital signs

  • Wound care, including changing dressings

  • Assisting doctors and RNs with exams, tests, and procedures

  • Collecting samples for testing

  • Inserting and changing catheters

  • Listening to patient concerns

  • Reporting patient status and concerns to supervisors

  • Maintaining patient records

Some state regulations also allow LPNs to perform other duties with appropriate training, such as administering medications and starting IV drips. LPNs/LVNs must know the regulations within their state to ensure they understand what they can and can’t do and avoid risking their license.

Where do LPNs/LVNs work?

There are several settings where an LPN/LVN may work, but top employers include nursing and residential care facilities, home healthcare agencies, general medical and surgical hospitals, and physicians’ offices. They may also work at assisted living facilities, continuing care retirement communities, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation centers, or specialty hospitals.

What skills make a good LPN/LVN?

Good LPNs/LVNs excel at basic nursing care and effectively assist patients with an infinite amount of patience, empathy, and compassion. They possess excellent organizational and prioritization skills, which helps them keep track of and complete numerous tasks for multiple patients each shift. Other important qualities of successful LPNs/LVNs include interpersonal and communication skills, teamwork, attention to detail, and remaining calm in stressful situations.

How to become a Travel LPN/LVN

Prospective travel LPN/LVN must first complete an approved practical nursing program that provides a certificate or diploma. These programs are often offered at vocational-technical schools and community colleges and usually take about one year to finish. All states require LPNs to be licensed, so upon graduation, they must pass the NCLEX-PN licensing exam. Once licensed, they can pursue employment to gain clinical experience.

While not required, the National Association for Practical Nurse Education and Service offers post licensure certification in Pharmacology, Long-Term Care, and IV Therapy. Certification can increase job opportunities and earning potential. Some LPNs/LVNs work a few years then further their education to become RNs, while others enjoy spending their entire careers as LPNs.

Bullying, incivility, harassment, and aggressive behavior can be found in many American healthcare workplaces, and nursing can sadly be a profession overrun with toxic behaviors.
