Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)


Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled under the direction of physicians and registered nurses. The nature of the direction and supervision required varies by State and job setting. LPNs are generalists and work in a variety of health care settings. They are often found working under the supervision of physicians in clinics, long-term care, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, or in home health care.

LPNs care for clients in many ways. Often, they provide basic bedside care; they assist with bathing, dressing, and personal hygiene, moving in bed, range of motion, and walking. They also feed or assist with feeding clients who need help eating. Prepare and give medications/injections and enemas, monitor catheters, dress wounds. Sometimes, assist physicians and registered nurses perform tests and procedure. Monitor their patients and report adverse reactions to medications or treatments. LPNs gather information from patients, including their health history and how they are currently feeling. They share information with registered nurses and doctors to help determine the best course of care for a patient. LPNs often teach family members how to care for a relative or teach patients about good health habits.

In the LPN program the student will take information learned and apply, critical think, analyze, and use deductive reasons to provide solutions and to answer test questions. The LPN student must have an understanding of the material to apply that knowledge into practice and testing. Math is essential in order to calculate medication dosage correctly and competently for the safety and well-being of their clients.

Attendance, accountability, responsibility, professionalism, behavior/attitude, participation, and teamwork is essential for student success in the LPN program.
