Job Description:

LPN-Licensed Practical Nurses NeededA Direct Hire PositionLicensed Practical Nurse Job DescriptionLPNs carry out nursing tasks that are more complex than those that nurse's aides complete but less complex than the--duties of a--registered nurse. LPNs monitor the health of patients and look for signs that their health is deteriorating or improving. They check vital signs and watch for changes in monitor readings.Licensed Practical Nurses perform basic nursing functions--like changing bandages and wound dressings. They comfort patients and make sure basic needs such as food and fluid intake are in order. Licensed practical nurses may also administer medications in some settings depending on institutional and state standards.Work EnvironmentLPNs work in a variety of healthcare environments. They serve in settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, health clinics, and private physician practices. Some also provide healthcare services at peoples' homes. Nurses have to be able to stand on their feet for most of the day. They may need to lift or move patients as well.Work ScheduleSome LPNs work part-time, although most work full-time. Many works at least some nights, weekends, and holidays. Sometimes, shifts last longer than eight hours but may entail a shorter work week.LPN-Licensed Practical Nurse Licensed Practical Nurse Requirements Requirements for LPNs vary from state to state. Generally, LPNs must complete a certificate or diploma program; typically these take about one to two years to complete. They can complete these programs at colleges, technical schools, and some hospitals. LPNs also have to complete a national licensure examination. Some LPNs may also choose to become certified in certain specialities, such as IV therapy, nephrology, or hospice care. Licensed Practical Nurse Skills LPNs require a variety of--hard and soft skills. While required LPN skills vary based on the specific job, there are a number of skills expected of most LPNs. They should be compassionate towards patients--and have strong--communication--skills. They have to be very patient--and be able to deal with the stress of caring for sick and injured people. They should also be detail oriented: they must keep track of their multiple patients' medications, vital signs, and general well-being.
