Licensed Practical Nurse Duties

A licensed practical nurse, also known as an LPN, is required to perform all of the basic duties that assist a patient upon first entering the hospital or clinic. As an LPN, your primary duties will consist of taking accurate health history notes, searching for patient records and verifying patient health information. Once the patient is in the hospital or doctor’s office assigned room, the LPN is responsible for taking their temperature, assisting them with dressing or bathing, preparing patients for a medical procedure and monitoring a catheter or other input devices. These essential nursing duties are important for the overall health and well-being of the patient.

LPN Education Requirements

In order to become a licensed practical nurse, you must complete one year of nursing education as well as perform hands-on internships at hospitals or in nursing homes. During the course of your one-year training, you will learn how to prepare for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing, which you are required to pass in order to start a career as a licensed practical nurse. Upon completion of the program, you will be qualified to take both a state exam and the NCLEX-PN. You must pass both tests in order to become qualified as a LPN. On top of that, you must know how to have a compassionate heart and a steady hand, as caring for patients is your primary goal in this career.

Licensed Practical Nurse Job Market

Between now and 2024, there is a projected 16% growth in employment, which covers all areas of nursing. With the Baby Boomer generation increasing the number of patients using Medicare, there is a growing demand for LPN nurses. Hospitals, clinics and nursing homes are looking for LPNs that can work well with people, have patience for older patients and are great communicators.
