Licensed Practical Nurse Information
August 15th, 2017

Licensed practical nurses provide basic nursing care to patients in various healthcare facilities. They may work in small or large hospitals, privately run clinic, public health settings or within the community. In all settings, licensed practical nurses or LPNs work under the direction of physicians and RNs or registered nurses. Licensed Practical nurses interview patients and record their information, help doctors and RNs to plan and manage patient care, administer injections, monitor patient's health conditions and verify patients' charts are updated regularly. Some LPNs also provide health care services to patients in their homes.

To become a licensed practical nurse, you must complete a diploma or certificate program or a degree from a state recognized and accredited institution. The higher the qualification you complete, the higher your starting salary will be. In addition to obtaining a diploma or degree, all nurses are required to take the NCLEX and any other certification exam for the state they want to work in. Necessary work experience can be obtained by doing an internship, volunteering with a charity organization and shadowing an experienced nurse on the job. You must genuinely care about helping sick people if you wish to pursue a career as a licensed practical nurse.

At the interview for a licensed practical nurse role, your interviewer will ask you various questions to determine whether or not you are a good fit for their organization. Be prepared to tell the interviewer about your work experience, tasks you've performed, what you like about the job and what characteristics you have that makes you an exceptional LPN.
