LPN Program Details
Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are collaborative members of the health care team, working under the supervision of RNs and physicians. They provide direct patient care by assisting with activities of daily living, giving medications in various ways including injections and IVs, and performing many other cares necessary for patient treatment. LPNs work in many settings that provide a number of scheduling options, such as hospitals, long-term care, clinics, home healthcare, government and private facilities. Schedules may include evening, night and weekend shifts due to the nature of the cares provided. LPNs are an essential part of the health care team and have a positive influence in the lives of clients.
