What does a Licensed Practice Nurse do?
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) works with Doctors and Registered Nurses to complete certain tasks. Those can include taking patient vitals, giving medications, taking samples, and many more. The duties of an LPN can sometimes overlap those of a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) but and LPN is more highly trained and are qualified to provide more care. An LPN may also oversee CNA’s in some cases.
