LPN Job Description

Collecting samples, taking vital signs, and administering medication are the primary responsibilities of an LPN. LPNs must also ensure patient comfort – helping them eat, dress, bathe, and giving them the quality care they need.

As an LPN, you will work closely with RNs and physicians to maintain clear communication about the status of a patient’s recovery and aid them in keeping detailed records. Additionally, you must work with the patient’s families and understand procedures to care for sick relatives.

Becoming an LPN or LVN can open up many career opportunities for you. However, you’ll need to complete a program and get certified.
