Your Role as a Practical Nurse

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) perform a multitude of essential duties under the direction of a Registered Nurse, Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant. LPNs provide basic bedside care, take vital signs such as temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and respirations, and document patient care in electronic health record systems. They provide direct patient care such as wound care, inserting, monitoring, and removing urinary catheters, starting IVs for adult patients, and administering select medications. LPNs closely monitor patients and report adverse reactions to medications and treatments. In addition, LPNs collect samples for testing, perform blood draws and routine laboratory tests, and provide a comfortable environment for patients - listening to their concerns and discussing their medical care.
