Licensed Vocational Nurse By Nancy Kimmel Licensed Practical Nurses are very much in demand in lieu of America39s nursing shortage The program for becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse is approximately one year or less Financial aid is available for this training program as well as many other sources of funding Licensed Vocational NursesLPN39s make only a few dollars less than Registered Nurses This is perhaps due to their scope of practice is less inclusive than that of Registered Nurses By 1994 LPNs earned over 14 per hour on average There was a short decline in wages of not only LPNs but for RN39s as well during the years between 1994 and 19981 In the year 2001 LPNs were making between 1778 and 2115 In 2007 a graduate RN who had passed their state boards made approximately 2250 per hour Licensed practical nurses held about 749000 jobs in 2006 About 26 percent of LPNs worked in hospitals 26 percent in nursing care facilities and another 12 percent in offices of physicians Others worked for home health care services employment services residential care facilities community care facilities for the elderly outpatient care centers and Federal State and local government agencies About 19 percent worked part time 2 The scope of practice for LPNs vary from state to state as mandated by the State Board of Nursing In general the LPN is able to feed and bathe the patient empty Foleys Jpegs colostomy bags take a patient39s blood pressure temperature orally or rectally exercise patient via assisting patient with walking pass

IVPush hang IV bags give massages and administer enemas LPNs can monitor patients for untoward reactions to medications or treatments and report findings to the RN The RN is then responsible for follow up and to reassessing the patient The LPN works under the guidance and supervision of the RN The RN39s license is jeopardized if the LPN does more than their job description if given instructions to do so by the RN The LPN can help with regard to patient teaching such as dietary suggestions for diabetics and importance of tight glycemic control In most cases LPNs find employment in nursing homes medical clinics doctors offices and hospitals LPNs are required to pass a state licensing exam NCLEXPM upon graduation from Licensed Identitv Crawler Online Investigations Get anything on anybody When in doubt check him out These are the tools used by licensed private investigators P 1 age Presented by Daniel Toriola I Practical Nursing Program2 A high school diploma as well as a nursing entrance test is required to gain admittance into the program In 2006 there were over 1500 Stateapproved LPN training programs in the US In times past nursing programs were offered directly through hospitals This type of practice has been replaced by individual nursing schools LPN curriculum requires that the student review learn be tested upon and apply critical thinking in an actual heath care settings Courses include anatomy and physiology medication calculation pediatric nursing maternity nursing medical surgical nursing nutrition psychiatric nursing and CPR Further education is encouraged for graduate LPNsLVNs Hospitals nursing homes and sometimes medical clinics will often pay for furthering the education of an LPNLVN to becoming an RN In many cases it is much easier for an LPNLVN to obtain their Registered Nursing Degree This is in part due to their prior patient care experience and the fact that many Registered Nursing Programs require that LPNsLVNs attend a one year program to complete their RN Degree This is the road that many LPNLVNs take They get their LVNLPN and then go for their RN Degree while they are already working in the field The NET

We Are A Licensed Dealer P 2 age I Presented by Daniel Toriola I LPN and LDN Nurse Entrance Test By Dr Nancy Kimmel Do Licensed Practical Nurses have to take an entrance test for nursing school The answer is yes Many Licensed Practical Nursing Schools require their prospective nursing students to take a general knowledge test prior to admission This test is comprised of questions covering math and reading comprehension This test is sometimes a stumbling block for students who decide to take the test without properly preparing themselves On the Internet prospective Licensed Practical Nursing students can find the tutorials that they will need to help them to pass the nursing entrance test The profession of nursing is seeing a surge in the amount of people that are seeking to become a nurse There is a high demand for Licensed Practical Nurses as well as Registered Nurses Texas is facing an unprecedented nursing shortage where the gap between supply and demand grows wider each year for the coming decade 1 The Licensed Practical Nursing Test is just as challenging as the Registered Nurse Entrance Test There are resources which provide the necessary preparation for the Licensed Practical Nurse Test for each Licensed Practical Nursing School across the country Prospective Licensed Practical Nursing students do not always know where to turn to find the materials to achieve a passing score on the Nursing Entrance Test Online materials are available for both tests and much more The initial entrance test is the first hurdle that prospective LPNsLDN39s must maneuver through If this test is completed with a high score then the student goes on to becoming a Licensed Degree Nurse It is suggested when using online tests and tutorials to begin with the first of the tests in each section Since each test increases in level of difficulty and reading comprehension it behooves the student to start at the beginning The student should begin testing with the untimed option Using the timed option on material that is foreign or new will only make the student feel inadequate It is much better to use the untimed option so that the problems can be worked through at leisure and the answers and explanations are thoroughly understood Prospective Licensed Practical and Licensed Degree Nurses are encouraged to take advantage of all of the resources offered as they will be tested on similar knowledge once in the program Just as there is a need for Registered Nurses there is also a need for Licensed Practical Nurses Licensed Practical Nurses can find employment readily in hospitals homecare and medical office settings Although the scope of practice is different from state to state the Licensed Practical Nurse will always be under the auspices of the Registered Nurse and physician The job description of the Licensed Practical Nurse includes taking patients vital signs attending to wound care superficial to first degree decubitus ulcers and two day post operative wound care assisting patient with self care emptying foley catheters passing medication they cannot give VPush medication bathing patient assisting in post operative exercise and or walking the patient and engaging in reporting off to the Registered Nurse While the scope of practice is limited for an Licensed Practical Nurse it is interesting to note that the salary difference is within five to seven dollars less than a Registered Nurse Licensed Practical Nurses are entitled to the same benefits of tuition reimbursement as Registered Nurses Becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse or Licensed Degree Nurse is not as demanding a becoming a Registered Nurse and the pay is not that much different It is no wonder that more and more people are considering a career as a Licensed Practical Nurse
