Why Nursing?

Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN)

is a nursing professional who can perform a wide array of medical services under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or Medical Doctor. LPN’s can work in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, resident care facilities, clinics and private homes. LPN’s can also work in specialized areas of healthcare such as oncology, pediatrics, gynecology, surgery, family medicine, podiatry, etc. Routine nursing tasks performed by LPN’s include basic patient care, monitoring patients, administering medications and injections, charting changes in condition, collecting lab specimens and dressing changes. LPN’s supervise nursing assistants and are usually the liaison between the patient and other healthcare members such as therapists, dietitians and physicians.

Career Outlook

Currently there is a strong need for Licensed Practical Nurses and it is only going to grow in the years to come. According to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employment of LPNs is expected to grow by 21 percent between 2008 and 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations, in response to the long-term care needs of an increasing elderly population and the general increase in demand for healthcare services.” In addition, the average annual salary for an LPN is $39,000, with the median salary ranging from $33,000-$46,000.
