Duties and Responsibilities:
The LPN’s job is to provide basic health jobs such as taking weight, height, temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and respiratory rate. They must work under the supervision of a registered nurse or doctor in nursing care facilities, physician offices, community care facilities for seniors, private and public hospitals, and home health care services. LPN can do as much as a nurse can but cant assist in surgical procedures nor they can give anesthesia to patients.
To become a LPN you must obtain an Associate’s degree from a community college, technical school, or vocational school in Biology, pharmacy and nursing.
I actually have thought of becoming a nurse but if i were to pursue a career as a nurse, i would want to become a registered nurse not a LPN because for one they get pad more and your job involves higher power and better privileges.
