Licensed practical nurses (LPNs), provide routine care for the sick or injured. They work in conjunction with registered nurses (RNs) to adhere to a care plan for each patient. However, while most RNs work in hospitals, LPNs are generally hired in smaller settings, such as nursing homes, home health environments, and rehabilitation centers.

LPNs are responsible for a range of patient care and administrative tasks, including: monitoring basic patient health such as vital signs and overall condition; changing dressings or inserting catheters; taking patient histories and maintaining documentation; assisting with tests or procedures; providing personal care, such as helping with bathing and toileting; as well as consulting with RNs on care plans.
