A Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) is a healthcare professional who combines nursing skills, knowledge, and judgment to provide nursing care in various sectors of healthcare. The autonomy of the RPN is influenced by the complexity of the client’s condition. RPNs have greater autonomy when caring for a client with less-complex conditions. As client complexity increases, there is a corresponding increase in the need for RPNs to consult with RNs.
