With a specialization in pediatrics and a background in social work, Jennifer is a licensed practical nurse who is currently in practice with Vanderbilt Home Care Services in Nashville, Tennessee. 

“Under the direction of your doctor, our nurses and therapists help you with daily tasks including bathing, dressing, eating, and managing medications. Our caregivers also provide company and emotional support. When you receive care from Vanderbilt Home Care, you can rest assured you are in the hands of highly skilled, compassionate caregivers who put your needs first” as stated on the medical clinic’s website. 

When she was a little girl, Jennifer’s mother, who is also a nurse, put a nurse’s cap on her. From that moment on, she knew that she wanted to enter into the nursing field and help other people every day. With this goal in mind, she went on to earn her nursing degree from the Tennessee College of Applied Technology in 2014. 

A licensed practical nurse (LPN) provides routine care for the sick or injured. They work under the supervision of doctors and registered nurses, performing duties such as taking vital signs, collecting samples, administering medication, ensuring patient comfort, and reporting the status of their patients to the nurses. 

LPNs are generally hired in smaller settings, such as nursing homes, home health environments, and rehabilitation centers. They must be skilled in balancing care for patients and completing practical daily administrative tasks.
