Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs)

Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled under the direction of physicians and registered nurses.  

Most LVNs are generalists and will work in any area of healthcare. However, some work in a specialized setting, such as a nursing home, a doctor's office, or in home healthcare. LVNs in nursing care facilities help to evaluate residents' needs, develop care plans, and supervise the care provided by nursing aides. In doctors' offices and clinics, they may be responsible for making appointments, keeping records, and performing other clerical duties. LVNs who work in home healthcare may prepare meals and teach family members simple nursing tasks.
