A Licensed Practical Nurse, LPN for short, is a type of nurse that is increasingly in demand. They are entrusted with basic medical care responsibilities for patients in hospitals, doctors offices, and medical facilities all over Louisiana.
The duties of a licensed practical nurse in Louisiana are monitoring patients’ health, administering basic nursing care, providing for the basic comfort of the patients, discuss health care with patients and listening to their concerns, reporting patients’ status to registered nurses and doctors, and keeping accurate records on patient health. LPNs are an important, valued, part of the healthcare industry and an industry that is growing.
