LVN Jobs

Licensed Vocational Nursing Overview


Licensed Vocational Nursing jobs involve checking in on patients who have been hospitalized for one reason or another, but they can be entrusted with a variety of responsibilities in the medical environment. While patient care is a primary responsibility, registered nurses regularly depend on LVNs to perform a number of tasks associated with more advanced levels of care. Licensed vocational nursing on this level entails taking regular vital signs, distributing and administering oral and injectable medications, providing wound care, and performing routine lab testing. LVNs can work in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, doctor's offices, assisted living facilities and home health care. The schedule of a licensed vocational nurse, whether day or night shift, will depend on the employer's needs.

Licensed Vocational Nurse Education Requirements


A high school diploma and a certificate from an accredited nursing program are the minimum requirements for most licensed vocational nurse jobs. You will also be required to pass a licensing examination. You need advanced reading and math skills gained in high school in order to calculate medication dosages and read doctor's orders. Because you'll be taking care of multiple patients at a time, you should be detail-oriented and have strong organizational skills. Although it typically isn't required that you have previous experience in the medical field, you should excel at communicating with others, and a working knowledge of dealing with difficult patients is extremely useful for LVN Jobs. Similar positions include Hospital Nurse Practitioner jobs.

Licensed Vocational Nurse Job Market


The outlook for new LVNs entering the workforce is positive. According to statistics, the demand for licensed vocational nurses is estimated to increase by 25 percent over the next 10 years. In 2012, there were an estimated 738,400 jobs across all 50 states.

Licensed Vocational Nurse Salary


The median salary for licensed vocational nursing jobs is $42,400 in the United States. Nurses who work for larger hospitals tend to out-earn those employed by smaller practices.
