Licensed practical nurses (LPNs), or licensed vocational nurses (LVNs), care for the sick, injured, convalescent, and disabled under the direction of physicians and more highly trained nurses.

It’s a career that offers opportunities with high demand for qualified nurses in hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, and emergency medical centers, schools, colleges, home health agencies and convalescent homes.

About 28 percent of LVNs worked in hospitals, 26 percent in nursing care facilities, and another 12 percent in offices of physicians.

Others worked for home healthcare services, employment services, community care facilities for the elderly, public and private educational services, outpatient care centers, and Federal, State, and local government agencies; about 1 in 5 worked part time.

It’s also a great first step for those considering further advancement in nursing or the medical profession.
