Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled under the direction of physicians and registered nurses. The nature of the direction and supervision required varies by State and job setting.
LVNs care for patients in many ways. Often, they provide basic bedside care. Many LVNs measure and record patients’ vital signs such as height, weight, temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and respiration. They also prepare and give injections, enemas, and other medications, monitor catheters and dress wounds. To help keep patients comfortable, they assist with bathing, dressing, and personal hygiene, moving in bed, standing and walking. They might also feed patients who need help eating. Experienced LVNs may supervise nursing assistants and aides.
