Vocational Nursing

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.

As part of their work, LVNs collect samples for testing, perform routine laboratory tests, and record food and fluid intake and output. They clean and monitor medical equipment. Sometimes, they help physicians and registered nurses perform tests and procedures. Some LVNs help to deliver, care for, and feed infants.
