LPN Jobs in Lake Havasu City, AZ

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)

Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) are an essential part of a medical facility's nursing team. They perform basic patient care, monitor patients' conditions, collect data from physicians and report this information to registered nurses and give patients their medications as directed by the physician or nurse practitioner. LPNs work with people suffering from a variety of diseases, ranging from the common cold to potentially life-threatening traumas. LPNs also can work in the community providing preventative healthcare screenings and teaching patients about wellness.

LPNs work as part of a healthcare team under the direction of registered nurses (RNs) and physicians to provide basic medical care to patients. LPN training takes around 12 to 16 months. LPNs may receive additional training in order to work in a specialty area, such as long-term care or pediatrics. LPNs must be licensed by the state in which they wish to practice. LPNs are required to renew their licenses every two years. LPNs should pass a criminal background check and have no felony convictions on their records before receiving a license from the state. LPNs must complete continuing education courses every two years in order to maintain their licenses.

Long-term care facilities often require that LPNs complete additional training so they can work with dementia patients or bedridden individuals. LPN salaries range widely based on location, facility and experience.

About Lake Havasu City

Lake Havasu City is a city in Mojave County, Arizona, United States. At the 2010 census, the city's population was 52,527. It is served by Lake Havasu City Airport. Lake Havasu City is geographically isolated from other cities in Mojave County and is the southernmost community in Las Vegas-Henderson, Nevada-Arizona, CSA.

The London Bridge spans a narrow passage from Lake Havasu (part of the Colorado River) to Thompson Bay (also on the river). To attract tourists and potential home buyers, McCulloch bought the bridge from the City of London for $2.5 million when it was replaced in 1968. Under a contract with Sundt Construction of Tucson, Arizona, the bridge was dismantled and the marked stones shipped to Lake Havasu and reassembled by Sundt for an additional $7 million. Construction took three years.

McCulloch gave London an acre of land in the town of Lake Havasu. When the city of Lake Havasu wanted to use the land for a visitor center, London leased it out to rent a Hopi kachina figure.

Since its opening on October 5, 1971, the London Bridge has become Arizona's second-largest tourist attraction after the Grand Canyon. In 2017, a panel of experts partnered with 10Best.com USA Today to select London Bridge as one of the first 20 nominees for Arizona's Top Landmark Award.

Lake Havasu City is a place of active events for a wide range of people. During the spring months, college students join the community on spring break. In 1995, Lake Havasu City appeared during MTV's "Spring Break" feature. Attendance during spring break has declined in recent years as the city refuses to issue permits to large party organizers.

For boaters, March to September are the best months on Lake Havasu. The city also hosts final international jet ski competitions, numerous professional fishing tournaments, individual boat races, Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnic Convention, Havasu 95 Speedway, the annual Chilln-n-Swilln Benevolent Beer Festival, the Havasu Triathlon, and the Havasu Balloon Festival and Fair. During the winter months, retirees from colder parts of the country and Canada join the community. Several events take place on McCulloch Boulevard during this time. Typically the second weekend in February, McCulloch Boulevard hosts the Winterfest, an annual event that brings thousands of visitors and residents over two days to enjoy food, activities, entertainment, and groceries from over 200 vendors from across the United States.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city has a total area of ​​43.1 square miles (112 square kilometers), of which 43.0 square miles (111 square kilometers) is land and 0.04 square miles (0.10 square kilometers) (0.07% is water).
