LPN Jobs in Orem, UT

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)

Licensed practical nurses provide basic care to patients in a variety of healthcare facilities. They can collect data from physicians and report this information to registered nurses. In addition, they can give medications as directed by a physician or nurse practitioner. LPNs may work with patients who have a variety of medical conditions, ranging from common colds to potentially life-threatening injuries. They also can work in the community providing preventative healthcare screenings and teaching patients about wellness.

LPN programs may be available at vocational or technical schools. LPN training typically takes around 12 to 16 months. Some LPNs may receive additional training in order to work in a specialty area, such as long-term care or pediatrics, while others focus on a specific patient population. LPNs must be licensed by the state in which they wish to practice, and they 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. Many states also require LPNs to complete continuing education courses every two years in order to maintain their licenses.

Registered nurses who work in long-term care may need additional training to care for patients with dementia or those who are bedridden. LPN salaries vary widely depending on the location, facility and level of experience.

After completing LPN training programs, LPNs must become licensed in the state where they wish to practice. To be licensed, the LPN must pass the National Council Licensure Examination – PN (NCLEX-PN). The license is renewable every two years. The LPN may need additional training to work with certain types of patients, such as children, the elderly or individuals with mental disabilities.
