LPN Jobs in South Ogden, UT

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.

South Ogden's proximity to Hill Air Force Base and the Ogden Arsenal led to a real estate boom in the 1940s. The city's largest growth occurred in the 1950s when it grew by 150%. In connection with this neoplasm, a new municipal building was built. The building also housed a fire station and a new 1953 fire engine was purchased.

Washington Boulevard was widened to four lanes south of 40th Street. Businesses, schools, churches, fire and police departments, sewer and water networks continued to grow or expand to serve the growing population. The new town hall was opened on December 8, 1983.

Today, South Ogden has a comfortable balance of residential and commercial areas. Scattered throughout the city are several small shopping centers, shops, cinemas, medical and dental clinics.
