LPN Jobs in Washington Terrace, 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.
