Licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) are nurses who perform basic patient care tasks and help keep patients comfortable. They work under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs) and other doctors.

Being an LVN is not always easy, often the recognition given to an LVN is less, and the opinions of an LVN may seem to be worth less than those of a Registered Nurse (RN). LVNs who pick up per diem jobs in Houston also work alongside certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and other healthcare professionals.

LPNs Earn Good Money and Have a Rewarding Career in Houston

Licensed Vocational Nurses have many challenges and opportunities in the nursing field, but it is a career path that can be very rewarding, one that many people would not be able to do. Some of the challenges of being an LVN are that the salary is lower, it is physically demanding, the scope of practice is more limited, and the shifts can be very demanding. The work an LVN faces requires a great deal of patience and dedication, a great deal of personal discipline as well as the ability to put the needs of others before one's own. Everything an LVN does is in the best interest of the patients. In everyday medical practice, the most demanding and exhausting work comes from an LVN, which is why they should be held in high esteem.

Whether offering primary care in a hospital, a nursing home, a long-term care facility, bringing health to a patient's home, or in a physician’s office, an LVN will need the best conditions for working and living, so that he/she can adapt to the pace of life involved in his/her work.

One of the conditions for achieving the objectives of an LVN is to find the perfect place to work. There are many workplaces awaiting to recruit new LVNs, and one of the 5 states that have the highest employment level for Licensed Practical and Licensed Vocational Nurses in Texas. Also, Houston is the first among U.S. cities where paychecks stretch the furthest, being the average salary for an LVN in Houston is $51,850 (mean annual wage), or $24.93 (per hour). There are also a lot of opportunities for growth in Houston, being the greater Houston area is home to some of the major healthcare centers and hospitals. Houston is a city with 21 renowned US hospitals, and also the country’s No. 1 cancer hospital. Some of the major hospitals are:
