LVNs can connect with jobs in a range of healthcare work environments, including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, long-term care centers, assisted living residences, home healthcare, and more.

LVN Responsibilities:

Although specific job duties will vary depending on your work location, the responsibilities of an LVN in any healthcare setting generally include the following:

  • Patient Care: Administering medications, dressing wounds, and providing basic patient care, such as helping with bathing, grooming, and feeding
  • Vital Sign Monitoring: Monitoring and recording patients' vital signs, including temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure, and communicating any significant changes to the rest of the healthcare team
  • Assistance with Procedures: Assisting physicians and registered nurses with procedures such as extracting blood samples, inserting catheters, and administering injections
  • Documentation: Keeping accurate and detailed records of patients' medical histories and treatments
  • Patient Education: Educating patients and their families about various health conditions, medications, and homecare techniques
  • Professional Collaboration: Working closely with physicians, registered nurses, and healthcare professionals of other disciplines to develop and implement patient care plans
  • Monitoring Equipment: Ensuring that medical equipment is in proper working condition and reporting any malfunctioning equipment

Rainier Bansil, LPN
''As a LPN, I've found working with NURSA to have its pros and cons. One of the standout positives is the flexibility offered—having the option to receive same-day pay and select shifts through the app is incredibly convenient.I have been on with NURSA since the 2021. I love how the company works with Nurses, and CNAs. Its great and there was a lot of money to be made.''
