The practical nurse (also called vocational nurse or LVN) works under direct supervision of a doctor or Registered Nurse. LPNs daily job duties include maintaining and updating medical records, observing patient conditions, taking vital signs, establishing IV lines to deliver fluids and administering medications. Practical nurses deal directly with patients and provide a large majority of the direct patient care in our current healthcare system. LPNs must work cooperatively within a team of healthcare professionals to deliver the best possible patient experience. Practical nurses can find employment in private medical offices, healthcare clinics, assisted living centers, nursing facilities, home health care, hospitals, convalescent homes or research facilities. Hospitals in Overland Park are the largest employer of LPNs by sheer volume.
