Practical nurse training includes classroom study and hands-on clinical skills practice. Some institutions in Kentucky offer online LPN programs that partner with local hospitals or health care centers for the practical portion of the training. There are Associates degree courses and diploma programs available for LPN certification. Courses can be found at local colleges, universities, hospitals, vocational schools and private educational institutions in Paducah. As long as the program is approved by the Kentucky State Board of Nursing it should provide the necessary education to prepare the student for the NCLEX-PN exam and eventually their career as a practical nurse. Typical coursework and prerequisites include Pharmacology, Human Anatomy, Physiology, Intro to Nursing, Basic Mathematics and English Composition. Prospective students should perform their due diligence by researching the program carefully before enrolling.

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 Paducah are the largest employer of LPNs by sheer volume.
