Licensed Vocational/Practical Nurses
Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) perform the same duties, and are, essentially, synonyms for the same job function. Some LVNs and LPNs continue advancement to become RNs, APNs, and even Nurse Executives. This is an excellent entry into the respected field of professional nursing.
We think that the area of nursing management is becoming one of the most important in the health care industry, since nurses are the professionals responsible for providing most of the day-to-day care of an aging population.
