Many health care providers leave work everyday knowing that they have helped many people who were truly in need and that is an excellent feeling to have. Let us take a look at the career path of a Licensed Practical Nurse.

Preparation to Become an LPN

Prior to enrolling in an LPN program in Mississippi, prospective students must have a high school diploma or GED. The next step is to graduate from a state-approved practical nursing program and pass the NCLEX-PN examination. Another requirement for being a successful LPN is to have good interpersonal skills and the ability to work well on a team.

Routine Activities/Work Duties of an LPN

In the course of their daily work LPNs will be asked to measure vital signs, take the pulse and blood pressure of each and every patient, perform routine laboratory testing, perform clerical tasks such as answering phones, updating/keeping medical records up to speed and scheduling appointments. LPNs might also be responsible for collecting blood and other samples for testing.

Future Job Outlook and Average Salary

* Mississippi has an expected growth rate of about 20.8% by year 2016 in this industry
* The average salary for an LPN in Mississippi is about $34,360 depending on where you are practicing

LPN’s have advancement opportunities by way of salary increases or becoming Registered Nurses (RNs). It is extremely important that as an LPN you like people; and one should really consider taking an Interest Exam or Profiler that will label your interests accordingly. If one takes an interest exam you are looking to score highest in social categories, because these types of people have no problem promoting learning and activities that will encourage patients to get better and participate in their recovery. Those with realistic interests are people that are hands-on and enjoy problem solving and finding solutions. This is a unique trait to have especially in the healthcare industry.

Becoming an LPN requires dedication on your part. You will usually have to go to school for one to two years, you will be required to work under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or Doctor, and you will be required to complete lots of paperwork and be required to work long shifts.
