A hospital is like an organ system in which every organ or department is responsible for a different function which benefits the entire organ system and body as a whole (the hospital). Many people falsely believe that the person that draws your blood, take your vitals before the doctor comes, and gives your flu shot is the nurse. However, that is not the case; traditionally nurses used to be the ones to perform those functions but now there are other health care providers who perform those functions. A phlebotomist may draw your blood and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) may administer your flu shot. An LPN is a health care provider who takes care of patients under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN). The training and requirements for LPN’s vary by state, but in Nebraska you must attend an accredited school for training and pass the NCLEX-PN licensing examination.

LPN training may take anywhere from one to two years to complete. Depending on the state where you live and intend to practice, the requirements for admittance into an LPN program will differ. In Nebraska students must hold a high school diploma or equivalent degree as a prerequisite for entrance into an LPN training course. If you enroll in an LPN program at a college you would be required to take basic college level courses in English, Math, Natural Science, and the Humanities in addition to your LPN training courses. An LPN is trained in taking vitals, bedside manners, CPR, drawing blood, giving injections, and almost anything a registered nurse is trained in. After you have successfully passed the training class you will need to pass the NCLEX-PN test to obtain your LPN certification in Nebraska.

Employment in your chosen field is never guaranteed but according to the Department of Health, careers in health care are growing rapidly. There will always be a need for health care providers because people will always get sick and/or injured. Many hospitals elect to hire LPNs because they are cheaper than RNs so you might have a better chance of gaining employment.

If you are a caring person who wants to help people a career as an LPN may be right for you. As an LPN you do have to be supervised by a doctor or nurse. If for any reason you wish to upgrade to become a Registered Nurse (RN) there are LPN to RN programs available.
