Licensed practical nurses primarily provide routine, day-to-day nursing care. LPN job responsibilities may include helping their patients bathe, dress and eat; go to the bathroom; and get their daily exercise. They change bandages, dressings and catheters, and in some states they can administer medication or IVs. Most importantly, LPNs monitor and assess their patients’ condition everyday. They often have more contact with their patients than other caregivers, and are better able to detect subtle changes that indicate improvement or deterioration in their condition. Most practice in hospitals and extended-care facilities, but many work in home health care.
