Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)?

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in Whitby:
"Helping to make the world a better place!"
Pros: I love being able to interact with people from all walks of life and hearing their stories and history. Everyone has a story to tell but often we as HCPs don't have a chance to sit and listen.
Cons: Being short staffed and having to make tough decisions based on prioritizing one person's needs over another. I wish I could see everyone get the help they need when they need it.
