Job Description for Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN)

Nurses are an essential part of the medical practice, and without them, proper recovery and acclimation to medical environments can be difficult. The duty of a licensed vocational nurse is to help patients prepare for treatment and assist in their recovery. To do this, licensed vocational nurses will be required to talk to patients and doctors, review medical documentation, report and document any changes in a patient's medical conditions, and monitor a patient's health during his or her stay. To become licensed, a licensed vocational nurse must take a state exam in the state in which he or she practices. A licensed vocational nurse must also have graduated from an accredited vocational nursing program. This can be done at a vocational school or at a college. In addition to a formal education, licensed vocational nurses must be good at working with people and comfortable providing care when it is needed.
