One of the most important jobs within the health care industry is the licensed practical nurse ( LPN ), and these nurses are the backbone of any top home health care agency. An LPN is responsible for providing care to patients who are dealing with an illness, disability, or injury. An LPN is also fully capable of providing the necessary bedside care that seniors need.
All licensed practical nurses (LPNs) are trained and have the proper education to provide patients with basic nursing care, under the supervision of a doctor or registered nurse. In order to become an LPN, an individual must successfully complete a Florida state-approved educational program, in addition to receiving a nursing license by passing the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN). An LPN may also be referred to as a licensed vocational nurse (LPN).
At Allegiance Home Health, we hire the best licensed practical nurses to care for the seniors that hire our South Florida based home health care agency. Every individual hired by our organization must go through an intensive background check, and must provide us with proper references which are all verified.
