LVN jobs are readily available in the nursing industry. LVN stands for licensed vocational nurse. They may also be known as LPNs, or licensed practical nurses. LVNs provide basic bedside care to patients under the supervision of a doctor or RN.

Features of LVN Jobs

LVNs are responsible for treating all rehabilitation diagnosis and collaborating with the primary physician. They take vital signs such as temperature, pulse, respiration and blood pressure. They may also give injections, insert catheters, apply ice packs, give massages, and apply dressings.

LVN jobs are readily available because there is currently a shortage in nurse staffing around the country. Most other industries are experiencing job shortages, but the nursing industry has many opportunities for employment. Many hospitals and health clinics will also offer incentives such as signing bonuses to entice nurses to work full-time.

If you prefer to work full-time and to stay in one location, there are many available LVN jobs to choose from. If you would like more flexibility and variety in your work, you may want to consider a travel nursing position. Travel nurses travel to different locations to take on various short-term assignments. They are especially desirable because they pay very well, employee benefits are substantial, you will have the opportunity to travel, and agencies provide LVNs with free, furnished housing.
