Licensed practical nurses provide beside care by monitoring the patient's vital signs and charting the data, administering injections, and feeding the patients if they need assistance with eating. Working a standard 40 hour week in mainly hospitals and nursing care facilities, LPN nurses may also have to provide care for patients around the clock, extending their usual working hours.

Prospective job seekers should be prepared to take and pass a licensing examination in all States, after completing a State approved practical nursing program before attaining LPN careers. In 2006, there were 1,500 State approved training programs for practical nurses.
