What is Vocational Nursing?

Vocational nursing is another word for Licenses Practical Nurse, or Licensed Vocational Nurse. Most LVN/LPN programs are 12 months or less of full time study. An LVN/LPN is a step below an RN, and can perform IV’s, administer meds and provide care under ventilation, depending on state regulations. Most school programs have made it very easy for an LPN/LVN, to continue their education, to get an RN degree.
