Overview

Nurses are the heart of the healthcare industry. LVNs play a unique and instrumental part in daily facility operations, patient care and provide critical support to both RNs and doctors. That makes them one of the most versatile members of a healthcare team. LVNs work under the direct supervision of RNs and doctors, performing both clinical and non-clinical duties. And like so many careers in the healthcare industry, the demand for LVNs is growing at a much faster than average rate and the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts an increase of as much as 9% in job opportunities for LVNs by 2029.*
