Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) Jobs
Licensed practical nurse (LPN) jobs make up a large part of the consistent medical staffing needs of hospitals, rehabilitation homes, and occupational health units across the nation. They are responsible for assisting physicians and registered nurses during their everyday treatment practices and providing basic bedside care for patients. This can include checking vital signs, feeding, giving medications and injections, and recording the health progress of a patient. Those in LPN jobs also devote a portion of their shift work to gathering specimens and running lab tests.
To take advantage of the licensed practical nursing jobs available, you must have already completed a training program from an accredited school. Licensed practical nurses are also required to pass the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) and obtain licensure before being considered for any licensed practical nursing jobs. As a practical nurse, you must possess strong judgment skills and be able to approach patients with sensitivity and emotional understanding. LPN jobs can have salaries ranging between C$40,973 and C$52,587 a year.Apply Today
