Always in high demand, licensed vocational nurses provide a wide variety of essential patient care, under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. Graduates are eligible for licensing as an LVN or LPN (licensed practical nurse) and typically pursue careers at hospitals, long-term care, clinics and other healthcare facilities.
