Pros: one to one nurse:patient ratio
Cons: management leaves a lot to be desired, pay rate for nc is terrible, not guaranteed hours, no pay raise, limited advancement.
A typical day for a field LPN: I get report from the previous nurse. Start my paperwork for the day. Administer any medications that are ordered, monitor the vent for any changes. Monitor the client through out the day for any changes. Provide 100% assist for activities of daily living. Give my report to next care giver and go home.
