What would the field of home health care do without our licensed practical nurses and medical assistants? It would be difficult to imagine seeing as the need for these professionals is of great importance and demand. For the aforementioned reason, we are offering courses on practical nursing.
Of course, licensed practical nurses are certified nurses who are working under the supervision of both registered nurses and physicians. Licensed practical nurses provide basic care such as helping patients with their daily living activities and other care-related responsibilities.
Licensed practical nurses need to complete a program and take the NCLEX practical nursing exam. Reviewing for the NCLEX is also part of our offers aside from healthcare training programs in Hanover Park, Illinois. To elaborate, we provide practical nursing and other nursing programs and medical assistant program.
Licensed Practical Nurses vs. Medical Assistants
Medical assistants can be confused with practical nurses seeing as these professions do go hand in hand and can be found in the same workplace. Of course, in terms of training, practical nurses have longer training periods and they need to qualify a licensure exam.
More on medical assistants, jobs of medical assistants can vary depending on the state one is in. It’s good to check state provisions for medical assistant responsibilities. This applies especially if one plans on working at a different state after completing their training with us.
