Nursing School Terms

Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare system. They are often thought of as the heart and soul of an office or hospital, as they care one-on-one for patients at the most basic level. Whether they work on the floors bathing patients and taking vitals, or whether they work in the operating room prepping patients for surgery, nurses obtain their skills from attending a nursing school. Schools that teach you how to become a nurse abound in every state. Take courses to certify as an RN, for example, or get your license as an LPN. You can go on to work in a nursing home, medical practitioner’s office, clinic, or health care center. But you first need the skills necessary to assist doctors, care for patients, and manage health care systems. Find nursing schools in your area by searching online for universities and colleges, and learn about available degrees and training programs. There are certain popular definitions you should know before embarking on your nursing school quest.

  • LPN – Licensed practical nurses provide basic bedside assistance for those who are sick, injured, or disabled. They answer to physicians and registered nurses. These professionals may work in assisted living facilities caring for the elderly, in group homes caring for the sick or disabled, or within private practices.
  • RN – Registered nurses treat and educate patients, and provide emotional support to patients and their families. They also record medical histories, assist with diagnostic tests, operate machinery in hospital settings, administer medication and provide follow-up care. They may have a bachelor’s degree or associate’s degree in nursing.
  • Nurses School – Special schools devoted to nursing education and training courses. Many colleges feature nursing programs within them that you can register for to become an RN or LPN.

    If you have ever been to a hospital or physician’s office, chances are you have seen a nurse. But what exactly is a nurse, and what kinds of nurses are there? This guide can help you learn a little more about the healthcare professionals you meet. If you have an elderly or sick relative, you might consider an assisted living situation. The medical professional who visits your loved one and provides them with care is called an LPN. An LPN, or licensed practical nurse, specializes in working with people who need day to day help. They train for a year in a college or technical program. The nurses you generally see at a hospital are registered nurses. A registered nurse, or RN, has a little more schooling. Most RNs have a college degree from a two or four year program. Many even take courses to specialize in one area, such as pediatrics or surgery. A registered nurse is the most common. One other kind of nurse is a licensed nurse practitioner. You may have been confused if you went to a health center and a nurse wrote you a prescription, but that was probably an LNP. This is the highest level of nurse and requires the most education. This position requires a Masters or Doctoral degree, and a national board must certify the nurse. Often, they can run their own practice such as a birthing clinic. While each position requires a different amount of school, they all require passion and heart. So the next time you go to the doctor or call a home aid, just remember what it takes to be a nurse.
