I am starting the LVN program at my CC in August of 2009-I cannot wait to start!!! the wait is the worst, I am number 85 on the wait list and hopefully I will move up to maybe being able to start nursing school in August of 2008!!! I was wondering what is the difference between LVNs and LPNs? do they have the same responsibilities? And do LVNs do I.V. therapy? if not how do I become certified to do I.V. therapy because I really want to do I.V. therapy. sorry so many questions, on the packet I got for the LVN program at my CC it said that I would have to take and pass the NCLEX-PN for practical nurses so i thought that maybe LVNs and LPNs were the same. sorry if I offended anyone I was just wondering what the differences were.
any advice or helpful tips would be greatly appreciated
