Prn Question

  1. I have one of those "dumb" student questions...
    What is a PRN and also, what's the difference between a LPN and LVN?
    Makes my little head spin
    thank you

    PRN = as needed/when necessary

    I think LPN/LVN is the basically the same thing, just called one in some areas and the other in other places. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

    LPN and LVN are the same thing. Just depends on where you are
