LPN is focused on patient. RN Does the patient, family, ect. When it comes to the patient care which is what I am referring to, there isnt a considerable difference in the actual patient assessment. LPN does a full head to toe just like the RN does, and in my state in most places where the LPN works, they do the assessment and the RN they report to signs off on it.
