LPN/LVN question?

  1. I didn't found nothing to this and I've been wondering this long time... What is different between LPN and LVN?! I'm from Finland so we don't have here this kind of names... here we are just PN. Is here anyone who would like to help me with these because I don't know . Thanks.

    It's the same thing. There are just two different names, depending on which state the person is in. In Texas and California, we have LVN's. In the rest of the US, they have LPN's.
