I'm a LPN in a hospital and have the same full responsibility as the RNs for my patients. I do admissions, teaching, meds, their daily care, make calls to the doctors, give IVPBs. Whenever I have an IV push or need the blood spiked the RN will do it. They also sign my tele strips. Overall just don't go in thinking it's any less stressful than for RNs. Now this may be different in another area of nursing.
