LVNs, or Licensed Vocational Nurses, are known as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) elsewhere, but are LVNs in Texas and California. LVNs and LPNs both work under the supervision of registered nurses and physicians, providing bedside care to patients. Skills shown on example resumes of LVNs include administering medications in the proper dosage, monitoring fluid intake and output levels, and administering G-tube feedings. Those interested in becoming LVNs should be able to show licensure and one to two years in a vocational nursing training program on their resumes.
