CNA, LVN, LPN and RN Explained
In the medical industry there can be a lot of confusing acronyms. Different states also use different terminology, which can add to the confusion. In the nursing field there are numerous designations:
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) – A CNA works under the supervision of an RN or LVN/LPN to provide basic care such as bathing and dressing. It’s very common to move from CNA to LVN.
Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) – This is the entry-level position for people wanting to enter the nursing field. LVNs provide medical care while working under the supervision of registered nurses or physicians. They care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent or disabled.
Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) – An LPN is the same job role as an LVN. The only difference is an LPN is referred to as an LVN in California and Texas. LPN programs teach very similar curriculum in other states. It can get a little confusing when choosing the right career path, but just know an LPN is the same as and LVN.
Registered Nurse (RN) – What is a registered nurse? An RN provides advanced medical care, including treatment planning and administering medications. Many RNs begin their career as LVNs or LPNs.
