  1. Licensed practical nurse

    Licensed practical nurse is the term used in much of the United States and most Canadian provinces to refer to a nurse who cares for "people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled under the direction of registered nurses and physicians". The term licensed vocational nurse is used in the U.S. states of California and Texas. Equivalent professions outside the United States are "registered practical nurse" in the Canadian province of Ontario, "enrolled nurses" or "Division 2 nurses" in Australia and New Zealand, and "state enrolled nurses" in the United Kingdom. A person can generally become an LPN with one year of training. In terms of nursing education, the next step up is RN. RNs hold two-year degrees. In the United States an RN may enroll in an RN-to-BSN program, thereby completing his or her baccalaureate with another two years of study.
