Licensed Practical Nurse Programs in NJ

A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in New Jersey works closely with Registered Nurses and other health care providers to care for patients, help patient rehabilitate after an illness or injury and to prevent patient illness. The LPN scope of practice in New Jersey is in development and in most cases follows the nurse scope of practice act in New Jersey. LPNs most often work under the supervision of a registered nurse where the registered nurse follows the New Jersey Board of Nursing’s Algorithm for Determining Scope of Practice and for Making Delegation Decisions when delegating duties to the LPN. LPNs are not allowed to delegate duties or responsibilities in the health care setting, though many find themselves doing so.
