As a PN, your duties might include providing basic medical care, greeting patients and recording their information, collecting samples, monitoring patients (acting quickly if complications occur), and counseling family members of patients on how to administer medications, identify symptoms, and stay healthy.

Practical Nurses have the option to work in a variety of settings and environments; so finding a perfect fit for your skills, needs, and schedule is easy.
