SEIU-West is proud to recognize LPN Day on May 13! The knowledge and experience of the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) lends to their practical placement where those skills can be put to work and in an environment that hones a high level of professionalism. LPNs have a regulated profession and an extremely concentrated medical training over two years that sets a high standard all across Canada. They are licensed, trained professionals who continue to build their skill and knowledge to benefit their patients, clients and residents. LPNs work in operating rooms, long term care facilities, emergency rooms, home care and public health offices. They bring compassion, integrity, knowledge and teamwork to our public health care team. Thank you for all you do!
“As an LPN, I am a proud member of your surgical team – providing and assisting with all aspects of patient care in the operating room, and advocating on behalf of patients when they are at their most vulnerable. I understand the value of having a strong health care team to meet patient needs and adequate staffing levels are key to the provision of safe care.” – Lisa, LPN
