Licensed practical nurses (LPNs)

Licensed practical nurses provide basic medical care, such as monitor patients’ health by checking their body temperature and blood pressure; changing bandages and helping with bathing or dressing; and discussing care with parents and listening to their concerns.

The median annual pay is $52,610 per year in Wisconsin, and it is expected that the need for this position will increase by 5% (faster than average) in the next 10 years.

A certificate or additional training after high school is required to become a licensed practical nurse.

Most licensed practical nurses work full time. Some work nights, weekends and holidays because medical care takes place at all hours. They may be required to work shifts of longer than 8 hours.

You may be a good fit for this opportunity if you excel in compassion, communication skills, attention to detail, interpersonal skills, multitasking skills and physical stamina.
