Registered nurses (RNs), regardless of specialty or work setting, treat patients, educate patients and the public about various medical conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients' family members. Registered Nurses can work in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, health centers, private homes and public health agencies. RNs may work in specialized clinical areas such as maternity, pediatrics, surgery, intensive care or psychiatry. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) are healthcare professionals who work under the supervision of a registered nurse or a physician and provide direct patient care.
