What is the role of a Licensed Practical Nurse?  Great question! 
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) will work in conjunction with a Registered Nurse (RN) to support the health care needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) that have chosen New Hope Community for residential and programmatic supports.
 
Ok, so what will I actually be doing every day?
As a LPN you will work as part of a team, creating and implementing medical based treatments for the individuals supported in the residence.  Additional duties include; preparing monthly physician orders and medication administration records, training staff (as needed), counsel individuals on their needs (sexuality, hygiene, medical and nutritional needs), provide first aid and treatment for individuals as needed and maintain medical related documentation.  Days can be challenging and busy but also be filled with laughter, learning, and special moments!
 
What characteristics are you looking for in your LPN’s?
An effective LPN will be kind and compassionate to the individuals we support and create medical based recommendations through this lens.  LPN’s must be agile and adaptable with the ability to respond to an individual’s changing needs quickly.
 
What certifications or skills do I need to be a LPN?
A LPN must possess a valid New York State license to practice.  Additionally, all staff must possess a clean/valid NYS Driver’s License and the ability to lift/push/pull 50lbs. Prior experience in a clinical, medical or surgical setting is preferred, but not required as we provide excellent, ongoing staff training and development experiences for all our staff to ensure you have the knowledge and skillset necessary to do your job well!
