A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LICENSED PRACTICAL NURSE (LPN)
As a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), you play a vital role in our nonprofit organization. Without you, we would not be able to fulfill our purpose! You provide skilled nursing care for medically fragile individuals with developmental disabilities living in a residential setting. This group home has a fun and happy environment and is a favorite among CAS employees!
Our residents are so great they're impossible not to love and build great bonds with.

You assist individuals with disabilities to meet their personal needs, which include preparing meals, administering medications, assisting with hygiene, and lifting clients in and out of wheelchairs. Collaborating with the RN manager and residential site supervisor, you assist in providing emergency caregiving services when needed.
Each day, you check the patients' status and read the communication log. You review medical progress notes and other documentation to assess the daily needs of those we serve. You also carefully and accurately complete documentation of your own. Your warm and friendly demeanor makes it easy for you to provide excellent caregiving service and build relationships with residents, their families, visitors, and your colleagues.
As you encourage leisure activities and promote new experiences, you ensure that socialization needs are being met. You take pride in the difference you make in the lives of our residents and that makes you perfect for this nursing position!
