Travel Long Term Care LPN Jobs

Long Term Care LPNs are licensed practical nurses, or licensed vocational nurses, who specialize in administering basic nursing care in long-term care environments. They aren’t considered independent practitioners, so they must be supervised by a registered nurse or other medical supervisor. Employment of LPNs/LVNs is projected to grow 9% from 2019 to 2029 with an increased need in residential care facilities and home health environments for an aging population.

Long Term Care LPN nurse salary According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, LPNs and LVNs in staff positions at nursing and residential care facilities in 2019 earned $48,840 annually. This yearly salary breaks down to about $939 weekly and $23.48 hourly in a 40-hour work week. Travel LTC LPN in equivalent positions can expect to earn $1,402 weekly, per salary data compiled by NurseFly that same year. Weekly salaries may include compensation for housing, meals, and other incidental expenses, which are called stipends and aren’t taxed if the travel nurse can claim a permanent tax home.

What does a Long Term Care LPN do?

LPNs typically work as bedside nurses, but in long-term facilities, they may act as supervisors to nursing assistants who provide direct caregiving. LPNs in LTC facilities perform basic patient care, including taking vital signs, changing bandages, wound care, inserting catheters, collecting specimens, and administering oral medications. They may also assist with patients’ basic comforts and personal hygiene, helping them with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, etc. Other tasks may include:

  • Monitoring patients’ health

  • Reporting changes in condition to RNs or doctors

  • Consulting with RNs on patient care plans

  • Taking patient histories and maintaining patient data

  • Assisting with and promoting mobility

  • Assisting with tests and/or procedures

  • Listening to patient concerns

Where do Long Term Care LPNs work?

A majority of LTC LPNs work in nursing and residential care facilities or other long-term care locations, such as assisted living facilities or continuing care retirement communities. LPNs and LVNs may also work in hospitals, physician offices, rehabilitation centers, clinics, and private homes.

What skills make a good Long Term Care LPN?

Good long-term care LPNs are thoroughly familiar with their scope of practice at the facility that employs them. They possess the appropriate clinical skills and knowledge to care for the patients within this facility and maintain current CPR and first aid certifications. LTC LPNs have excellent observation skills and exceptional oral and written communication skills to effectively give and receive information between medical professionals and patients. They also possess superb time management skills to ensure all patients receive the best care in the most efficient manner. A good bedside manner is a highly essential quality for LPNs to effectively develop bonds and build relationships with LTC patients.

How to become a Long Term Care LPN Travel Nurse?

LPNs and LVNs must complete a state-approved educational program, usually taking about a year to finish and awarding a certificate or diploma. LPNs must be licensed in all states, which requires passing the NCLEX-PN licensing exam. Employers may require LPNs to complete CPR training and some prefer advanced certification. Travel LTC LPN positions typically require six months to two years of recent experience in a skilled nursing facility.

LPNs may earn Basic Life Support certification from the American Red Cross and Long-Term Care Certification through the National Association for Practical Nurse Education and Services. LTC LPNs may also consider specialty certifications in IV Therapy, Rehabilitation Nursing, and/or Pharmacology.
