Quick Facts about Vocational Nurses*

  • Employment of Vocational Nurses is projected to grow 16 percent nationally from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
  • Many procedures that once could be done only in hospitals are now being done outside of hospitals, creating a greater demand for Vocational Nurses in other settings, such as outpatient care centers.
  • As the number of individuals who have access to health insurance continues to increase due to federal health insurance reform, more LVNs and LPNs will be needed, particularly in ambulatory care settings, to care for the newly insured who seek primary and preventative care services.
  • Most Vocational Nurses work full time. Many 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.
