Licensed Practical Nurse Job Outlook

related items: Registered Nurse Job Outlook, Nursing Aide Job Outlook

Employment of licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses is expected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, better than the average for all occupations. As the U.S. population ages, the overall need for healthcare is expected to increase. This trend will lead to increased employment of LPNs and LVNs in hospitals, physicians' offices, and other healthcare settings. LPNs and LVNs also will be needed in residential care facilities such as nursing homes and assisted-living centers. Many procedures that once could be done only in hospitals are now being done outside of hospitals, creating demand in other settings, such as outpatient care centers.

A large number of licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses are expected to retire over the coming decade. Job opportunities should, therefore, be excellent for licensed and experienced LPNs and LVNs.
