For many LPNs, the idea of performing as a Supervisor is a totally unknown experience. Many LPNs entered the nursing profession because they wanted to care for others but did not plan on being in a supervisory position. Oftentimes, the LPN is not prepared for the stress that comes with supervisory responsibilities. The purpose of this course is to provide training and guidance to the LPN making the transition into a supervisory role. Hopefully, it will make your transition into this role easier and less stressful.
The first part of this course examines the different scopes of practice for different healthcare professionals and focuses attention on developing the necessary organizational and leadership skills to become a Supervisory LPN. Although this course mentions the Florida LPN supervision regulation, it is appropriate for LPNs nationwide in any type of care setting as an introduction to the skills needed for supervision.
