I will pay for the following article Licensed Practical Nurse to Registered Nurse Role Transitions. The work is to be 7 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Striving for a registered nurse role (RN) is the most challenging task an LPN (licensed practical nurse) could face. Pursuing a registered nurse role may require a lot of time, effort, and financial support. But despite the sacrifices necessary to become a registered nurse, the initiative to go beyond the comfort zone and experiences will make an LPN grow personally and professionally.
Harrington& Terry(2009) define role transition as “the passage or shifts from one role to another and involves changing the way one thinks and acts” (p. 54). Role transition from LPN to RN role is a unique experience as it changes and broadens the LPN’s responsibilities, thinking practice and experience, and the overall view of the nursing world. The decision to become a registered nurse uprooted to the two of the most important goals I have at the moment: one of them is to continue my nursing education and explore a vast array of knowledge, skills, and experiences apart from being an LPN, and the other one is to pursue this long-time dream of being a registered nurse that helps people as well as the increase in income. The road to becoming a registered is not easy and requires an understanding of the differences between the LPN and RN roles, the management of conflicts, application of classroom discussion to role transition and, knowing and understanding the existing facts and standards of the state board of nursing. The LPN transitioning to become an RN faces variations in the roles they perform. Often times, distinguishing the differences between the roles they perform becomes difficult as they are bombarded with several role variations.
However, there are two specific role changes the differences between an LPN and an RN. One of the first specific role changes is the difference in the nature of client care. LPNs focus on the “how-to” of client care .while RNs focus on understanding the “why” of client care(Ham, 2002, p. 11). LPNs main concern is the delivery of standard care needed by the client and not the underlying concepts behind the procedures. RNs, on the other hand, consider a variety of nursing skills in order to understand the patient as a whole. .
