Rosa, a student, is about to graduate as an LPN/LVN. She wants to begin searching for a job within her community. In looking at local advertisements, she notices that some are for RNs and some for LPN/LVNs.

1. What type of employment and duties require an RN rather than a new LPN/LVN?
2. When seeking employment in a long-term care facility or a rehabilitation facility, what type of positions might be available for LPN/LVNs?
3. What is the overall requirement for an LPN/LVN no matter where she or he works?
