LPN or LVN – is there a difference?

There is no difference besides a letter. Same qualifications, same duties, .same jobs. Practical vs. Vocational.


Most states use LPN – 48 in fact. The only two states that prefer “Licensed Vocational Nurse” are Texas and California. So if you’re moving to TX or CA and you are currently an LPN, the only thing that will change is the middle letter!
