Employment of licensed practical nurses (LPNs) is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026 according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics†, faster than the average for all occupations. A contributing factor to the growth of licensed practical nurses is the healthier living habits of the population, giving them a longer lifespan. The baby boomer generation is aging and their need for healthcare has spurred the need for additional healthcare professionals.
