Become a Nurse: The Differences Between an RN, LPN, and CNA


Without a doubt, nursing is a profession for those committed to making a difference in people’s lives. Every professional hour is dedicated to helping the sick and injured, and those patients often view their nurses as guardian angels in scrubs during some of the toughest moments of their lives. But for those dedicated individuals looking to head back to school and join the ever-expanding field of nursing, there’s another big decision to make: becoming a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), or certified nursing assistant (CNA). Each of these careers has different requirements, responsibilities, and earning potential. Check out the differences in the informative infographic above, provided by Goodwin College!
