Application (two parts):

What are the different ways students can study abroad?

  • Exchange
  • International Internship
  • JGE (Jindal Global Experience) Course
  • Third Party Programs
  • Special UTD Programs: PPA Program in Marburg, DMHP trip to Prague and Budapest

Do Global Business students have to study abroad?

I’m not a Global Business student. Can I still study abroad?

Yes – they need to either have one semester-long exchange program, one international internship, or two JGE courses.

Can students complete their study abroad and their internship requirement at the same time?

Yes! International internships are encouraged!

What semester is the best to study abroad?

  • The ideal time to study abroad is Sophomore/Junior year. NO student (Undergraduate or Graduate) can participate in an exchange program or Third Party Program during their last two semesters at UTD.
  • Students can participate in JGE Courses and International Internships during their last two semesters, but it is not recommended.

What are the GPA requirements?

  • Exchange All students must have 3.0 minimum GPA.
  • International Internship, Third Party Students must have a minimum 2.0 GPA.
  • JGE Courses Undergraduate students must have a minimum 2.0 GPA. There is not a minimum GPA requirement for graduate students.

I’m about to graduate! If a student only has 2 (or less) semesters left, but they need to complete a study abroad requirement, what should they do?

  • In this case, the student should consider doing two separate JGE courses.
  • If they have time, they could also consider doing an international internship.

Are there any specific UTD scholarships available?

  • Yes! JSOM students have two ways to apply for study abroad scholarships at UTD: The International Education Fund Scholarship (IEFS) and the JSOM Travel Scholarship. However, in order to be eligible for the JSOM Travel Scholarship, the student must first have applied for the IEFS.
    • JSOM Travel Scholarship – $200 a week for Exchange/Third Party/International Internships; $500 for a JGE

What other scholarships are available?

  • McDermott Terry Scholarships fully fund international internships.
  • National Merit Scholars get $6,000 grant for international travel.

LPNs? What do they do? Where can they work? Difference between LPN vs RN? #lpn-vs-rn,

LPNs? What do they do? Where can they work? Difference between LPN vs RN?

Many people ask the same repetitive questions about licensed practical nurses (LPNs). To some, their role in healthcare is shrouded in mystery. The intended purpose of this article is to answer a handful of these questions while facilitating more understanding regarding the unique role of the LPN.

I have heard and read the same questions rather frequently. Heck, I am almost certain that you have probably encountered these very same questions, too.

  • What is an LPN?
  • What type of stuff do LPNs do?
  • Where can LPNs work?
  • What is the difference between LPNs and RNs?

I will approach each of these questions separately with the genuinely heartfelt hope of clearing up some of the misconceptions surrounding LPNs.

What exactly is an LPN?

First of all, LPN is an acronym that stands for licensed practical nurse. Forty-eight American states and most of the the Canadian provinces utilize the title of LPN. The remaining two states in the union (California and Texas) use the acronym LVN, which stands for licensed vocational nurse. The Canadian province of Ontario refers to their practical nurses as RPNs, which is an acronym that stands for registered practical nurse. Despite the slightly different titles, LPNs, LVNs, and RPNs are one and the same. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a licensed practical nurse is defined as a person who has undergone training and obtained a license to provide routine care to the sick.

What do LPNs do?

Well, the answer to this question is highly dependent upon the state or province in which the LPN practices nursing. Some state boards of nursing, such as the ones in Texas and Oklahoma, have extremely wide scopes of practice that permit LPNs to do almost anything that individual facility policies will allow. LPNs in states with wide scopes of practice are usually allowed to perform most of the same skills that their RN coworkers can do, such as initiating IV starts, administering medications via IV push, maintaining central lines, and so forth. Other boards of nursing, such as the ones in California and New York, have narrow scopes of practice that severely limit what LPNs in those two states are allowed to do.

In general, LPNs in all states perform nursing care such as medication administration, data collection on patients, monitoring for changes in condition, vital sign checks, wound care and dressing changes, specimen collection, urinary catheter insertion and care, care of patients with ventilators and tracheostomies, ostomy site care and maintenance, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and finger stick blood sugar testing. Proper charting and documentation of nursing care is also the LPN’s responsibility.

The LPN works under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or physician in most states; however, the LPN is often the only licensed nurse present in many facilities. LPNs also supervise nursing assistants in certain healthcare settings. With the right mix of experience, LPNs can be promoted to administrative positions such as wellness directors, assistant directors of nursing, wound care clinicians, staffing coordinators, and case managers.

Where can LPNs work?

LPNs can and do work in acute care hospitals, although this type of employment seems to be on the decline in many regions in the United States due to issues surrounding scope of practice. LPNs also secure employment in nursing homes, hospices, home health, private duty cases, psychiatric hospitals, prisons/jails, rehabilitation facilities, group homes, clinics, doctors’ offices, assisted living facilities, agencies, military instillations, and schools.

What are the differences between LPNs and RNs?

Well, my answer might generate disagreement, although I do not intend to offend anyone. Some would say that RNs have attained a wider breadth of educational experiences that include pathophysiology, pharmacology, leadership, research, management, legal/ethical issues, and team functioning. In most cases, the LPN has completed an educational program that is shorter in length than his/her RN counterpart. The RN typically initiates the plan of care while the LPN contributes and adds to it. Finally, the LPN usually earns less money than his/her RN coworkers, though this is not always the case.

My overarching goal was to answer some of the most common questions that are asked about LPNs. The LPN is very much a nurse, as well as a vitally important member of the healthcare team. Together we can continue to facilitate more understanding regarding the role of the LPN to benefit our patients, colleagues, the public, and society as a whole.

By the way, I have heard so many people saying, The LPN is only a certificate/diploma program. This is not accurate.

LPNs in the U.S. can earn a certificate/diploma, associate of applied science (AAS) degree in practical nursing. or challenge a couple of state boards. Click on the link below to read about the different educational pathways available to people who want to become LPNs in the U.S.

Thanks for the post. I really really don’t mean to start a RN vs LPN thread. Please don’t get offended. But the bolded area, seriously, what does this mean? Has anybody ever heard of this? Which college/university offers this? Or where in BON can we look that up?

You either have Associate in Applied Science (RN), which could also be called Associate degree in nursing. Or you have Diploma in Practical Nursing (LPN). There is no such thing as associate of applied science (AAS) degree in practical nursing . LPN is not a degree in nursing. Lowest degree in nursing is Associates and that leads to RN.
Thanks for the post, but that very section was not accurate.

I respectfully disagree with you. The associate of applied science (AAS) in practical nursing certainly exists at many community colleges and state universities in the U.S.

A person can choose one of three paths to become an LPN: certificate/diploma, associate degree, or challenging the board (a couple of states still allow this). Click on the first link below to read about the educational pathways that lead to initial LPN licensure. Click on the second link to read about the practical nursing AAS program at North Seattle Community College.

I’ve noticed the certainty with which people claim LPNs cannot do this or that is inversely related to how long they’ve been a student or new nurse – so I think you’re right, Mrs. H. — that we can attribute a lot of the misinformation to nursing school faculty.

One thing the article didn’t mention was the length of LPN educations and how they vary.I am an RPN in Ontario and our programs are two years long.Excellent article.

I wrote another post recently that discusses in detail the different types of educational entries into practical nursing. However, I focused heavily on LPNs in the United States. Click on the link below if you are interested.
http://allnurses.com/lpn-lvn-nursing. ad-743076.html

I think it’s best to compare program length by contact hours. My LVN program was 1500 hours over 52 weeks. 1,040 hours were clinical the rest was theory hours. The course was 5 days a week 32-36 hours a week. They offered the same program over 1.5 years with 2 evenings and every other weekend.

Regardless of the number of hours as a percentage of contact hours I’ve noticed LPN/LVN do more well practical hands on. Not more overall but as a ratio.

Study Points

The need for guidance and counseling is universal. It is based on this visible fact that all human being need guidance. There would hardly be any individual who does not need any sort of guidance in his entire life Tome, everyone needs assistance in terms of guidance and counseling. Some people need guidance constantly and throughout their lives while others need it only at times of great crisis. I hold that guidance is not confined to particular people or groups of people. The Significance of guidance and counseling has been recognized by all mankind. The need for guidance has been there from the times immemorial and will continue to be as long as Man exists here on earth. The significance of guidance and counseling is addressed in the following lines :-

Self-finding :-

Self-finding refers to the understanding of an individual with his/her abilities, natural tendencies and social role. An expert advisor enables an individual to find himself/herself and consequently lead a balanced and successful life. The guidance program tells the individual what is She/he? What does he/she can? And
what are the professions in which the individual may succeed? The destination of self-finding is more or less the result of timely and continual counseling. This destination opens many new ways of success in the life Of the individual.

Agreeableness :-

Agreeableness means such a mutual relation between the individual and the environment which results in the acquisition of the individual and group objectives.
