Position : Rehabilitation LPN
Just like oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics, or neurology, rehabilitation nursing is a specialty with a core curriculum, scope and standards of practice, and unique knowledge in a given area.
Rehabilitation nurses work with persons and families who have been affected by disability or chronic illness. This includes those with spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, neurological diseases, orthopedic problems (such as amputation), cardiopulmonary issues, cancer, burns, and congenital deformities.
Rehabilitation nurses practice across the entire spectrum of post-acute care from acute rehabilitation to home health and skilled nursing facilities. They can be leaders, administrators, clinicians, advocates, and consultants.
