Upon completion of the program and passing the licensing examination, the vocational nurse can enter the workforce as a competent, skilled nurse. Vocational nurses provide patient-side nursing care at the direction of physicians and/or registered nurses. The practice of vocational nursing is based on concepts from the physical, biological and behavioral sciences. Each state has its own nurse practice act, so the scope of practice varies from state to state.
