workers in accomplishing assigned work and also performs non-supervisory work that is usually 
of the same kind and levels as is done by the group led. The LPN is responsible to his/her

employed and indicates applicable reference material and guidelines; checks work progress and 
reviews completed work to see that instructions have been carried out; answers questions and
