New Nurse Hired at Vinland

Andrew Lake, LPN, comes to Vinland from a long career in education.

Andrew has been working at Vinland National Center’s residential facility in Loretto, Minn. for over two months.

Previously, he worked as a special education teacher for 20 years. He then decided to go into nursing as a private duty nurse, which he still does part-time.

As an LPN at Vinland, Andrew monitors and regulates medications for clients and makes medical, dental and therapy appointments for clients outside the facility.

As one of several nurses on staff, Andrew also helps with overseeing best practices with staff that includes offering flu shots at certain times of the year.

Andrew enjoys being at Vinland.

“It’s different everyday,” Andrew said. “One day it can be quiet and the next day you can be running around.”
