I need some honest advice. In out current economy, would it be better to go to school to be an LPN or RN?
Which license will give you a better chance for jobs opportunities in the current economy? I've heard that many hospitals are cutting costs and are not hiring many new RN grads as they've done in the past? I have not heard much about LPNs in LTC. Any input is greatly appeciated!

I would say go for the RN. It's only two extra semesters and it will be a greater benefit all around. Hopefully by the time you graduate, the economy will be back on it's feet a little and jobs will be more readily available. It's always good to research your area to see what jobs are available and you can also call the hospitals and ask about new graduate positions. Good Luck in whatever you decided to do!
