LPN jobsRegister Today!
- by mom2a1c2 Apr 5, '12I am getting ready to finish up Block 2 and have the opportunity to take the LPN class to be able to get licensed. I plan on continuing with Blocks 3 & 4 to become and RN, but I was wondering if it would be worth it to get my LPN? Are there jobs for right now for new bilingual LPN's in the Phoenix area?

- Apr 9, '12 by jchatlpnYES! There are always a need for bilingual nurses in AZ. I would get the LPN just as a safeguard. You never know what can happen to you during that 3 and 4 block. But with your LPN you'll at least be able to advance place into another program if something does go wrong for 3 and 4 block. You can even find an employer who will pay you to go to school and who can promote you to an RN position if you find an LPN position with those possibilities. Plus, you'll gain experience as a nurse when you use your LPN first. Look into school nursing at K-8 elementary schools, corrections, home health, hospice, LTC. Those areas hire LPNs a lot. Unfortunately hospitals do not hire LPNs as often but if you keep your eyes open on Banner and the other places then sometimes they have openings for new grads.
I keep hearing that new grad nurses have a hard time finding jobs as nurses if they have NO previous medical experience first. So that would help you there. If you're getting your RN with no medical background then getting your LPN and getting that experience is a good way to go. That's my opinion at least.

I'm trying to find something 2-3 days a week...I don't even know where to get started but I do need to find something a couple days a week.
