    I don't think they are "phasing out" LPN's, but it is getting harder for LPN's (AND RN's) to even get a job, especially with no experience. Get your RN if you can, and BSN if you can absolutely! I think they need to get rid of LPN programs for good because it's gonna cause a lot of people grief in the long run because the jobs for LPN's are just not out there.

    I agree. Things have changed drastically since I finished my LVN program at the end of '08.

    To stop educating any more LPNs and then allow the ones already licensed to finish their career would have been the honorable thing to do.
