LPNs in Arkansas?

  1. What is it like for LPNs in Arkansas? Are most LPN jobs in LTC? Are hospitals in Arkansas phasing out LPNs and using RNs only?

    I'll be a new grad LPN next summer, and I'm debating if I want to go straight to work, or continue immediately into the RN bridge program. I think getting some hands on experience would be beneficial before continuing on to the RN classes, but I don't know if it would be difficult for a new LPN to find employment.

    Thanks!

    I was thinking of going LPN school first but when I look at all the jobs listed online and at local hospitals - everyone is wanting an RN. I going directly for RN but you will have lots of experience if your continue to go to school as an RN and maybe work part-time as a LPN while doing so.
