    I work with a number of nurses who used their LPN as a stepping stone. It is true that most hospitals have stopping hiring LPN's, you can still work and continue your education. So of the best nurses I ever worked with where LPN's. It is my opinion only that if you are a new graduate, then a min. of 1 year on med/surg is needed before moving on to a speciality unit. You gain so many skills working med/surg that you will need in ICU/CCU/ER/Cath Lab. I have worked them all, and the time is spent on med/surg has helped me greatly.
    Good Luck
