I dont understand employers. I am a new Lpn grad and I am applying everwhere possible whether they are hiring are not and all I hear is "u need 6mons-1yrs." how I am to get it if no one gives me a chance. I am 32 and when I was in high school u could find a job without degree. but now they say get a degree and when u pay all that money no one wants to hire. I dont get it. Nursing programs advertise about nursing shortage but they are just lying to get your money. There are 100 lpn/Rn going after the same position in one facility. Even experience nurses are having a hard time. I'm ready to work so I can make money while making a difference.
