Have you tried hiring agencies, home care, I know some schools hire LPNs for school nurses. Im in MN and its hard here too. I actually found a job (LPN) at a Chem Hlth facility. Im on call. But I have another full time office job and school. I work about 4-5 days a month 12 hr shifts. It works for me now just to get experience while im trying to get in to RN bridge program. One of my cohorts suggested just pulling out the phone book and calling, asking places if they are hiring, and if they are fax/drive over resume. Ask to speak to hiring mamager/nrsg supervisor. Also for your resume make sure its tailored to the positions you are applying for, Im not saying bluffing or anything. But look at the description of what they are looking for and if you possess any of theo qualities really emphasize that. I hope that helps good luck.
