Hello, I reside in Tampa,FL and currently attend HCC. I've been thinking of switching to Erwin Tech and do their LPN program. I have a couple questions about working as a LPN though.. I'm a single mom so I'm wondering if LPNs only work 12 hour shifts? Where do LPNs usually work besides hospitals and retirement homes? Is it common for them to work in md offices? And also, the most common question, are LPNs being "phased out". Is it worth becoming a LPN? I will someday continue my education and become and RN though. I think replies from florida residents would be most helpful but I would really appreciate replies from anybody anywhere, it would be very helpful on me choosing this as my career. Thank you!
