First I will give a little back ground. In my area approx 120 LPN's graduated from 2 different schools
with in weeks of each other making it very competative to get a LPN job. I have no prior experince in the medical field which I feel is why I am having such difficulty finding employment. Many of my class mates are experinacing the same problem. The ones who were CNA's before school have gotten jobs but the ones that are starting out fresh have not. In the newspaper I have seen several jobs advertising for medical assistants that sound like great jobs but I have not applied becouse I am not a medical assistant. Do you think some of these places would consider hiring a LPN instead of a medical assistant or is that why it says medical assistant becouse that is specifically what they want? I know no one can tell me this specifically but I guess what I am really trying to say is do you think it would be okay to apply for these jobs ? Worst case scenario they trash my resume best case scenario I get a great job in a nice doctors office.
