    Home care and hospice both utilize LPNs. Maybe do that and take a per diem at a LTC place? Not only that but I believe some clinics also use LPNs.
    I got an interview at urgent care and thinking of doing home care and ltc per diem. The urgent care is connected through the hospital which has hospice (my dream job but they're not hiring at the moment) do you think home care is a good idea for a new grad. They have pediatric and geriatrics.

    First good luck with the Urgent Care job, I hope you get it! Second, sorry but no I don't think home care is a good idea for a new grad. There is nobody to consult when you have questions, you are truly on your own to make decisions. That's a scary position to be in until you have the experience to feel comfortable and confident in your practice.
