I am a currently a LPN who is completing my BSN in Chicago. I know that people who are already working in a hospital have a better chance at finding employment at their facility upon graduation. Knowing this, I feel as if im at a disadvantage because hospitals rarely hire LPN's. I currently workn in home health and have worked in LTC. These are not areas I want to work after graduation. Im willing to step back and work as a CNA while in school to get my foot in the door at a hospital, (ive worked as one before I became an LPN) but no one seems to call me back when I apply. Do you think that hospitals will not hire me as a CNA because im an LPN? I can't omit that info from my app because once they look me up in the IDPH nurse aide registry both professions come up.....hmmm frustrated! Suggestions please!!!
