Frustrated

  1. Hey all. I'm moving to Indianapolis in December and I'm getting extremely frustrated with the job outlook there. It seems all there is is LTC or home health. Now, I have done both and there's nothing wrong with either of them, but I guess I just expected more. I think I expected more choices for a LPN being in a bigger city. I guess it's true that LPN's are getting phased out. Can anyone help me shed some light on the job situation? Is there alot more out there that I'm missing? I'd appreciate all the help I can get, because I'm kind of running out of time. Thank you all!

    I don't know what to tell you. I am just a student, but... I look at the ads all the time and I think you're assessment is correct. I have done clinicals in indianapolis and there aren't LPNs on the floor, however in the the outlying areas there are (again from clinical experience). Lastly, what about correctional nursing? From previous posts, there seems to be a need, and the pay is ok....

    Hi,

    I do think LPNs are being phased out in the acute care setting but I still see lots of job opportunities available in other areas.

    Good luck

    I think there are also jobs in medical practices. Try Clarian.org and stvincent.org.

    Thanksall for your posts! Funny you should say that..I'm talking with a company now about a correction facility position. I'm a little nervous, but willing to give it a chance. I've tried St. Vincent and Clarian..they all want RN's. Well thank you all for your posts and support! :wink2:

    St. V has 7 LPN positions listed between Indy and Carmel. Did you search their job site?
