my wife and i (both lpn right now) are considering relocating to des moines within the near future. we just received out lvn license (or lpn) in texas, but intend to pursue rn asap, so our questions:
1. what is the job market for rn/lpn like? is it hard to find a job with a new rn license?
2. what opportunities are there for lpn to continue to rn (like an lpn-rn bridge program)?
3. are there waiting lists for entrance to these programs?
4. what is the typical starting salary for rns in des moines?
