anyone have trouble finding a job?

  1. I'm in an ADN program and challenged the LPN boards in Sept. and passed but now I can't seem to find a job! :uhoh21: I didn't expect this at all. Our local hospital very rarely hires LPN's and they were looking for some for the ED. I interviewed and didn't get it. The LTC facility I worked at as a CNA for two years has NO openings as a LPN. I've applied at other LTC facilities and they are all just hiring 3rd shift which will not work with my family. Anyone else have this problem?

    I'm not personally having trouble, only because I am not searching right now. I graduated in August, and I'm in the process of relocating. However, there are about 5 girls in my class who absolutely can not find jobs. It's terrible and sad. This is just a bad state period when it comes to jobs. I hope when I move out of state it will be a different story. Sorry you are having trouble, I hope things change for the better.

    I just got my license in Sept and I had no luck in finding a hospital job in NJ. I applied to several LTC facilities and was hired for second shift. A lot of jobs in the paper were for pool/per diem which I didn't want (I need benefits) Most of the best (in my opinion) jobs around here were for LPNs with experience. Good luck and keep trying!
