    I live in MS. and LPN jobs are abundant here. Ads I have seen just today:
    LTC, Home Health, VA, free standing clinics and clinics within hospitals, LTAC, case management, in hospitals as medication reconciliation nurses, admissions and discharge nurses, Keesler Air Force Base, Correctional medicine, Dialysis centers, restorative nurses, occupational health nurses, gastroenterology clinics, Director of wellness, etc...In other words, LPNs do not have problems finding jobs here. In the 18+ years I have been a LPN, the longest I have gone without a job was two months.

    Totally depends on your geographic area and the demands.

    P.S. I currently work in a very large family health clinic who is doing away with MAs and only hiring LPNs.

    My area is starting to have more Nurse run clinics (RNs and LPNs) that are a part of health systems, instead of MAs as well; they've decided to shift to less ancillary personnel and have more nursing staff; so LPNs aren't going anywhere!
