I have a job at a hospital as a CNA and I'm currently preparing to take boards for my LPN. Will my job just bump me up because I hear that you can't work in a hospital as a LPN. If I'm wrong correct me. Thanks for the input :)... Read More

    I'm in FL, we have LPNs working in hospitals here. Maybe it's a state by state thing.

    I know this one hospital that I did my clinical rotation was swarming with LPNs lol. Once I pass boards that's where I plan on going, or maybe a Doctor's office.

    I would look at internal job opportunities, and see where in the hospital you are currently in there are openings for LPNs. Then go to your HR department, tell them that you are licensing to become an LPN, and tell them of the position that you are looking at. See if you can get an appointment to speak with someone in that unit/department. They are not going to bump you up unless there's an opening for an LPN on the unit. Since your unit doesn't have LPN's, but the hospital employs them, you just need to figure out where that is and start the process.

    In my state, LVNs definitely work in hospitals. There aren't as many opportunities for them as there are for RNs, but they are there.

    There are LPN's working in some of Connecticut's hospitals. Very few hosptials here have LPN's but there are some.

    One of my previous employers still hired LPN's to work the floor (as of 3 yrs ago when I worked there), St. John Macomb in the northern suburbs of Detroit, if you're able to relocate...

    Yup they still do

    I was a student nurse tech at a hospital and I was told if I took my lpn boards and passed I would no longer have a job. My boss at the time told me not to take boards and I told her I had to and wanted too. I no longer work at the hospital and work as a charge lpn in long term care.
