    Geriatrics or Psych. I work in geriatrics but most days feel like I work in psych, especially on the dementia floor!

    I was attracted to LTC during my LVN program's clinical rotations. I ended up working in various LTC facilities and nursing homes for six years. Since LTC is generally easier to break into than other more sought-after specialties, this should be no surprise.

    If I had aspirations for the ICU, labor & delivery, or some other high-acuity specialty, I definitely would have had difficulties breaking into these units as an LVN in the city where I live.
