I graduated from my LPN program in December and I've just recently got my license. I am hoping to start an RN program in August, but until then, I thought I could use the extra time off I have to pad my credentials a bit with some extra certifications. I've done some google searches and gone through some of the old threads here, but there are so many certifications to choose from.
Anyone have some suggestions for what certifications are must have, most useful, etc.? Are there any that will give me a head up on someone else competing for the same job?

IV therapy is very useful and it makes you so much more marketable as an LPN!
You can also get your ACLS, which would also prove very helpful.
ALSO- did you read the sticky on this? it pretty much answers your Q. http://allnurses.com/lpn-lvn-corner/...al-215714.html
