LPN with no Job!!!

  1. 0
    i live in NJ. I got my license in 2011 but I still don't have a job yet. I did everything to find a job ..on line , in person, job fairs but no luck.

    My question is which way is to get a job faster either do LPN to RN or get all kinds of certificates first. Such as IV...

    I haven't had any luck finding a job either and I am IV Certified. I am considering doing a LPN to RN program but will be seeking for a job still. I guess maybe its just our luck. I hope you and I both find something soon. Good luck!

    Getting as many certificates as you can will make you more marketable. As an LVN, you definitely want to be IV certified. I got my LVN job by not giving up & doing whatever I had to do to get a job. I was applying everywhere & anywhere from 50 to 100 miles away. You may have to apply outside of your comfort zone & never give up!

    it depends on your background. All my classmates are working as LPN in LTC because they were CNA before LPN .
    I dont have any medical experience.
    I live in northern NJ.

    I know most agencies hires new grads. Or nursing home or assisted living. But they don't really train you if you work for an agency

    It took me awhile to find a job after I graduated in late 2008. I was pregnant till spring 2009 so that didn't help either! Anyways I landed my first job in jan 2010 at a LTC in a shoddy part of town but it was experience! Just keep pushing someone will give you a chance, I promise!
