I am going to be starting school this January for PN. After tireless hours, and countless pre-requisites at local community college's, for Nursing (RN)...I just now have been accepted into a Nursing program (LPN) at a local school in Kentucky.
I am very thankful for this opportunity. However, I DO want to work in LTC after I graduate, but am hearing many rumors that my future job will be phased out in such Long Term Care/Nursing Home's.
I don't see why this would be, why schools would still be offering a program for students that won't have a career after they graduate. I see LTC facilities still hiring LPN's in years to come due to the significant less pay they have to offer them, rather than an RN with more education and a higher degree.
