I don't know about the program you are inquiring about, but I can say that LPN opportunities strongly depend on where you live. From reading this forum, I am seeing that many LPNs have difficulty obtaining hospital positions, but this doesn't seem to be everywhere. However, many people feel that there is limited growth in remaining an LPN. Opportunities are usually found in nursing homes, assisted living, home care, corrections, rehab centers to name a few.
Some LPNs feel that they are doing close to the same job as RNs, therefore, return back to school to receive the recognition, pay and opportunities that RNs have available to them. I believe what I would do is start inquiring what the job market is like for LPNs, are they hiring at all, the pay, etc, and see from there. Also, see if your state accepts Excelsior because many LPNs have become RNs through this on line program, and there are more LPN to RN bridge programs making it easier for the practical nurse to transition to registered nursing.
Best of luck to you!
