Are LPN's being phased out? - Page 24Register Today!
- Aug 17, '12 by nmgthenurseI have been an LPN for 4 years and i have heard the same rumor. My opinion is that there is a shortage of nurses, i don't think they would phase out anybody. Here in Tampa they started to replaced RN with LPN for budget reason. Lpn are not going anywhere.
- Aug 18, '12 by turnforthenurseRNThe hospital I work at now doesn't hire LPNs anymore. We have a few LPNs working on the med-surg units and a few in the ER, but that's about it. A hospital I used to work at used to have a lot of LPNs but most of them got laid off :/
