    Caregiving is paid healthcare experience, but it is not licensed nursing experience. If you need the money now, I would go ahead and work as a caregiver for the time being. I assume you are in California, which has a horrid LVN job market right now. Good luck to you.

    Yes, I am from California. Having really hard time finding a job. But thank you for the response. I needed some reassurance.
