- 0Dec 10, '12 by heidibelle1Hi, I haven't had any luck yet and I live in the Albany, NY (upstate NY) area. I graduated in June 2012 and received my license in October 2012. I've had a handful of interviews but no takers! I've applied to a number of doctor offices, nursing homes, and home health agencies as LPN's have been phased out of hospitals here. One home health agency said you need a year experience and offered me a home health aide position which doesn't count as one year experience towards an LPN position with them. I think with so many new graduates from a number of LPN programs in the area, limited jobs for LPN's and a bad economy it's hard to get a job right now period. When I look at the want-ads here, there are 10 RN jobs for every LPN job. I'm starting to get discouraged and decided to go to a local community college to start on my RN.
