    Definitely LTC! You will hear negative things of course, but you will hear it about any field. Skilled is where I learned the most and it really has prepared me to work in other capacities. I recently picked up a PRN job in AL, have 8 hours of orientation at most before I was thrown on the floor but I have been fine because my foundation is skilled. I am actually bored in AL and miss skilled lol! I am returning to my bridge program in the summer and once I graduate I still plan to stay in LTC so I think it's a fantastic place to start. It may be hard initially to find a job. I know you don't want to her negativity but I also wish someone would have prepared me for the reality that noone wants to hire a newbie LPN because they can hire a new RN for the same price per hour right now due to the hospital job shortage. Just take whatever you can get! Even if you have to work 4 PRN jobs. It took my nearly a year after graduating to secure a full time job and I was an STNA prior. This wait time is pretty normal for LPN's around here as well. Good luck to u!
