I'm currently living in Orlando, FL and ill be graduating as an LPN this December. My goal is to become an LPN and bridge for my RN- BSN after having at least a year of experience in the field.
This isn't the first nursing thread I read on about LPNs and what the job market is like, and can't help but notice how many nurses are complaining and evidently work in nursing homes primarily.
After I graduate I plan on moving out to Brooklyn, NY.
What's the starting rate of pay for LPNs?
What should I do before I graduate (while I'm in school) to help me have a better opportunity of getting hired?
Are LPNs only being hired at nursing homes? I'd like to be in a hospital honestly, particularly Maternity if possible.
Don't get me wrong if nursing homes is all LPNs can have then so be it.
Someone help! Before I pull my hair out here.
