    In Bangor, jobs prospects for LPN's exist primarily in nursing homes and home health. Neither of the major hospitals in Bangor hire LPNs. Since Portland is a bigger city, there are more opportunities, but most of the major hospitals in Portland (like Maine Med) don't hire LPNs anymore either. I can't speak for all of them though, since I'm more familiar with Bangor.

    I am actually looking for long term care facilities, or homehealth jobs. So that would be fine.
