I attend community college and looks like my gpa is not going to get me into the RN program. I thought about applying for the LPN course, but where are the jobs? I only see RN positions. Where do LPN's work? Should I apply for the LPN program or should I work on my gpa?

I think its a crock when they encourage people to re-take classes to up their gpa but it you have other pre-reqs that you need to take and they would help your average thats something to consider. For me prior to taking classes over I would apply for the LPN program if you think you could get in. In Balto. like most places the majority of jobs are in LTC however I did clinicals at a couple of hospitals that utilize LPNs including Harbor, Kernan and Union. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I've been an LPN for 12 years and have never worked LTC. I have worked at Good Samaritan and Union Memorial.
