I can't believe how hard it is finding a job as a new LPN
I've been licensed for 3 months now and haven't had a single interview. I've spoken to the other women that I had graduated with and very FEW people have found employment, and If they did it was only 2-3 days a week with ZERO benefits. LPN's cannot work as CNA's, tech's, or any other job that is below your licensure in Maryland. I just want to warn other people who are considering going to school to become an LPN. I honestly believed when I started school that I wouldn't have any problem finding a job after graduation. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade but if you are a new graduate, please don't get your hopes up like I did. After the past couple months of stress and frustration I finally decided to see an Army recruiter and I'm so happy I did! Going in as an LPN I may be able to skip bootcamp and attend a 2 week Army ettiquette course, go to some training and start as an E-4. I'm determined to enlist as soon as possible!
