LPN job outlook in Mass.

  1. For current LPN's I am a prenursing student for the LPN program at NSCC. I was wondering if any nurses have jobs other than LTC. I really don't want to work in one because I hated it working as a CNA for 2 years.

    I'm moving this thread to the Massachusetts Nurses Forum where, hopefully, it will accrue more responses that will help you out. Good luck!

    I'm not sure about the entire state, but on Cape Cod I have no doubt that you would find a job in a SNF.

    Saint Vincent's Hospital in Worcester, MA hires LPN. I am sure there are others, too.

    I've been an LPN in MA for over 7 years now. While the majority of positions are in SNF's there are other options. Home/Community health, MD office, Clinics, Wound consultants, specialists offices,major insurance company's hire LPN's. Too bad you don't live on the south shore, I'd have had a job for you! :spin:

    I honestly don't think you should bother being an LPN. as an old girl of 26 years, i feel thereis nothing for us usually but to be everyone's victim. The LPNs I know don't see any jobs, but nh's.

    Hey Hopeslayer -
    I'm a new LPN grad on the Cape, can you suggest a good SNF to start at while taking classes to go back to get my RN? Feel free to PM me with any suggestions - I'd really appreciate it!
    Thanks!
