LPN's in Mass Hopsital

  1. I will be starting LPN school in Sept. at Quincy College . I plan on doing the RN bridge program immediatly afterwards but will be working as an LPN in between.

    So to my question is directed toward the LPN's working in the hosptials. I heard the LPN's in hospitals are "glorified CNA's" and that LTC is the way to go as an LPN. Is this true?

    I want to go to a hospital directly because that's where I want to work after RN and would like to get expericence / seniority and hopefully some tuition assistance.

    Any thoughts?

    IM an LPN in Ma Some hospitals do hire LPNs and some places do treat us as aides. Not so in Western Mass. There are certain limitations that we have to abide by, but mostly depends on policies. LTC is the best way to go. Lots of facilities will hire LPNs in managment positions. I have been a facility supervisor. LPN s can be unit managers do MDS's but not the Raps (lol) RN or LPN its all the same . Comes down to qaulity care of the patients. Good Luck
