    Beaumont hires LPNs as nurse techs only! But at least they hire them.

    DMC/Harper Hospital does and so does St. John Macomb/Warren. DMC tells the rate of pay also.

    I don't believe St. Mary's in the GR area do. Metro Health hires very few, Spectrum Health will sometimes.

    When I did clinics at Oakwood and Henry Ford Wyandotte, I saw LPNs on the med/surg units with their own assignments.

    That's why I said I have never "seen" one- I wasn't sure cause I don't work med-surg Thanks for the info. I saw them at North Oakland, but somebody told me they got bought out. So don't know now

    I have never seen one at HF main. We had one at HF Wyandotte on a med surg unit. There was one at Oakwood as well. However now they aren't hiring many LPN's any more. I don't know if the ones I mentioned are still at HFWH or Oakwood.

    A lot of the Upper Peninsula hospitals don't hire LPN's for their med/surg floors, will hire them to work in their clinics though.

    I don't know of any hospital in Northern MI hiring LPNs for the floor. There are some existing on the floor, but they are grandfathered in and will not be replaced with other LPNs if they leave or get their RN.

    Even the better LTCs are hiring more RNs (and only RNs at night) d/t the higher acuities, number of central lines in residents, etc.
