Recently Graduated from LPN school and now i'm looking for a job.
Does anyone know of any agencys currently hiring LPNs?
Doesn't matter where in the 5 boroughs since i'm willing to travel.
As a new grad it is wise to get some experience before hiring on with agencies they usuall ask for at least 1 year.Be very mindful of the ones that will hire without experience.You are out there on your own think about how hard you worked for your license just a word for the wise congrats and good luck with the job hunt.
@ Tatiana, I went to Metropolitan Learning Institute in Jersey City, NJ. I live in Brooklyn, the commute was about 40 Mins. 4 train to Fulton street then the Path train which was about a 7 min ride, So worth it. Great school with great teachers. Classes stat every 4 Months.
About Advance Care staffing, i went in to fill out an application, but i didn't have all my documents. I will give them in tomorrow and i will update.Starting at the nursing home provided was $24 an hr, NO BENEFITS.
I am considering volunteering at a hospital probably once or twice a wk to gain experience n start applying again
Volunteer yes, expect a job no. I'm volunteering at a hospital in NYC almost a year. Was told from various places it was not considered experience. You'll gain experience talking to patients and making beds. Otherwise it's usually nothing hands on cause you're not covered under the hospitals' insurance.
