Apr 22, '11Well, I've had about 3 more interviews since my last post and I FINALLY GOT A JOB!
I am working at a substance abuse/psychiatric facility, but it's the field I actually want to be in as an RN. I mean, I would have been happy with ANY job as an LPN, but I lucked out getting a job in the field I wanted. It's only PRN, but it's a start and I am getting some experience.
I just wanted to encourage other LPNs who are still looking to KEEP ON LOOKING..don't give up! You will find something eventually. Good luck and God bless!

Nov 18, '11Quote from AshleyAI am going to graduate the LPN program in December 2011. I'm also scared because I feel that I haven't had enough hands-on experience in the clinical setting to be on my own after just a few shifts of training in the LTC setting. How much training time is typically given to a new LPN grad in LTC setting?They need to train you. Don't let them cheat you by not getting enough training before you are on your own.
