volunteer at a nursing home (lots of LPNS work there), or hosptial.. and well you see them working and many times they will let you watch as they work if you're volunteer. and as volunteer you are in perfect position to network so by the time you finish school you may well have a job waiting. As for just going into facility for shadowing that's not possible due to liability, the facility must run a background check, reference check etc for all people that's alllowed inside.
