I became an LPN in June, my experience includes banking, medical (cna, billing coding). Also assisted in the instruction of CNA students while in nursing school. Anyway, each time I apply for a position the answer is you do not have enough experience (1 year). My last employer is being contacted but does not respond. I am considering using my CNA license to get in the door and see where it leads. I volunteer at a local free clinic now also. I also have an AARP card
I don't want to believe that age is a issue but it is possible. Just took a phlebotomy course for nurses, keeping the faith.
