I am coming to the half way point in my RN program and will be eligible to take the LPN boards. I currently work as a private duty caregiver, and was wondering if anyone has any advice for doing that as an LPN and more specifically in WI. I have read on here that experience as an RN is highly enouraged before doing private duty, but what about as an LPN? As an LPN I won't be able to get hospital experience and with the way jobs are going around here-the Madison area, I don't forsee getting an LPN job in LTC etc with having no healthcare experience. So does anyone have any advice about getting a PDN job as an new LPN? I know I have read about professional homecare providers...how easy is it to actually use their boards to get a job? I have seen the same jobs on there for quite a while. I would just like something that pays a little more while I finish school since I will have my LPN, and I love the private duty job I have now so I was hoping that doing another private duty job would be a good option. Thanks in advance for any advice!!
