  1. LPN program at Dutchess BOCES

  2. Is being an LPN REALLY that bad?
    I have a job I love in homecare. The case I have will not hire an RN - only an LPN because the job is relatively easy. They don't want to pay for an RN - & honestly it isn't necessary. I love both...

  4. What Do You LIKE About Being an LPN?
    I think an LPN education is one of the best & most overlooked options for both men & women - young & not so young. I spent a ton of money on a bachelors degree in psychology & later in life (age 35)...

  5. Emedny question from longtime lurker!
    I'm hoping your interpretation of what you're hearing is wrong. I think they mean that you can't get reimbursed in those settings. To the best of my knowledge I don't see any reason at all why you...

  15. RN told she will now get LPN wages
    I am an LPN who gets reimbursed thru Medicaid - & the case I have does NOT pay for an RN - so I can only assume if an RN wanted the case they'd get LPN pay. The case is comparatively easy.

    You don't find a supervisor - you find the case. In NY they may be advertised in the Pennysaver or Craigslist. For pediatrics it's the parents usually who most likely will be putting the ad in.
