I've been accepted into the Grayson College LVN program this fall. Yeah!
Looking through these forums, I've gotten a little concerned about my job prospects. I plan to do either an on campus LVN-RN bridge program or Excelsior. But when I get out of school in a year I would really like to start in hospital work (med/surg). I know that many hospitals wont hire LVNs any more.
Are there any hospitals in the DFW area, particularly around Allen that hire LVN new grads?

I don't know about the LVN hospital job prospects in the area around Plano, Frisco, Allen, and McKinney.
However, Plaza Medical Center, John Peter Smith Hospital, Regency Hospital, Kindred Hospital, and Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital all hire LVNs. The first 3 are located in Fort Worth. Kindred Hospital has locations all over the DFW area, and so does Healthsouth.
My former coworker is an LVN who worked on the med/surg floor at Arlington Memorial Hospital back in 2005. She left the hospital setting because the nursing homes in the area were paying significantly more money. Arlington Memorial might still hire LVNs, so it doesn't hurt to try.
