    Most hospitals want at least 1 year experience in the speciality you are applying for. Some would count your LPN experience, but you would have to discuss that with your recruiter

    most people would say at least one year in your specialty area. you will be expected to know what you need to know. there will be no teaching going on.

    I was a traveler as an LPN when I graduated from RN school. I was told I had to quit traveling for at least a year to get experience as a RN even if I wanted to continue to travel in the same specialty I was already working in as a LPN traveler.
