Hello everyone. I might be moving to the AFB in September and was wondering if there are any prospects for LPNs here? I am also looking for LPN-RN bridge programs as well. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
There is not a whole lot. There are a couple of nursing homes here that seem like they are always hiring. You may find a position at a doctor's office and sometimes the base hires. Another option is getting a Colorado license and working in the Fort Collins area. Hope that helps
They have a program here at the community college. I think it is called Laramie County Community College. I decided not to go that route because of the time it would have taken for me to get in. I wanted to be done sooner, so I went with Excelsior College (online). You would have to do what works for you.
We just moved here less than a year ago. Are you a military spouse?
My husband is in the USAF. I was looking into Excelsior as well but with us having to move all the time I don't want to end up in a place where I can't utilize my license. I will Check out that CC. Oh and one more question ( sorry) what is the average pay there for an LPN? We are leaving from Alaska and the starting pay out here for new grads is in the low 20's.
There is FRCC in Fort Collins which is only 40 miles away - I would check with them about LPN to RN. And if I were you I would get licensed in CO and NE as well and work agency - since you are in prime location to work in those states as well as WY. Much better pay.
