Does UPMC hire LPN's in their hospitals?

Hello-

I'm trying to get a job at UPMC and I would really like to work in the hospital, preferably Med/Surg. I am a new LPN, so I know this is a high reaching goal, but am I wasting my time trying?

I've seen (a few) job postings on their site for LTC and Home Health positions, but never for in hospital LPN's. I really don't feel confident enough yet to do Home Health, and I would prefer to not do LTC...(I worked as CNA in LTC)

I really think that for me Med/Surg would be the best place to learn as much as possible, as I do plan to continue on to RN. Anyone know if they do hire LPN's in the hospitals? Anyone have suggestions for other ideas for LPN's who really want to learn?

I am new to Pittsburgh and really struggling to find work! I'm open to suggestions!!!

Thanks!

Ask them on their Facebook career site, they are usually quick to respond.

Thanks for your suggestions... I went to the UPMC East Job Fair today, and as I suspected, they are not hiring any new grads because its a brand new facility. The recruiting person told me UPMC "ocasionally" hires LPN's in the hospital, but rarely a new grad LPN.Phooey!! :'( Well, at least I know for sure now!
