how's your work as an LVN/LPN so far? i am going to take my NCLEX exam in a couple of moths and i hope i pass this time around. i am targeting to work in a hospital when i already get an experience but mostly they now only accept RNs. but in God's will, i can sneak in and work. goodluck to all of us! and let us keep the world safe! :)

Very few CA hospitals hire LVNs in CA. The new grad unemployment rate for nurses in CA is ~47%. The main reason is limits on scope of practice for LVN vs. RN is not conducive to LVNs practicing in an acute care hospital.

If you wish to secure employment in a hospital setting as a new grad with no experience, you will most likely need to leave the state of California to turn this career dream of yours into a reality.

The LVN job market in CA is so flooded that even the traditionally 'less desirable' positions in nursing homes and home health are hard to find for experienced nurses, and even harder for new grads to secure. My advice is to take whatever nursing job you can get and turn your nose up at nothing. Good luck to you.
