Hospitals vs. Nursing Homes

  1. Hi, I am just beginning my schooling to become an LPN and am wondering, which is the best place to work? I have been told positive and negative about both types of facilities and am hoping some of you experienced nurses can give some advice. Many thanks

    Around here we don't have LPNs in our hospitals, unless they are left over from older policies when they were used in acute care more. We have one LPN left at ours, we don't hire LPNs anymore.

    In CA LVNs do acute care work as well as LTC, even home care. Which one you want really depends on your desires. I would hate LTC work but I know others who absolutely love it. There's benefits to both and there are problems with both.
