    LPN's can work in the OR and telemetry in hospitals. I say this because I work with an LPN on a telemetry floor and there is an LPN in the OR on this board.

    So, the answer is yes.

    We use LPNs in hospice.

    I've worked with LPNs in Same Day Surgery, Psych, and even Cath Lab.

    I am an LPN/LVN who has worked in the specialties of psych nursing and rehabilitation nursing.

    LPNs are also utilized in day surgery, hospice, home health, public health, subacute nursing, med-surg nursing, oncology, and other specialties. However, LTC and geriatrics are the waves of the future for LPNs.

    I hope to work for somebody who throws lots of money at me. Is that a specialty?

    I used to work with LPN's when I worked in pediatrics, have also seen LPN's in some ER's I've worked in- taking care of the more "minor care" type patients.
