I am getting ready to graduate and take LPN state boards in a couple of weeks. I've noticed many hospitals have gone to only hiring RN's. Well, I am going to be enrolling in classes to obtain my RN...but want to work as an LPN in the meantime...what's the deal with some hospitals not hiring LPN's??? And for those that do hire LPN's, what's the average pay in a hospital?Thanks for any input or advise!!
