Especially for night time?

Also does night shift have a lot of downtime where you can study?

The world is a BIG place and the job market varies greatly from one location to another.

There are a lot of opportunities for LPNs in home health, SNF's, and hospice. There are also opportunities at health departments and hospitals depending on your area. Study time however, I'm not sure.

I wouldn't count on down time or study time in any job especially as a new grad

How much might a 1 year LPN program cost?

Is personal care for the opposite sex part of the curriculum?

$3000-30,000+ depending if public or private-for-profit trade school.

Care of all potential patients from birth through end-of-life including "personal care" is mandated in all states. You don't get to pick your patients.

Your other posts state you want a job that you can get paid to read/surf the internet while you develop a blog. Don't go into healthcare then. Considerer baby sitting, dog siting, library assistant perhaps?
