I know that everyone has heard this story many times before but...I am a student LPN with one semester left and I am already seriously discouraged about my porspects of finding a job after I am done. I live in MN and from what I have heard you can't get a hospital job as an LPN here, they only want RN's. Of course there is always a nursing home, but like many, that is not the route I want to take. Plus I am hearing that as a new nurse I will have to take any hours available and it seems that a lot of LPN jobs are part-time. This defeats the entire purpose of me going to school...to make more money, be there more for my kids, and get away from jobs with bad hours! I am really worried that I have invested all this money and I will be stuck in the same predicament I am in now! Does anyone know of any other jobs I could apply for when I am done that aren't neccessarily nursing positions, but still in the healthcare field? The goal is definately to get a nursing job but at this point I need all the options I can get! I can not be stuck without a job when I am done with school!
