Nursing student (LPN)

  1. HI, I will be graduating in April. I have been in the night/weekend nursing program in TN. What is the job outlook for LPNs? So many people have been telling me they will get rid of LPNs all together. Why?

    Welcome to the site, Jaquita! Rumors of LPN extinction have been flying around for years, but it just hasn't happened. Several of our most active members here are LPN's or LVN's.

    Good luck to you! LPNs will always be in high demand here in Long Term Care. New grads are having trouble getting hospital jobs however. I haven't heard of LPNs being phased out.
