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.

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.
