looking into different types of nursing, any advise?

  1. hello, i am just curious, as i am soon to (hopefully) graduate, what the different areas of nursing a new lpn can work in? i am planning on contiuing my education and obtaining my rn and eventually i would like to work in maternity(thinking of a level 2/special care nursery). but until i obtain my rn, i was just wondering what would the best area be for me. i know lpn's work in pediatrics dr. offices(and other dr. offices)...you can do home care for children with special medical needs, correctional institutions, ltc & rehabs. does anyone know if i am missing any other areas lpn's work in? and what is agency? why is their pay so much higher than other areas? what is the difference between working for a dr. office(or any other area) and an agency?
