Hello fellow Lpns.I have been a Lpn here in Ct For six years and currentley at home with my small children(4) due to not bieng able to find work. There are some LTC positions open but i am so burned out with working at Facilitys with 40+ pts and being the only nurse on the floor i dare not work under these conditions any longer. The only other jobs open are agencey staffing LTC and you never no what you are going to walk into. I have sent resumes to diffrent areas in nursing but they prefer RN, any other LPN finding this problem?

I too live in Connecticut. I have been an LPN since June. I accepted a job at the nursing home I worked for 4 years as a CNA. I hate long term care. I went job hunting and every place I applied they offered me a job. I held out for the one I really wanted. I work in an ER in minor care in a hospital in Meriden. I love it. They aren't hiring right now but they might soon. This is a pilot program and they only hired 2 LPN's to work 3-11:30. I am not sure if they are going to hire for other shifts. Don't give up. There are other hospitals in the area that are doing the same and some hire in the clinics in the hospitals too. Good luck, Nancy

wow thats so great
I Live in Fairfield county and none of the hospitals hire lpns.I too dislike working in a SNF i did that type of nursing for over 4 years and i am just burned out i also have another lpn friend in the same situation.I get a lot of calls from staffing agencys because i have my resume posted on a job board, But they only staff LTC they get really surprised when i decline the offer cuz they are paying $30-32.50 an hr But to me driving to diffrent facilitys and getting 45 pts to 1 nurse, 3-4 aides and no help has just left me stressed forget it if you get a fall or someone bottoms out or if you get a admit i have left work at 3am sometimes from working 3-11. Only if things could get better......
