1. Hi, I am currently a medical assistant and hoping to start class for LPN in 2013 (my entrance exam is in two weeks) I am curious about being a LPN in NYC (the 5 boroughs specifically) Are you currently employed, how long did it take to find a job and also do you have any idea of the average salary range? I have been in the medical field for 8 years now and am looking to further my education and hopefully a job that is more long term and stable. I've also heard that it is easier to get a job in a nursing home rather than a hospital. Im wondering if this is true. I am just trying to figure out what I should expect once I complete my course (its a 1 year program) Thank you for all advice, tips, help and conversation. I would greatly appreciate any input.
