Fiance and I are thinking of moving out of state. We want to go somewhere we can enjoy the outdoors Colorado peaks our interest. We figure we move out when we have nursing licenses. Fiance is in an LPN program and I am possibly doing the program next spring. Curious is the market strong for LPNs in Colorado?

Also do most places like the northeast hire BSN nurse's over ADN nurse's?

Appreciate any insight or feedback.

To be honest, due to a lot nursing schools in this state, the market is flooded for nurses, particularly new grads. The only places that I saw LPNs working were LTC and short-term rehab facilities. There also might be jobs in doctor's offices, but I do not have first-hand knowledge about those locations. As for hospital jobs (if that is what you are looking for), many hospitals are now requiring BSN for new applicants. Good luck!
