lpns in hospitals?


I was just wondering, does anyone know if hospitals hire LPN's in mass? I am almost done with school, and i intend on going on to get my RN but that wont start until a year from now- until then the bills need to be paid, and its a great opportunity to get some experience under my belt...eventually id like to work in the special care- level 2 nursery.Ive had clinicals on the medsurg floor at a hospital- bubt they dont hire LPN's. I was just wodnering if anyone knew of any specific hospitals that may hire me, under the supervision of an RN...

I believe MGH still hires LPNs. That's the only hospital I can think of but I could be wrong.

MGH does not hire LPN for inpatient nursing. Spaulding, NE Sinai, Braintree, and Kindred does as well as the VA.

The Lahey position is in the outpatient clinic. You can find similar jobs at MGH or BWH- sll clinic settings.

Psych Hospitals people. Hire LPNs like crazy. Psych is not that bad. Then again I have worked (not as a nurse) at a psych hospital for 3+ years.

Unless psych nursing is your goal. In my opinion psych nursing is a good place to start off and a good place to finish up.
