Yay! I just finished school today so I start the job hunt. I believe that persistence beat resistance so it's nice to see that people are getting jobs. It's a little disheartening to see all the posts of people who are looking for jobs and can't find them.

I currently have a ca lvn license, and live in ga, planning to relocate to ca, looking for a job there, but the job market sounds discouraging. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could start on finding a job w/o experience as an lvn, but have experience as a cna. thanks

Hi CaliLVN,

It's inspiring to hear that you found work right away! I am currently waiting to hear from BVNPT in CA as well...I graduated the end of Aug 2012 and I found out they are taking at least 6 weeks to process apps :eek: are there any tips that helped you land your first job? I am also bilingual and have an A.A. degree but not in nursing. It is stressing me out to see all job postings ask for at least 1 year exp! I need to start working asap (hopefully pass my boards on first try!!)

I'm in the Ontario area, so if your employer has sevaral offices or not too close to downtown LA, PLEASE let me know, it would be GREATLY appreciated !!

Thanks,

Angie G.

Hello, I just read your post in 2010, and now is 2013. I just passed my nclex an trying to find a job. I do speak few languages (russian, lithuanian and english). I believe you have been working for a while. If your facility or you know someone who will consider new grad, please please let me know.

Thank you.

Don't worry guys you will find a job. It might take a little while but you can start looking even before you're licensed. I have been an LPN for 7 years and work an awesome job with awesome pay (for an LPN) and am currently in school to get my RN degree ( I graduate in June 2016). You have to start little by little maybe not getting paid as well as you would like but the more you learn the better it will look when you hook that job you always wanted. DONT GIVE UP GUYS!!! LPNs are AWESOME!!!!!:nurse:
