I can tell you the role of the LPN in the hospital and LTC since I have worked in both. I dont know about other states but NJ its hard to find a Job as an LPN in a hospital, the ones they do have are underpaid and really just a considered a CNA that can pass meds. In long term care you have more of a Nurse title and responsibility. You do the treatments, med passes, assessments, call doctors up, write incident reports, and much more. I am in long term care right now and I like it. I also like the hospital because you learn alot more there, but I make twice as much in LTC so I will stay there for now.
