I am currently attending an 18 month LPN program and really enjoying it! My son has a clubbed foot (that we knew about even before he was born via ultra sound - technology rocks!!!) so, needless to say we have spent quite a bit of time at the ped ortho office! While this is unfortunate, it has also been an eye opener for me. I LOVE ortho...and am very interested in going into this field after I graduate.
My question(s) is:
are there many LPN's in this area? i have plans to continue on to RN but not immediatly.
and -- do you have any advice when it comes to applying for jobs in this field as an LPN?
what are the pros and cons to working in this area?
thank you all for taking the time for reading this (and hopefully replying) and also for all that you do. Noah (my 19 month old) LOVES going for his check ups at the ortho because all the nurses and rad techs are soooooo wonderful!!!!!! he even likes the DR (grins)!
