Philly hospitals still hiring LPN's???

  1. Hi all,

    Just wondering if the hospitals in Philly are hiring LPN's with experience? If so...what is the pay rate?

    Most of the hospitals DO NOT hire LPNs for floor nursing; LPNs were phased out years ago; they may hire for clinic nursing.

    I have not seen that many floor positions in hospitals for LPNs lately.

    Philly has a ton of nurses, namely RNs where the pool is to go for experienced RNs; even the rehab hospital that I used to work for as a LPN looks for experienced RNs.

    LPNs work in clinics, LTC facilities as well as in home health settings.
    I suggest looking on Internet job boards for current LPN positions.

    Best wishes!

    I'm fairly certain Holy Redeemer Hospital still hires LPNs.

    HUP and Main Line Health still hire LPNs. Mainly for outpatient, hospice, and rehab
