Check out the jobs available on sites like Indeed and you'll get a good idea. The big hospitals like Seton & St. David's hire mostly BSN only because they are after magnet status. *Source: My husband is an RN, BSN at a reputable hospital and they are actively hiring BSN majority of the time. Baylor hires LVNs to work in their clinics. Dialysis clinics, ARC, doc offices, psych hospitals (especially ASH), the state of TX, correctional facilities, rehab hospitals, home health, LTC, LTACH's like Cornerstone Round Rock, wound care companies, etc all hire LVNs. I got a job in March which was 3 months after graduation and is fast even by RN standards. I got a job after my professor recommended me to my employer because they knew the hiring manager and will recommend high performing students.
I work in an inpatient rehab hospital on the night shift, three 12 hour shifts per week. I make $24/hr (more experienced nurses make more than me) and plan to go PRN soon as I go back to school and parent my infant. PRN makes more bc you forfeit benefits. It can get crazy, people code like at any other hospital, med pass is busy, I handle PICC lines, IV antibiotics, blood draws (both peripheral sticks and PICC blood draws), wound care, catheterizations, NG tubes, PEG tubes, trachs, respiratory issues, ostomies, pysch, post motor vehicle accident pts, stroke pts, MI pts, post surgical pts, with a heavy med/surg like ratio. I went from starting zero IVs in school to doing them at least once per week at work, especially when a patient rips them out. I do everything an RN does except start blood infusions and DC PICC lines. Everyone I graduated with has found a job by now.
I'm going back for my RN simply bc the pay is greater and I can go work in the ER. I prefer the critical care scene. But the experience I'm gaining is priceless.
