Question for all of you..
I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the career advice forum, sorry if I put it in the wrong place.
Now for my question: Is it ok to continue to work as an LPN when you have a registered nurse license?
I have asked my state BON and the vague answer that I got was that as long as the LPN license is current, it's okay.
My issue is with scope. Say I'm working as an LPN at a LTC after I'm licensed, and that facility currently can't bring me on as an RN. In the interim, I choose to stay in my position and continue making money as I search for an RN job, which could take months. While on the job, do I just stay within my scope of practice or what? Is that left to facility policy?
Any insight from anyone who has experience with this would be greatly appreciated.
