Nursing Jobs for LPNs
The general impression of LPNs is that they work in long-term care facilities or nursing homes. While this is true to a point, many LPNs work in other areas of health care. Check out the LPN Cafe for more information. Get a sneak peak at where you could be working and view current LPN Jobs.
LPN Jobs in Research
Undeniably, researchers often look for RNs, particularly those with BSNs, for research assistant jobs. LPNs are hired to help monitor people who are participating in studies. These are facilities where the study subjects stay overnight. They are given the study drugs, and have blood and urine samples taken for analysis. If this sounds interesting to you, take an LPN program and become qualified to take part in exciting research projects.
LPNs Working in the Community
LPNs are also a vital part of community healthcare. Their hands-on experience makes them a valuable asset to official and private agencies within communities. Private home cases are also an option for LPNs, where they work with one patient for the duration of a contract. Sometimes, travel nurses are hired to accompany clients, ensuring that they continue to receive nursing care wherever they are.
Hands-On Nursing Training
Clinics can be interesting places to work because of the constant turnover of patients or clients. In some cases, they may request that nurses be RNs, but in many, LPNs are welcome. Making the transition from LPN to RN is easier than you think. Subscribe to our RSS feed of Healthcare News and don't miss our upcoming article about LPN to RN.
