LPN SUCKS , I WOULDNT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE, SORRY. i now have 25ooo. debty to pay off and almost impossible to pay it off!

Maybe because you have a bad attitude and don't know how to spell? I don't feel sorry for you. You get back what you put into your profession. I made $72,000 last year as a travel nurse. I am an LPN with 12 years of experience, and LOVE my life!

Where I work now they pay 18.50.

Hi...I saw your post about going on for your RN after getting your LPN and wanted to let you know about a fast track method to get your RN. Some people don't know about this but it's a great way to get that RN in a faster, more flexible, and less expensive way. Look into Achieve Test Prep, the classes are all taught by RN's, and you can attend on one of their campuses or attend class online virtually. You basically test out of classes, so you learn the material, but don't have to sit through semesters of classes. It's NOT self-study, the classes are live. Look at www.achievetestprep.com/info. Best of luck to you!

But I don't know do anyone else know the job situation for Lpn in south eastern nc.

Hi Chris, I am currently an LPN, however I just graduated with my ADN. I live in Michigan and there are quite a few jobs available here. Most of the jobs are in home health or long-term care. Pay for LPNs is typically $17.50 to $20.00 per hour in home health for new graduates. In long-term care the wage is about the same to start and goes up to around $26.00 per hour after several years of working. I would not get my degree online, I would check with any local community collages and see what programs they offer. It is important to see what their pass rate for NCLEX is as well as how many students graduate from their program. I did not check these statistics out before I started PN school and the school I attended had a 100% NCLEX pass rate, but their graduation rate was less the 25%. I assume you are asking about night school or online classes as you plan to work while in school. Depending on the school you go to working full-time may be difficult. Nursing school requires a lot of study time outside of the classroom. Most of the students that failed out of the program I was enrolled in did so because they tried to work full-time and go to school full-time, which is not good unless you have to. Practical nurse school in Ohio and Michigan is 3 semesters, that being said, there are often times prerequisites you must take before you can even apply for nursing courses. This is something else you should check on before you commit to any college. I had to take a full year of classes before I could even apply to the practical nurse program. Many colleges also require you to take, and pass, an entry test, in my case it was the HESI. I would also check into this and buy a study guide to help to prepare for the test. Entry into programs is often competitive, those with the best scores get the seats. If you have a job in mind for after graduation you may want to talk to them and see which school they recommend as they often times hire graduates from certain schools. Craig

Thank you very much for your reply. What is an ADN? Thanks for the info about not doing it online. Does the school you went to have a branch down here?

Hi Chris, ADN is Associate Degree in Science - Nursing, basically what you need to be an RN. Hopefully, this will be your next step in your nursing career. The school I attended was a local community college, as is the school I attended to receive my associates degree. If you are able to get into an ADN program this would be your best career choice in my humble opinion. However, if you are like me, I needed to get a into nursing quickly to keep an income stream flowing, so I went to be an LPN first then continued on to be an RN. I would just Google "Atlanta area community colleges" and see what comes up. You can then click on each of their respective links and do the research as mentioned in my first reply. A very important step is to see what kind of financial aid you qualify for. The first step is to fill out your FAFSA at FAFSA.gov as every college will need this information to see how much financial aid you qualify for. You will have the option to select schools to send the information to after completing the form. Send it to every college you think you may want to attend so when you do decide they will already have all the needed information and it will expedite your enrollment into the program. All of this research will pay off in the long run, stick with it Chris, nursing is a very challenging yet fulfilling career! Craig

I've been an LPN for 25 years have made real good money. Over $20 for the most part in Florida. Semi retired now and settled down to private duty. You'll always have a job as a nurse. If your still young enough go for LPN and advance as you feel ready. You can advance from an LPN to RN to Nurse Practioner. MA, can't do this as easily.

NYC Dee said: LPN can make a great living, I started out as a Business School Graduate LPN was a second career for me. I have made on 32 hour work weeks more than 65,000. It is very annoying when people say "are you going for your RN" LPN was a choice for me. I have worked as a Med Nurse, Staff Nurse, Supervised you name it for 20 years. I am now in the Maryland area and not sure where to work part-time and go at an easier pace...thoughts?

you made 65,000 a year in nyc?

Shemika in Atlanta, Georgia said: For LPN's it really depends on the employer and how much they're willing to pay. I just recently graduated from school as a Medical Assistant , no luck with finding a job. So now I'm enrolled in the LPN program. At least with lpn you will be able to find a job. After talking with several employers 22.00 is the amount I've been told. But look at this work at an Nursing Home for a year, then go with some of the travel companies, which offer contracts 30.00 hour. Or some of the hospitals will hire LPN on the Med- Surge floor. So do your research before you make up your mind, cause alot of people think LPN don't make money,but yes they do. It's all about who you, and who's the employer.

Thanks sooooo very much. You respones helped alot. Alot of people are saying go for your RN. But i Dont want to be a RN. I have other dreams and goals I need and want to accomplish. I feel like becoming a LPN will do for now, having a 4year old son and all. Thanks so much I am going to keep going forward with my LPN. Almost finished!!!!

donnamusic in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma said: I want to let others know that I live in Oklahoma City , Oklahoma.
The LPN course for 10 1/2 months is $5000.
The MA course at a health career college is $15,000, for 10 months.
To get your degree for MA at the same career college, is $25,000.
People are going to these places, paying tons of money, getting loans,
etc. and receiving in return for these high tuition rates, a very poor
education . You cannot even call it an education. Alot of the work you
do yourself and there is no lecturing going on in alot of the courses.
There are also so many students in the lab classes that a student competes
to practice and demonstrate the skills with all the other students; that is, if there is enough time to do so. There are too many students in these classes per teacher. Anyone that wants to start any medical career, be careful. We are not
getting what we pay for but more importantly, what our poor patients deserve.

AGREED, FOR I.T. OR NURSING LINCOLN TECH INSTITUTE / LTI IS HORRRRIBLE. BETTER OFF FLUSHING 20K DOWN THE TOILET!!

I've been an LPN since 1995. (NYC) Started in substance rehab at 16 per hr then 18. Went to 20 an hour in 1998. Worked in a doctors office 2000 to 2008 started at 20 and left making 28 per hr. 2008 started doing Care Management at 70,000 a year. 2010 started working in quality 32 to 45 per hr. Look into HEDIS. The pay is great. The last two jobs recruiters contacted me about jobs in NY were paying 90 and 92,000 a year. And yes this is as an LPN! I couldn't because I had just relocated to VA. I've just started my job search here and an looking at maybe 28 to 29 per hr in quality or medical management/utilization review. Keeping my fingers crossed. Health insurance companies pay more. I haven't done hospital work and did two weeks in a nursing home early in my career and decided it's not for me. So there is money to be made as an LPN. Contact recruiters, they may have listings for jobs in non traditional nursing that may not be posted on sites.

I have been wanting to get into quality/ medical management but due to having no experience it's been very hard. I have seen Hedis but once again no experience. If you know of any companies that will train please let me know. Iam also looking into Health insurance companies as well, working in nursing homes and hospitals isn't really what I want either. Any info would be appreciated.

Lauriedav in Lyndhurst, New Jersey said: Hi I live in New Jersey - very close to Manhattan. I have been looking into the LPN program- I am 49 years old and run a business from home so I will more then likely be attending an evening program unless I can work something out. Anyway, I have two questions 1. Has anyone heard of or attended Merit Technical Institute? For some reason you cannot get student loans through this program - I know they have a provisional accredidation right now - their schedule works great for me but I want to make sure that the school is safe and sound. The other school I'm considering in Eastwick - they program sounds great but they are expensive.

How hard is it right now to get LPN jobs in NJ?

attend Eastwick, I have been an LPN x 18 yrs, I have heard of Eastwick not the other. Becareful
