Don't expect the best job in the best facility immediately. Especially if yo have no prior training as a CNA or MA. Try night shift in long term care. I personally don't believe a new nurse should work day shift anywhere. If you think long term care is not for you, then your wait may be longer. Don't get discouraged the nursing field changes monthly, by next month facilities may be begging for Nurses. Plenty of places take on new Nurses, just apply, apply and apply. I am not from you area so unfortunately I have no leads for your are. Good Luck!

You need to work on your communication skills..that usually helps to land a good job and be treated with respect.

Many LTC facilities hire Nurses for PRN work (as Needed), Prn nurses are often offered a couple of more dollars on the hour. Get trained for a few days and then are called in on a as needed basis. Often times you end up working full time hours if willing and available. This is a great way to get you foot in the door. The one hang is...if you have no experience in the health care field and/or you are not a fast learner, PRN is not the way to go because you will get no further training after your initial orientation and may work on a different unit each time you are called in with deveral days or maybe weeks between each shift.

UpsetLPN88 in Columbus, Ohio

63 months ago

Hi everyone. I'm having problems finding a job as an LPN as well.
I took my NCLEX in Oct 09. I had almost 3 years experience as an LPN in ltc before I became a nurse. Also for a short time I went to OSU's hospital (including James Cancer Center) through agency as an STNA. I'm also MED-IV certified. I don't care what job I get I just want one. I always hoped for a night shift ltc job (which supposedly no one else wants but I still can't get). It's so frustrating. I put so much money into LPN school to be nowhere. As a kid I promised myself I would go to school and do something with my life. By the time I get to be an adult and go to school, the economy tanks and there are no jobs. I'm so depressed. I sit at home and wonder if I should end it all. I can't go talk to someone about this because the Ohio Board of Nursing has something against a nurse with depression. I don't know what to do at this point.

There are a lot of us out here who have spent thousands on a adult education just to work in a field that doesn't match the degree. Life goes on, we all have debt & then we go out & find jobs in order to make ends meet. I made it outside of my field & make as much $$$ without a major college degree as the ones with. How? By starting down at the bottom & working my way up the corp ladder. Some make it in the field that they spent $$$$ on, others cannot possibly wait for the career to come knocking. Find a job that can enjoy & continue to search. Try Home Health Agencies, Nursing Homes, Long Term Care Facilities, etc.,. Good luck and press on. There's life outside of nursing. Try KCI Inc, Hill-Rom, Johnson & Johnson for they hire nurses for promoting medical products & equipment. Think outside of the box.

Try applying as a trainee first. There are a lot of hospitals who accept trainees. Go train for a few months and try your luck again. That is the trend today since a lot of nurses graduate every year. Employers would appreciate a resume with a training experience or a volunteer work.

Goodluck with that!

wow, This is very depressing and discouraging. I am in florida got my LPN license in 8/2009 its end of 2/2010 still not even a call back. I regret taking the course and passing the NCLEX exam. There are so many jobs, but they will not hire a new grad.Must have 1yr lpn experience this is in all the hospitals,ltcs,alfs,agency hospice etc. I felt bad for classmates who did not pass the NCLEX, but this could drive someone insane after getting their license after 2 or three failed testing.

First see if Florida and New York are compact states. Some license obtained in one state can be used in many others. If not, contact the broad in the state you wish to practice, you will be required to pay additional fees but will have no problem obtaining a license in you chosen state without any additional schooling or test requirements.

I passed boards in May 2009..I am right with you ,no job, no experience..and apparently there are many LPNs in the same position. Its too bad that students aren't told what the end result will be before the time and money is spent..a real shame.
Keep looking.. maybe you'll be a lucky one;i'm ready to throw in the towel.Good luck to all the LPNS out there!!

I passed my LPN boards 1/10 after graduating 12/09. While I may not have been searching for very long, I find that jobs without at least 1 year experience are not available. How do you get exeperience if no one will hire you? The person who suggested thinking outside the box sounds like they have a great idea; however, this does not give us actual nursing experience. I feel that I wasted my time getting my LPN license and that the State wasted their money paying for it. I strongly urge anyone considering a nursing career to go for their RN license only. I gained valuable knowledge and skills studying to be a LPN only to be shut out of the profession by the job market.

Just because a company states 1 yr experience is required, don't like that stop you from applying. When ever possible apply in person.

Often times the truth is not what we like to hear. If you are having a hard time landing a job, the best advice is not necessarily being provided with yet another location to apply. Communication is important, just as being able to present a well written resume, dressing to impress and selling yourself to employers. Having a certificate, degree or license is not enough. Be prepared to be equipped with a full package. This is the real world and times are hard. Everything is not sugar and spice!

There is an abundance of LPN jobs here in Kentucky. I relocated from Indiana. To obtain a license in Kentucky I simply had to show proof of a Indiana license in good standing, back ground check, CPR, and pay approximately $270. After about ten days I received a Temporary card until a full background check was conducted then was sent a permanent Kentucky license. I live in Louisville Lpn's have plenty of opportunities here.

next time you go into a job interview and the interviewer says to you 'You have no experience'...you should ask them "If nobody is willing to give me a chance, how am I supposed to get the experience? At least with me, you can train me in the way that you want your nurses to go. With an experienced nurse, they have their own way of doing things which might not be the right way for your company." Just tell it to them like that. That's what I had to do when I first started out. Speaking from experience, I think your best bet is to start out in a hospital on the med surg floor, even if it's only a PRN position at first. Once you get a year of med surg experience, you can go pretty well anywhere because med surg is a variety of experiences. Good luck on your job search!

I agree with the comment about going for your Rn instead of lpn. I got my lpn had a job offer before i took my test, however i beleive you will have a better pick of job offers if you get your RN.Lpn jobs are very hard to find unless you work in ltc.

I know just what you mean I passed my NCLEX in 2009 and transfered my license from NY to PA. I have since been looking for work. A friend of mine got me a job working private duty for a trach and vent patient and I thought that would be great to get some experience under my belt. Seems that does not count as experience in PA since it is not through an agency so I am back at square one.

I don't know what to do at this point.

Trust God and believe in your abilities, think of all your accomplishments!!! Graduating nursing school and putting up with the uncaring arrogant instructors places you ahead of the game that is an accomplishment in itself. YOU passed the NCLEX Yey!!! do you know how many people don't pass... Keep trying, try an assisted living facility if you are still looking for a job, or a doctor's office.The pay is not that great, but you will receive great exposure.... I pray all wonderful things for you. Don't give up. You were called to be a Nurse, remember that. God Bless U.

honey, hang in there. What is for you to have, the good Lord will let you have. Just say "Lord, I put this burden in Your Hands" and let it go. Find a hobby u can enjoy which is affordable, and focus on that to take ur mind off the job hunt for a little bit. U need some "me" time every day. There are also some unusual jobs out there u might like. Try a pediatric office at first, or see if there is a travel position out there for you, or an allergy clinic, or lab work. There is also becoming a Paramedic. Trust me, LTC is not the best option. I worked LTC on the night shift for 10 years. You stay seriously understaffed...at my last job I was one nurse for 63 patients. Anyway, good luck and hugz!

I don't think you can even take the LPN boards after this time has gone by,contact your state board and find out? You only had so long to take and pass the board after graduation. Please find out and let the site know? I do not know how you could have worked as an LPN without having a license????
