I'm an RT, but the field is overflowing with therapists thanks to all the trade schools. I have applied at about 100 different places, and can't get hired anywhere. And that's including two years experience I have.

So i've been thinking about getting into our local LPN program, hoping I can find work with that. But I've seen a few threads about places not hiring new grads. I didn't want to go to school for another career where I need connections or alot of luck to get hired.

Is it worth it? Please be realistic. There are RT still hyping up the field over on their board. But most people know the RT is pretty much dead. I just don't want to take out a loan, and spend all the time and work to not be able to nearly immediately score a job.

Please Help me
Thank You

Hi,There are LPN jobs here in Illinois,but not many Rn positions...If u dont mind working in long term care,you might always have a job as a LPN,but the hospitals dont hire many LPNs here.My friend is a LVN in Houston and she does not have a problem finding work...she says the market is really good in San Antonio.
