LPN jobs represent the largest healthcare occupation, with 2.3 million jobs.
And with the ever increasing need for health care workers more jobs will be expected for Registered nurses than for any other occupation. Job opportunities for LPN’s are expected to be excellent. There are three possible paths to registered nursing, a bachelor’s degree, an associate degree, and a diploma.
There is also the CNA RN online program which is often thought as a simple transition, but it is very important to know everything from the needed requirements and some additional courses and clinical exposures needed to be an RN. There are some basic nursing procedures and clinical duties being performed such as vital signs taking, assisting patients with daily activities and living and minor procedures with some supervision.
Another transition opportunity is pursuing LPN to RN programs. This for all LPN’s who has established a good foundation both on knowledge and actual nursing experience and may want to pursue the next big step towards becoming a Registered nurse. RN certification is important for one to receive promotions and go beyond and further their career path financially.
For more information on LPN jobs I encourage you to check out job opportunities online because thousands of LPN job openings will result from the need to replace experienced nurses who leave their jobs as the median age of the registered nurse population is said to be continuously rising.
