Home Forums Mighty LPNs/LVNs Is there a future for LPNs? Reply To: Is there a future for LPNs?


I have been an LPN for over a decade and the majority of my career has been in LTC either skilled nursing or management in assisted living/memory care. I feel there will always be a place for LPNs but in limited area, for someone like me that has many years to go in the profession, I want to be able to do a variety of things in healthcare but it seems that opportunities are only open if you have an RN and now even more so if you have a BSN. I feel the constant chance in the requirements and expectation of nurses is pushing people to obtain more education. I am now married, a mother of 3 boys and in school fulltime for my ADN, it is not easy but it is required if I want the door of opportunity to open a little wider.
