New York school of practical nursing graduates face competition ever since the number of hospital jobs for LPN?s (licensed practical nurses) declines. Yet, jobs may still be available for LPN?s as rapid employment growth is projected in other health care industries, with the best job opportunities in nursing care facilities and in home health care services.
There are a lot of LPN?s in the US since training in a New York school of practical nursing only lasts about 1-year and the state-approved programs in New York school of practical nursing institutions (mostly in vocational or technical schools) reach to over 1-thousand. It is therefore a good thing that replacement needs will be a major source of job openings as many workers leave the practical nursing occupation permanently. Only about 27 of New York school of practical nursing LPN?s work in hospitals, while 25 in nursing care facilities, 12 in offices of physicians, as the other 36 work for home health care services, employment services, elderly community care facilities, public/private educational services, outpatient care centers, and Federal, State, and local government agencies, with about 1 in 5 LPN?s working part-time.
Although employment of LPNs in the traditional hospital setting is expected to continue to decline, conversely, employment of New York LPNs in home health care facilities is expected to grow at least averagely because of the growing number of aged and disabled persons in need of long-term care, also because of consumer preference for care in the home, and technological advances that make it possible to bring increasingly complex treatments into the home. In addition, New York LPNs in nursing care facilities will be needed to care for the increasing number of patients who have been discharged from the hospital but who have not recovered enough. LPN?s are heavily needed for their workloads at 40-hours/week, round-the-clock care on week nights, weekends, and holidays for the patients? needs.
