Job Outlook

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of LPNs is expected to grow by 22% between 2010 and 2020. This growth is much faster than average and is in response to the long-term care needs of an increasing elderly population, and the general increase in need for healthcare services. Older persons have an increased incidence of injury and illness, which will increase the overall demand for healthcare services. Experts expect job growth to occur for Practical Nurses that service the geriatric population like nursing care facilities, community care facilities and home healthcare services. Nevertheless, hospitals will continue to demand the services of LPNs and will remain one of the largest employers of these workers.

The best job opportunities for LPNs will occur in nursing care facilities and home healthcare services. Becoming a Practical Nurse (LPN) is also the closest step in becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) or other esteemed positions in the medical field.
