Job Hunting Tips for LPNs in the New Year

Job Hunting Tips for LPNs in the New Year

You’ve worked hard to become a highly qualified LPN, and now you’re ready to get out there and shine! Although many facilities in your area may be advertising for help, not every LPN job is the same. Many are good, but why settle for good when you can work somewhere great?

When looking for that perfect LPN job this year, remember that you have choices. According to a BLS report, LPN jobs are expected to grow by 16 percent till 2024. Keep the following qualities in mind as you begin your search. (Hint: Danbury checks them all!)

Community

A fun and positive workplace is the difference between waking up with a smile on your face or pulling the covers over your face in dread. Danbury is happy to be one of the places that makes LPNs smile. Tammy Garwood, an LPN who works at Broadview Heights Danbury, puts it this way:

“You don't even feel like you're working all the time because the atmosphere is like a family environment. I’ve worked in a nursing home situation before, and it’s so much more enjoyable to be in a place that’s not institutionalized. You actually feel like you’re in apartments and fancy hallways. It feels more like home. They really want their staff to see that they do care and that everyone is included.”

Danbury nurtures this family atmosphere among residents and staff by encouraging teamwork, providing a variety of fun activities, and expressing appreciation for one another. From the smiles and conversations with residents in the hallways, to the bright and cheerful decor, to coworkers and department heads who truly value staying on the same compassionate page, LPNs are sure to enjoy their day while feeling appreciated for their hard work.
