I'm trying to get an LPN job in Florida.?
Ok so I just graduated from an LPN program and will be studying RN soon. HOwever, I have 10 years of MA experience within a specialty that I'm applying for. I have submitted my resume all over Florida. What does it take to recieve one phone call or email form employers? I have an excellent work history, plenty of references, and very qualified. Why haven't I recieved any calls? I've even stated that I'm open to continue working as a Medical Assistant to see if that helps, and nothing. Can anyone suggest a better site or source for job hunting, specifically near the Orlando area? Will be very much appreciated. Thank you, in advance. Ok, I've obviously missed some very important points. Let me just say that first, I appreciate the time anyone has taken to post a suggestion. I don't get offended easily. I appreciate that people are honest and quite blunt actually. However, I have actually showed up in business attire to a few facilities but take in mind, I'm in another state and I don't have the money to travel as much as I'd like. Furthermore, I have contacted the jobs that I've applied for and have sent follow up letters as well. However, most jobs do not post a phone number. Some only post fax numbers which I trace to the business and call them so yes, I do pester. There is only so much I can do. Here in my state, I never ever had a problem getting a job. In fact, I would get hired and recieve phone calls from every employer I interview with. I think it is more difficult to get a job in Florida, especially at entry level in a career. I'm a go getter type of person and I do I think it is more difficult to get a job in Florida, especially at entry level in a career. I'm a go getter type of person and I do 37 seconds ago

There are a lot of nursing homes needing LPNs in the small cities surrounding Orlando. Don't focus on the big cities alone, a lot of smaller Central Florida communities have more retirement/assisted-living centers needing LPN staff. Try Ridgecrest Nursing and Rehabilitation in Deland, Florida managed by Greystone... More

When job hunting, one should never sit around waiting to get calls after submitting your application/resume. Call them within a couple of days of applying for the position. Ask HR when they expect to be scheduling interviews and you were hoping to speak to a manager who might answer some of your questions in advance... More

Thanks for clarifying with some additional details. If you could mention the speciality that you have the MA experience in, it is possible that some websites could be found particular to LPN or MA jobs within that specialty in Florida. Best wishes on finding the right job for you!

Florida was one of the first states to start eliminating LPNs from many health care settings. Unfortunately the schools continued to churn out way more LPNs than the market needs. Move on to RN and hopefully that is a BSN degree you are seeking since Florida's employers also prefer it.
