Kaye/Bassman Managing Partner Rae Ellen Douglas Featured in Monster, These Qualities Will Help RNs and LPNs Get Hired

The nursing job market is growing at a healthy clip, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS reports employment of licensed practical nurses (LPNs) is projected to grow 25% from 2012 to 2022, while registered nurses (RNs) are expected to see a 19% hike in that span.
Rae Ellen Douglas, a nursing recruiter and managing partner with Kaye/Bassman International in Texas, says opportunities for LPNs have changed over the past decade. Most openings can now be found at long-term care facilities and home health environments, while the demand for RNs at hospitals stays strong. “Many hospitals don’t have LPNs anymore,” she says. “With the advancement of medicine and hospitals, more hospitals desire to have RNs. There are fewer LPN degrees being offered. Fewer are being certified.”
