New York state hospital nursing vacancies are brimming and are constantly on the rise. According to a state workforce survey, many of these hospitals have reduced staff or have resorted to freezing their hiring process due to the 2009-2010 economic crisis. Yet the economy is faring well these past years and about 80% of hospitals in this state are now anticipating hiring more nurses, with Long Island at the very top of that list.

New York ranks third in the entire country when it comes to registered nurse employment with 282,108 licensed RNs. Earning as much as $77,316; registered nurses in this state have a lot to look forward to in terms of lucrative living and even career advancement.

Leading Colleges That Offer LPN to RN Programs

NY has a lot of colleges that offer LPN to RN program throughout the state. Finger Lakes Health College of Nursing is one of these schools. It is a rural hospital-affiliated learning institution which trains licensed practical nurses in their choice to continue their education and become RNs.

The LPN program which lasts for a year is composed of 20 college credits which costs less than $10,000 USD. The college has produced more than 1,600 nursing graduates since 1956.

An LPN student receives 600 clinical hours in this college. Graduates can have immediate placement when they want to continue their education which leads to the Associate in Applied Science degree (Major in Nursing).

Monroe College right smack at the Bronx District in New York City has an Associate Degree program. Their 1+1 program allows students to complete the Practical Nursing program during the first year and the RN program during the second year. A licensed practical nurse can directly enroll to the RN program that focuses on healthcare delivery. Modern facilities await the right candidates which include pharmacy and science labs as well as the HumanPatientSimulationCenter (a unique feature that sets them apart from many other nursing schools).

The Crouse Hospital College of Nursing is located in Central New York. This school offers a two-year associate degree nursing program that incorporates both clinical and classroom components. One of the program options is the LPN to RN track. Almost a hundred percent of graduates from this nursing school pass the Registered Nurse licensure examination. These same graduates easily find a job within just half a year. About 87 LPN students receive the Associate Degree each year.
