Licensed Practical Nurse with patientThe job market for Licensed Practical Nurses is strong and offers opportunities nationwide, which makes LPN training programs an attractive option for residents of the Gulf Coast region. However, before deciding to pursue certification as a Licensed Practical Nurse, you may want to know what kind of career path might be available to you. How realistic would it be to relocate if you’re ready for a change of scenery, or to stay in the Northshore or Greater New Orleans area if this is where you feel at home? Wherever you go, would you have the chance to maximize your career potential?

The good news is that demand for LPN jobs is high all over the country due to the number of facilities in which LPNs are qualified to work, and just about every location offers the potential for advancement. You just have to be aware of the options that are available to you, and have a plan to make them a reality.

The petrochemical industry is a mainstay of the economy of the Gulf Coast region, and serves as one of the primary employers in the state of Louisiana. While the industry has been in something of a slump in recent years, there are signs that oil and gas prices are starting to rebound. If that upward trend in prices continues, skilled workers such as welders could see new employment opportunities materialize as the industry begins to enter an expansion phase. This potential growth, along with the projected workforce shortage caused by the impending retirement of a large percentage of the nation’s skilled workers, indicates that this might be an advantageous time to consider training for a profession such as welding.

Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University first addressed this issue in the early 1980s with his theory of Multiple Intelligences. He believed that standard tests of intelligence didn’t tell the whole story of a person’s strengths, talents, and learning style.
