Is it legal ….. question about nursing position from cna to lpn?

My friend has been working with a nursing home for 5 yrs as a CNA. she now completed her lpn and recive her lpn license. BUt her workplace refuse to employ her in a lpn position and has her still working as a CNA for a month now. She has applied for other places for lpn position but no call yet.

  1. Yes it’s legal, they are under no obligation to put her in an LPN position, not unless they paid for her schooling and she signed a contract to work for them exclusively for a specified length AS an LPN once she received her LPN license.
    Otherwise, she should keep looking for an available LPN position and keep working as a CNA to make her living while looking around.
