The CT League for Nursing fielded a survey of 2010 nursing school graduates for the SustiNet Health Care Workforce Task Force; the CT Health Policy Project analyzed the data. The survey found that virtually all the graduates plan to stay in CT, and most intend to work full time. Two out of three are graduating with debt, most totaling between $10,000 and $30,000. Most expect to work in a hospital, but a large number of LPN graduates are seeking positions in nursing homes. Factors affecting their decision include distance, location, work environment, and finances, in that order.
