Hi Lana,,,,,,Good Luck on your first day,,,hope you post soon so I can see how it went. I graduated as an LPN March 06. Immediately after graduation,,I went to the UK for a month then retyurened home to handle my Dad's affairs(he died the first week of nursing school
). I had the financial luxery of not having to work for while, so I did lots of tehings I had never been able to do in my 25 year working carrer. In the Fall of 06 I took a job at a LTC facility,,went thru orientation and lasted one night on the floor. I dont know if it was just my insecurities and being overwhelmed and afraid, but I have not looked for another job since. Ohyeah,,I was morbidly obese and had a lap-band procedure in Jan 07 and am finally feeling fit enough to start looking for work. I now I'll run into problems,,emplyers wanting to know why I've not worked since graudation(I'm NOT going to tell them about teh one day LTC facility thing). SO,,,my advice is to stick with it,,,give it a chance. Again,,good luck!
