1) I will graduate ADN in 14 days woohoo. Have been an LPN since 1992
2)unable to answer
3)if RN duties are handed over to LPN's, it's because the duties have been properly delegated, the facility has respect for what the LPNs are able to do, or the RNs are so overworked & their facility is granting their requests for help
4)I would think delegation of SOME duties would allow Rn more time for assessments, etc
5)Hopefully for the better
6) Management & assessments
7)depends where they are working, if meds(no IV), treatments, Foleys, etc, then I don't think it's a problem. I got ALOT more techinical skill experience in LPN school. In the 3 semesters of RN program, only 1 IM, 1 Foley, a few dressing changes. In LPN school, I did so much more, ng insertions, tons of Foleys, lot more intense dressing changes, tons of IM & subq's. I think techincally, LPNs have it, management the RNs have it.
