I have been an LVN in Texas for 3 years & most of my jobs have been PRN. I feel like I have to pull teeth to try to find a full time job! I tried LTC & when I did I worked part time or PRN, it was horrible & I will never go back. I worked in corrections & my boss was horrible I worked PRN but full time hours (see how that works). I've been doing PDN on & off for 3 years. It can be soo fickle. I'm also PRN with 2 companies.
I was doing really well with one particular company, working with 2 clients. But I got a phone call from the company, the foster mother did not want me to go back to the home/the child. She felt my nursing skills were "up to par". I had only been there twice & my orientation was for 2 hours. The kid is 2 years old, a drowning victim, is semi conscious, has a jtube, & requires a LOT of sx'ing. He can desat A LOT. I don't know what the foster mother was expecting but I did everything for that baby. So now I'm out of hours until they can fit me in with different cases. I hope I can find a full time job somewhere!
