Hi! I am a new LPN, fresh out of school, and I just landed myself a full-time 7-3 job in an Alzheimer's unit in a LTC. I know it is going to be hard, I worked in an Alzheimer's unit as a CNA during school, but I am still nervous. I was very intent on getting a job, and I just got one today, but now I am thinking..."I am going to be an official nurse now!" It makes me very nervous that I am going to be out really doing what I went to school to do. I start on the 9th of November. My husband is very excited. He is going to stay home with the kids more while I work. My youngest is 3 1/2 months old, so I am nervous about leaving him too! I havent worked full-time since my 5 year old was a baby. Any advice for the newbie nurse...about preparing for the job and maybe for the job/homelife balance?
