I'm a newly-minted LPN with zero nursing experience besides my school clinicals. I have an interview with a peds HH agency on Monday that has hired a lot of new grad LPNs from my school. I'm a little familiar with them because we did peds clinical at their medical daycare and at some of their group homes. I will be doing shifts at individual patients' homes to start. I told the HR lady that I had no experience and she said "we'll work on that." Needless to say I'm still nervous! Especially knowing I'll be on my own. I was thoroughly honest with the lady - I am a bit familiar with administering meds and feedings through g-tubes as we did quite a bit of that during our peds clinicals, but I've never really had any experience working with trachs or vents, unfortunately.
I'm really happy I have an interview and potentially a job lined up, I like working with children (although I don't think peds will end up being my specialty), I think it'd be less stressful and more flexible than working in a nursing home (basically my only other job prospect as an LPN in my area) which will be especially important when I go back to school to get my RN.
Anyone have any advice for a nervous new nurse with no experience starting out in HH care? Pearls of wisdom? Thanks in advance.
