Who do we have here? I am a fairly new LPN, graduated December 06, passed boards February 07, hence my screen name
I work at Marengo Memorial Hospital.
How long have you worked in said position? I have only been there for a few months, previously I worked for Highland Ridge Care Center in Williamsburg.
What is your specialty? What are some things you love about your job? We see it all, we are a one floor hospital with 25 beds. I love the variety of my job, and learning all sorts of things everyday. LTC was nice, but I just didn't have much opportunity to practice nursing, LTC was getting boring. The floor nurses are awesome, very good group of people to work with.
What do you hate about it or would change about it? Would of course love to get paid more, I am thinking about taking weekend package in order to boost my pay.
Any words of wisdom? Just get in there and do it! I know you will be scared, but you gotta get over it at some point. Make the most of all your learning opportunities. Just cause your new to a job, or nursing, don't let people walk all over you, especially scheduling. It's ok to say NO!
