This is my third week on my first job as an LPN. I am working for a privately owned LTC and I actually love the work. My very first day was 'brightened' by DHEC. After three days of survey, I was put on the med cart and have been working alone with as many as 44 residents at times. Here's the problem... That first week was pay week. Several tried to cash their checks on payday and were told they were no good. Today is yet again payday. I made two trips, as instructed, to pick up my check and finally was told they will not be ready until tomorrow morning. I really don't know what I need to do at this point. Instability is obvious to me and my job search has been on-going. I do not want to do anything that will jeopardize my license, but do not feel that after two years of school I can work for free! Any suggestions???
