Hi, I've been an LPN since '08, but haven't worked much to be a stay at home mom. I've worked here & there in clinic settings, but am currently not working again to be home with my kids. My husband and I don't really have much childcare help, so it's just me to watch our children. However, I do keep my LPN license & CPR card active & am able to work.
Anyway, I've been considering taking a class to be a wellness screener. It's just a one day siminar to teach nurses, phlebotomists, & medical assistants how to use a cholesterol check machine, finger sticks, and how to teach people to be aware of high BP, high cholesterol etc. After the class is over, you get a wellness screener certification. Even though I'm already an LPN & can do all of this, I thought getting the certification might help me land a job, as I haven't worked much. As a wellness screener I could then do wellness screenings for companies for their employees. I thought the hours would be good for me as a stay at home mom.
I was just wondering if there are any other LPN's who have worked in this line of work? If so what was it like? Did you get many hours? Thanks!
