    Yeah...I guess it is a little soon for me to be worried about no job offers, but I am ready to get out of the DC/MD/VA area...I don't mind working for LTC, and I've already started looking for jobs in Florida, and I'm going to make a list of every facility that I think I can work for and take it from there...and Yes I'm gonna have some interviews lined up before I actually move....THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!!!!!!!!!

    And about that "REAL NURSE" comment...that's hilarious, because I guess me being a "FAKE NURSE" I shouldn't have to tell one of the "REAL NURSES" at my job that a patient should use their cane on the AFFECTED SIDE, because I'm not a "REAL NURSE".....I swear I'm so tired of the unnecessary egos...it's just like the PA vs. MD mess....get over yourself

    Quote from BuffMurse
    go back to school and become a real RN

    So...when I go to read your profile, it says that you're still a "student." Not making any personal observations here, but ummmmm finish school and join the real world. Work for a year or ten, and then make your comments. I will say this much...if your entire outlook in nursing is geared towards the way your comment read, then please do us allll a favor and go work in the factories, dude. We don't need any more BuffMurses around.

    to the OP-Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

    Hi Jayson S I know I am a bit late with my post. I love Florida but cannot find any work as a new LPN. Can you tell me what hospitals I can look into up there in Tx. I may have to look at relocation. I would love to be have gone back to school for RN before resorting to this. But for now, I should at least research this. I would love to work in a hospital and it is great if they are hiring LPNs (LVNs) in your area. Thanks for sharing!
