If you stay an LVN for any amount of time, you will learn, there are RN's that will give you the respect you deserve, and there are some that won't. You can be super LVN, and that one RN will talk smack about you no matter what, you can help that person, start their IV's for them, help put in their foleys and they'll still talk smack.
Personally, it doesn't matter to me what licensing you hold, if your a lazy LVN, your still a lazy nurse, if your a lazy RN, your a lazy nurse that's taken more schooling than me, but your still lazy. I give the respect I get, and I give alot of respect for someone that is an RN, I've seen them run themselves crazy trying to cover PB's for me, and I in turn offer to help them out with something that's in my scope, it's a give/get industry, you'll make more friends offering to help someone else out by taking some of their stress off, and learn alot more from the ones that like you, than being lazy and expecting someone to owe you.
It still doesn't matter whether your an RN or an LVN, you still care for patients, it's to the degree that you care for them that counts. Every patient on the floor you work is one of your patients, you may not have direct responsibility for another RN's patients, but are you seriously going to go hunt down an RN or CNA to get a patient a cup of water when your right there and capable? Will you bail at the first sight of a code brown when a CNA's asking you to hold a patient for them or help bed bath them and you have a couple of minutes to help out? Will you keep all your IV fluids full and ready to go for the next shift by shift change, and make sure all your PB's are ready to grab and hang, or will you make the RN deal with your patients IV's all night long when they have patients of their own to take care of? It's the little things that earn an LVN respect in CNA's and RN's eyes.
In my opinion, most RN's that started out LVN's, like LVN's alot better and associate/relate with them better. It's the ones that usually go RN full through (and i'm not saying all of them do but some of them) that think just because they hold a licensing higher than ours, that we're not capable of and don't deserve the respect they do.
