Hey all LVN's and LPN's.
I do and I don't love being an LVN. At the beginning when I first started, I loved it.:heartbeat
Now that I have 6 years of experience, I'm started to hate it at times!
Well, dam...........we do practically the same things RN do. On somethings. We can assess and pass meds.
The only thing that holds me up when taking care of my pt's is when my pt needs IV pain med or IVPB. And I have to wait for that. If I were an RN (which pretty soon I'll be!!) I would give it on demand!
The one thing I love is, depending what floor I'm floated to, I don't have to admit patients!
HA-HA! I can have a 5 pt load on Med/Surg post op and have a fantastic day. My patients are well, and pain free. There happy, I'm happy. So nothing to do and I sit nearby reading my Nursing book.
While the RN is running up and down admitting.!!!
AHhhh, so nice to be an LVN for now!!!! Pretty soon, I'll be in that position!
But it's ok for now!!
I will enjoy it as much as I can!
