I want to first thank anyone who is taking the time to read my post.
Here is my story.....
I recently got licensed in October.After two months I have finally gained employment at a pediatric private duty nursing home health company.I have not chosen a specialty yet, but pediatrics is where it all started for me.I volunteered at a childrens hospital in highschool.
I mainly took this job because I love children and this job also seems that it will provide a great amount of flexibility as far as scheduling.I am also planning to go back to RN school after I get at least a year of experience working as an LVN.This company also seems to offer great training opportunities such as trache and vent training,Iv cert and things like that.They also start off with low level patients and then slowly allow you to work your way up to patients that need more critical care.My main goal is to get as much experience and knowledge as I can.
Is this a good starting point?
What is the best way to start out as a new grad in order to gain good experience and to be a marketable employee moving forward?
Are there any other suggestions or tips to help me increase my knowledge and skills base?
What areas in nursing provide the best learning experiences?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks in advance
