    Way to be proactive that is awesome! I hope you get it! Brush up on cardiac meds, BP meds, thinners, IV calculations. Since you are an EKG tech you have a leg up and I am sure that is why they are really interested in you!

    I work NOC shift and it took awhile to get used to it, but the biggest thing was to stay busy it helps during those first few months of 4am "I just want my bed" feelings.

    As for home, dark shade, zero phone, eye mask, noise cancelling headphones or earplugs.

    Hello and happy New Year to y'all: I have a questions : a friend of mine has a Bachelor in Business, if she become an LVN, does her bachelor degree count in for something? Thanks.
    In my LPN program we did not have any general education requirements as it was a certificate program... so it all depends on the LPN program's syllabus. Now if she wants those general education classes she took for her BS to count towards the RN or even an Accelerated BSN, generally if they are not too old they apply towards that degree.
