    That excludes me!

    I've worked at two different fast food places many moons ago, but was crappy, disorganized, forgetful, and sometimes had a bad attitude.

    Just an update. Since graduation from lpn school, I have a night shift job on a busy med-surg floor. After six months on this job I will be eligible for a job in my hospital's emergency department. I am very excited for this opportunity. Thanks for all the feedback I recieved. I will be taking ACLS next month. I am also going to be taking my emt-b classes in the near future. Thanks!

    Congrats!! In my area of MS. large hospitals still hire LPNs in Med-Surg. and smaller hospitals hire them in EDs. One of the best nurses my mom had recently in an ER was a LPN who knew her stuff. I hope you have much success in your career
