I am a new LPN grad from Ontario Canada that recently moved to Edmonton Alberta due to my husband being in the military. I have applied to tons of jobs in the hospitals here which is where I really want to work, but have had no luck yet. Maybe once I get my license I'll have better luck, as I just wrote my exam a couple weeks ago.
Anyways, I ended up getting a job in homecare that is didn't like at all. But I got lucky and recently got a job with a specialty pharmacy as a nurse. I've been training there for 1 week and I actually really enjoy it. It's Monday-Friday 9-5 kind of job, going to assisted living facilities / retirement homes for a couple hours do to a blood pressure clinic, deliver medications, answer client questions, advocate for clients.
My issue with this job is that I am not using any nursing skills and I am afraid I will lose them. I want to stay with this job as long as I can though.
