I have been reading the discussion under LVN/LPN are we regarded as proffesionals...(paraphrased). I have also been to the NFLPN site and was suprpised by the lack of traffic on the message board (especially since this one is so busy!) I am refreshing after 9 years out and I am wondering nothing has changed much since I practiced last.
I am curious about some things...
Who are you...
Where are you...
Do you have a nurse practice act in your state?
Are you familliar with it?
Do you belong to the NFLPN?
Are you concerned with the regulation of LPN Practices?
What about a national level system...One where we get graded pay based on additional certifications, training, years of service etc....
I guess what I am trying to find out is do we, as a group of individuals in a high stress - high responsibility career - care about the treatment we receive as a professional body?
I realize that many of us have kids, school and other commitments that demand our energy on a daily basis and delving into the politics of nursing is a large task. At the same time I am concerned about the lack of organized support the LPN/LVN has available.
So here's me.
Kate - Mama to 3 under 6
LPN seeking licensure through endorsement in TX
We have no LVN practice act
I haven't joined yet...seeing if I can stir some interest though
I think it's obvious that I am concerned with LVN/LPN as a whole.
Thanks for reading this lengthy post. I look forward to hearing who's out there
