I'm a LPN student at the Educational Technology College of PR. A week ago my professor give a external assignment, wish is to interviewing 3 LPN from hospital, home-care and a clinic. I spent the last 4 days trying to interviewing LPNs from the hospital but I have NO success in it, some of my co-students have failed too. I don't know why but, they are way to busy or I wasn't allowed to conduct an interview at the location. I know that here in Puerto Rico there's no limit patient-nurse ratio they some time have 30 patient for "1" nurse "yea, just 1 nurse", but NOT ALLOWED to do an interview at the location that sound weird.
That's why I need your help. If any LPN want to help me PLEASE answer the question below. I will be in your debt. Many thanks in advance.
