I've been subscribed to this site for some time now and gravitate to the LPN/LVN since that is my position. I've been noticing that for quite sometime now most of the postings are related to people lamenting becoming an LPN/LVN.... Read More

    wow you guys must be from above the mason dixon line, have to be, one issue with the younger nurses is that like myself in the state of Georgia, high schools are focused more on mathematics and sciences, as the curriculum turns to begin preparing students for the "technology age" when i was in school coming up we spent way more time on software and how to research using the then fairly new worldwide web, and solving mathematic equations than we ever did learing where to put a semicolon and lets face it were nurses have you ever seen perfect diction, grammar, or spelling on a nurses note... + in Ga with a very heavy southern accent get things done, no one accept people who aren't from here ay anything about so as long a i dont leave ga for Michigan, or new york i'll be fine often it's more admirable to be true of one's self than to speak with perfect grammar and diction at atleast here the brogue's, seem to be alittle mor approachable... and regard the LPN v.s RN i see both sides it's very difficult to get away from it when it's what is reflected every day of your working life, it wa so funny the first day of my new job some years ago i had to tell the administration what they could use me for because the weren't sure what to do with this LPN, but they liked me, they kept referring to their little reg book guess what in Ga LPN=SN, regs are written in hospice for SN, only RN are CM n GA by law I can do what an RN does as long as i have superior to answer to, except hang blood and pronounce death... so no it doesnt matter but even now i get well i need to speak to the RN, and the RN politely tells them every time well he knows more about you than i do we'll let him handle it just funny you make your own reputation and outcomes, embrace it and you'll win , depose and you need to find something else thats my rant on the word nazi and explaination to why it is a forefront in conversation
    I haven't noticed any differences in written expression between nurses from southern states or any other region. The truth is people form impressions based on your command of the language. Each person can then decide for themselves how they wish to implement that knowledge in their daily lives.

    I read his other posts. He doesn't believe in periods.

    This is a perfect example. From MaleNurseGA's post, he strikes me as the coworker you do not want to get stuck with if you want to get any work done! I imagine that 1) no one can ever get a word in edgewise since there's no break in the flow of words, and 2) he never stops, just rambles on and on. If I am wrong, then perhaps there's something we've all learned about the importance of expressing yourself properly.

    I don't like run on sentences AND grammar and punctuation errors either. I must say, it bothers me. Lets not make people feel like we received our nursing education out of a cookie jar. PLEASE. I was an LPN before I became an RN and I believe the RNs made us feel "Low" for "Low Paid Nurse." If it wasn't for that, I would have been fine. But now we have the ADN vs BSN. It seems like it will NEVER end! So now I've come to realize that once I'm satisfied with who I AM, nothing else matters!
