I've been a member of this site for quite some time and honestly, what I've been reading lately bothers me.
Why is it that when I open up the LPN/LVN tab to read the posts it never fails that I come across at least one new one on the following topic, everyday. The subject I am referring to is "is it worth it to become an LPN/LVN". I don't see this being asked of RNs.
I log onto this site to read about nurses and things they come across on the job or questions related to patient care. Why do we see so much of the other topic? LPNs have been in existence for decades and I doubt, although some may totally disagree with me, that they are going anywhere anytime soon.
Hopefully, we can get back on track and discuss real nursing topics instead of reading whether it's "worth it" to be an LPN/LVN.
