    Hey, my name is Ramelle I'm 46 Iv'e been an LPN for 18 yrs. Most of my career has been LTC. The past 4 years in assisted living as a wellness nurse, healthcare coordinator and now as an ED. I love this area of care it's health care with twist of hopitality. it is challenging, yet very rewarding. I just starting working on pre-reqs and I'm looking forward to becoming an RN.
    as an LPN we all know we can do the job but not having that piece of paper is no respect from others and much less pay. My hat is off to all who have gone through and made it. My hat is off to those of us who are going throgh and to those considering the challenge go for it.:spin:

    Hello to all -- My name is Bethany and have been an LPN for 3yrs and have enrolled and begun my education through Excelsior College. I passed Micro this month with an A and am sooo... relieved to have all my prereqs out of the way!! I am starting NC6 and working backwards to NC3 because NC6 has a lot of Micro related info on it. Anyway I am working at an inpatient treatment facility for women who have Eating Disorders -primarily Anorexia and Bulemia. I live and work in AZ and love it much better that where I am from -near Rochester NY. Best Wishes to you all who are studying and working hard- IT WILL PAY OFF

    Hi! My name is Anna...mother of 13-going-on-30 year-old daughter, wife to hard-working husband, currently working in a trauma center in SoCal. Finished all pre-reqs this semester and decided to take a semester off after 6 years of non-stop school. Got accepted to bridge program at local community college. Love being an LVN but it's time to make more money. The daughter decided she wants to be a doctor...so much for early retirement! (We are very proud and will be very broke unless she gets some scholarships.)

    Hello all you bridgers or soon to be bridgers..............

    I am a 26 soon to be 27 year old LPN and have been since Feb/03. I am in my third semester of ADN program and will graduate in May of this year......WOOHOO I can't wait. I have worked in all kinds of areas: Surgical, Oncology, Dialysis, Interventional Radiology and, Orthopedics. I am hoping to get into an OR when I graduate. My husband and I are planning on moving and the hospital I am looking at has an internship program for any new RNs that don't have OR experience. Hope all of you do well in your studies. I have two Med/Surg critical care classes and one management class left.

    Hi, I'm Debbie and have been an LPN since Oct 06. I'm currently working in a small ER, I just started here 3 weeks ago. Prior, I worked on a med-surg floor at a very large trauma hospital where I was used as an aide and not a licensed nurse. The ER is a better fit, I'm used as a nurse and fully utilize my license here. I'm also going to the local college's one day a week program starting in Sept, so I'm busy. Given that I'm a single mom to two really funny kids, who are never boring and keep me on my toes because they are so smart, I don't get bored, just tired! Good luck to everyone.
