    I think thats a question only you have the answer for. I choose LPN route because I needed to see results sooner. I plan on graduate september 12 and starting at the local cc september 18 for the bridge. Good luck either way!

    You could also go back and check the documentation for when the IV was inserted.

    As long as her current certificate is up to date she shouldn't have a problem. I transfered mine to Oregon before and they were faster then a few other states. The OSBN website has an endorsement packet with all the info she needs to transfer her certificate.

    Well, as an LPN here in Columbus OH, we can't even WORK in the hospitals, let alone L&D!
    Nursechick07 you asked and I know thats not true. One of the grads from the lpn program I am in now is working at childrens in the NICU. I know of another lpn working at childrens also. I know of another lpn working in the nursery but not with the mom's at the hospital where we do our clinicals. I do agree that Lpns don't work in L&D.

    "They" say you try about 7x's before your able to quit. I have not smoked for about a week this time. Seems kind of stupid too smoke when it gives you headaches and gag when you inhale. Don't know why that started but it sure gave me an extra reason to quit. I have quit for 6mths before and it was easy to do when I was sick. I had bronchitis something awful, and I was still trying to puff away. Try to stay away from other smokers if you can. Get rid of your ashtrays and lighters. When the thought of smoking comes into your mind replace it with something else. Good luck!

    I recently was able to do a straight cath for the first time. The advice posted is wonderful. We were taught after cleansing down the middle don't take your eyes off the meatus! It doesn't hurt to breath either! The hardest part for me was standing there holding the labia apart while 955cc of urine slowly (it seemed slow anyway) drained from the tube.

    We just finished the first half. started off with 50, 46 current. Get our caps on Thursday. Most of us are happy we only have to wear them at clinicals. Just because its one more thing to remember. Keep up the good work!

    We go over it but its not stressed because it is out of our scope. My point was people shouldn't view LPN as an easy route out. A comment was made about its better than nothing. Becoming a nurse takes hard work and determination, RN or LPN.

    It is always better to finish an RN program, but if LPN is all you can get, then that is better than nothing.



    I choose to go the LPN route because its less than a year. I needed to see results from my efforts before 2 years. I can also work and then go back to school for LPN to RN bridge. The school I attended is known for being strict, and having students who become very capable LPN's. Please don't have the idea because its not an ADN program that it is gonna be smooth sailing. We have one former ADN student and she's not top of the class in the LPN program. It has alot to do with the student and not just the program. Our books are even RN books. Do you think it makes a huge difference if we don't cover nursing diagnosis and deep palpation???

    This was one nurse and her bad attitude.


    I agree with that. One clinical I had a nurse who made me feel like I was just in the way. And it was obvious she didn't care to involve a student. I was very taken aback by her attitude. Next clinical, same site, I had a wonderful nurse who offered me every oppurtunity available. They had both graduated from the program I am in now. You just have to remember people are people nurses or not. Your gonna come across attitude no matter what field you are in.
