Being a LVN from Texas I have always been able to take verbal or written orders from a PA so I don't really understand why the other states did not have this.
I'd also like to see where he got his information......bet I could last longer just being a LVN instead of an AS or BSN.. ever worked in correctional care...now that's a whole different story!!
In pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a brand name and a generic name. For example, the brand name of Tylenol has a generic name of acetaminophen. Aleve is also called naproxen.
Amoxil is also called amoxicillin and Advil is also called ibuprofen.
The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra.
After careful consideration by a team of government experts,
it recently announced that it has settled on the following generic name---you ready--here it comes---mycoxafloppin.
Also considered were:
and of course----ibepokin......:imbar
SORRY IF THIS OFFENDED ANYONE
thanks all of you for your responses to my question....i knew that i was gonna step on some toes with this but i know i can handle them. it doesn't hurt to ask right??? isn't what this forum is all about??? we move so much with my husband's job i think my best bet is to try excelsior college but i've heard sooooooo much about the final that i'm afraid that i will forget and use some of my so-called shortcuts (we all have them) and forget to go by the book like i will have to and i hear it's a few thousand a pop to do this clinical at the end...boy i better start saving my dollars :chuckle i really am a caring and excellent nurse and my patients come first. but now that i'm older i get tired of hearing things like you"re just an lvn so i guess no i know that i gotta do something about it. there are alot of good lvn's out there that can teach you alot but i have also known alot of good ole rn's from the old schools who have taught me alot. nursing has changed so much through the years that i have worked in the medical field that it's scarey and i guess this has been one of the main reasons that i have not finished my rn degree--yes i have started several times and have gotten all the garbage such as history, english, etc out of my way so again i thank you and have a happy holiday.
i fixed your vb code hope it's ok
Is it possible for a 16 year veteren LVN to challenge the RN boards?? And if so how would I go about it??
Sorry about that Dannamegg
Forgot to add that one OOPS!!!!:imbar :imbar
Sick of reading all of those helpful hints? Here's some you can really use---
1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto! The blockage will be almost instantly removed.
2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.
3. Avoid arguments with missus about lifting the toilet seat by simply peeing in the sink. (Yuk)
4. High blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for awhile, thus reducing the pressure in your veins.
5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep when you hit the snooze button. (Now how many of us hit that button )
6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough. (Or afraid to let that little squeaker go :imbar )
7. Have a bad toothache? Hit your thumb with a hammer, then you will forget about that toothache.
Sometimes we Just Need to Remember What The Rules of Life Really Are: you need only 2 tools--WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, then use the duct tape. (or better yet all that hospital tape you have stored up at home that you have emptied out of your pockets)
The 5 most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship are "I apologize" and "You are right." (preferably spoken by your other half)
Everyone seems normal until you get to know them. (NEVER a truer statement has ever been written)
Never pass up an opportunity to go potty. (especially if you're a nurse)
If you woke up breathing, CONGRATULATIONS! You've been given another chance. (I can't figure out if this is good or not sometimes)
And finally....Be very very good to your family and friends. You never know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan!
These are good reminders if you've heard them already....
:imbar Betcha heard this one already but I had to write it so forgive me
All the organs of the body were having a meeting trying to decide who was the one in charge.
"I should be in charge," said the brain, "because I run all the body's systems so without me nothing would happen."
"I should be in charge," said the blood, "because I circulate oxygen all over so without me you all would just waste away."
"I should be in charge," said the stomach, " because I process food and give all of you energy."
" I should be in charge ,"said the legs, "because I carry the body wherever it needs to go."
"I should be in charge," said the eyes, "because I allow the body to see where it goes."
"I should be in charge," said the rectum, "because I'm responsible for the body's waste removal."
All the other body parts laughed at the rectum and insulted him, so in a huff, he shut down tight.
Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache, the stomach was bloated, the legs got wobbly, the eyes got watery, and the blood became toxic. They all decided that the rectum should be the boss.
THE MORAL OF THE THE STORY????
The as***le is usually in charge.
HeeHeeHeeHeeHawHawHawHawHooHooHooHoo :roll :roll :roll Good one!!!
Thanks for the good news on Tina. I wish her and her family all the best. My prayers continue to be with her as always.
I'm back from vacation and very glad to know that Tina is doing better. I kept check on a friend's putor in between fishing. I pray she gets to go home soon.
D**N I really hate hearing that about Tina. I know that her husband is keeping vigile in the waiting room though huh? I don't even know her but I feel for her...It's hard when a nurse gets sick cause you know toooo much I guess. Sometimes I think it's easier on the ones who don't know what is going on. I'll be going home for a week on vacation but I'll find a putor somewhere to log on to keep a check and continue to pray for her. Gotta go see what my latest grandbaby is gonna be....my baby is going to have a baby and she goes for her ultrasound tomorrow. I'll be able to pop the film into the VCR and see for myself what MeeMaw can spoil come October.
Just got this from a friend of mine
Life with Men is like a deck of cards
You need a Heart to love them;
a Diamond to marry them;
a Club to beat them;
and a Spade to bury them.:kiss :kiss
I'm glad to hear Tina is doing so well....Did she show you where to stick her yet? Or ask do you want me to do that? Her hubby sounds like an angel --- Not many of those out there--more Good Luck to her and her family. My prayers are still with her.
