    I am sorry but here is a story. a nurse got written up in wa. another nurse gave a statement that i dont want to work on weekends anymore with t. when asked why said "im afraid that she will call the state on me" when asked why he believes that she might do something to him, he explained that in the past she has made calls to the state over things that he thought could have been handled by asking a few questions of the resident and employee. this statement went into the nurses file. but what he didnt say was at the time the dns said to this nurse you need to call the state. he report to her she did her job. it seems in his statement he left out alot. but he looked good. the nurse was never informed this statement was placed in her file and she was fired

    LPN'S HAVE BEEN AROUND & WILL REMAIN AROUND. THERE ARE RN'S WHO DONT LIKE LPN'S HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THEM. THEN THERE ARE THE RN'S WHO DO HAVE RESPECT FOR LPNS. THEY WORK IN HOSPITAL SETTING. THEY ARE DRAWING, BLOOD. STARTING IV'S , GIVING IV MED'S. THEY TAKE GREAT CARE OF THERE PTS.
    SO DONT SELL THE LPN'S SHORT. SOME GO BACK FOR THERE RN AND SOME DONT.
    THEN THERE IS THE HOSPITAL BUGET OR NURSING HOME BUGET. I KNOW LPN'S WHO MAKE $27.00 TO $30.00 A HOUR. WITH BENIFITS IN NURSING HOMES. SOME LPNS WHO NEVER LEAVE THE HOSPITAL SETTING GO UP IN SALARY TO. LPN'S HAVE ALOT OF ON HANDS TRAINING. YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE PEOPLE WHO THINK LPN'S ARE NOT NURSES. THAT LPNS ARE NOT ADEQUATELY PREPARED FOR NURSING.

    IT WILL BE THIS WAY UNTIL THE END OF TIME. BUT BE PROUD OF BEING A LPN. WHO WORKS JUST AS HARD, MAKES LESS MONEY. I WOULD RATHER HAVE A LPN TAKE CARE OF ME THEN A RN WHO GO'S TO COLLEGE FOR 2 YEARS & STARTS WORKING. THE RN MAY HAVE MORE BOOK TRAINING. BUT THE LPN HAS THE HANDS ON TRAINING ALONG WITH BOOK TRAINING.

    i have been a nurse for 36 years. Nurse's do get fired for no reason
    plus employers will stuff files with write-ups that state refused to
    sign. There was a nurse who worked in friday harbor
    she found a schedule on the floor in the door of a room where she was charting . Picked it up showed it to another nurse asked if they saw anyone and he said no. 3 days later that nurse was written up because by showing the schedule to another nurse the nurse she showed it to. He became very upeset because his time was cut and she new she would upset him. This was the write up then because she asked this nurse about it. He report her she got 3 days no pay & then fired. With a thank you of the fine service she gave icc.
    the nurse worked there for 4 years family memebers & other staff couldnt believe it. This happen dec. 1 2009.
