    Signs of boundaries crossed:

    You visit the patient on your break or day off
    You buy "gifts" for certain patients
    You decide no one can care for a patient as well as you
    The patient (or family member) has your personal contact (cell, email, home #)
    You are connected on social media
    You have photos on your device or tagged in social media linking you to the patient
    You feel as like you are related (The Gramdma I never knew

    Voluntary termination is when you are PRN and fail to work/ offer to work the minimum shifts needed For example if PRNs must submit 2 week day and 2weekend shifts availability after 2 or 3 months of not submitting availability you are voluntarily removed from the roster. You did not have to work the 4 shifts just be available for the 4 shifts.

    So yes if you did not offer availability because "you didn't want to work" them it's usually considered a voluntary termination (not involuntary because the employee made the decision to not work/offer availability and the employer can give the job to someone who WANTS to work)

    You do. They will find out especially if you apply for financial aid. There are databases that indicate where you have attended before. Failure to disclose will get you rejected for fraud.

    How much money do you make annually now? Perhaps you could get WIA funding
    WIA funding for LPN eligibility is reduce if she has an associates degree in another discipline. But it doesn't hurt to ask. Some states only do referrals for those on unemployment (quitting a job to go to school is often a disqualifier for unemployment)

    Did you ask your financial aid office about other grants, scholarships or a payment plan?

    Not a good idea and likely it's an intranet not Internet address that requires a security key installed on the device/computer to maintain data security of the EMR per HIPAA. While it may look like a web address it's likely not

    You should not be entering information when not at work on the clock. Period.

    I started working for a home health agency a month ago and just found out that they are withholding 12 hrs of overtime pay that I desperately needed on this wks check because my employer says they did not receive my nursing notes from a patient on Tues. I worked 5 days in a row and dropped off all of the notes in person. They told me that someone should have called to inform me of the missing doc but no one did before the deadline to enter time. I told them per Florida law, it is illegal to withhold pay for this reason. They said it was illegal for me to withhold a doc. I wasn't withholding a doc as I dropped it off and they admitted that they fired their billing person last week and things have been hectic (obviously paperwork lost) They have my time sheet with the parents signature on it proving I worked. My week totaled 58 hours but I am only getting paid for 46. They said they will pay me the OT when I redo the note and turn it in. Isn't this illegal? They had all of my signed time sheets. Don't we get paid for service rendered and not be allowed to hold pay for missing patient? I learned last night that they with help pay from another nurse because she wrote her notes on the wrong forms. How are they getting away with this?

    The 9-5 office jobs that are begging for new grads may have unwritten issues why they cannot keep experienced staff. A local agency likes to hire new grads, promises them the moon and full time hours, then literally throws them to the wolves.

    9-5 office jobs are coveted positions that want strong experienced nurses. Or they pay low with the extreme minimum benefits due to low insurance reimbursement. You are going to find it difficult to find utopia in a day shift office setting as a new grad in the metro Denver area this is reality.

    You may have better luck as a new grad in acute or subacute rehab day shift. But even office jobs may have evening or weekend requirements especially if an office that deals with a healthy population such as OB/GYN, perinatology, or pediatrics. Again these offices may consider new grads but prefer experienced nurses for their top notch triage and assessment skills.

    This was a mistake. Learn from it. Move on. Now you know. Try honesty with school admin that you were so anxious you listened to your mom's suggestion not aware of potential consequences (don't say widely used or any other excuse). What is done is done. They can tell if the level is a low dose metabolite.

    Your honestly may still result in program ineligibility. They may let you withdraw rather than outright rejection. They may let you reapply. It's likely better to come forward before the medical review officer contacts the school with the result.

    . If you feel your anxiety needs treatment seek professional assistance.

    Now you know better. Move on. Learn. Don't make the same mistake again. Become stronger by experience.

    I do a great job at what I do. And I can be a CNA and will be a CNA. I am totally okay about her passing. It's understandable that you may think that. But my boss wants to promote me and raise my pay and I haven't even been there for 4 months yet. And the other CNAs there have been there for a while
    and haven't been promoted or naything, I wonder why. Oh, because they abuse the residents there and don't treat them with the least amount of respect. I hate my coworkers because they don't treat me or help me out when I need it. And they like to start a lot of HighSchool drama in a professional setting. Some of my coworkers I love to death and wish them the best, but others like the one I was talking about needs to be revoked from her job. I do my best to keep professional and have helped even the crappiest of CNAs, nurses, and other healthcare employees even if I don't get the least of a thank you. Working with these people have changed my outlook on life. I used to hate everyone and hated life, but working with geriatrics I have been taught so much. Yet again, I'm a 17 year old junior in high school and have no knowledge about the world as you all-mighty-wise nurses do. I appreciate you putting your opinion out there though.
    I'm shocked you can work in direct patient care as a minor who cannot legally consent to abiding by HIPAA or legally administer medication. While many high schools & vocational schools offer NA& MA courses the students are ineligible for certification & regular employment until they turn the age of majority (18 in most states, 19 in states like Nebraska).

    If you witness abuse as a healthcare worker you have a moral, ethical and legal obligation to report through state mandated channels. Failure to report abuse against residents opens you up to legal liability. (One reason minors can't work for pay in healthcare in my state they can't agree to abide by HIPAA or mandated reporter laws)

    You are young. You are NOT yet a young adult, you are a teen. Observe. Learn. Grow.
