There is always acute rehab, subacute rehab, long term care, psychiatric inpatients long term acute care. Subacute psychiatric
Regarding school nursing don't only check board of nursing regulations but also your state department of education requirements. In my state there are specific requirements even for a substitute school nurse. Every state is different. Many require BSN + school nurse certification. Others require a pulse, CPR card and a nursing license (RN or LPN)
My wife does Clinical Research and she still has to go ask patients for samples, give presentations to large groups, etc. so you never really escape 'people', but it does reduce the number considerably.
Maybe consider Nursing Informatics...
The grandmother that complained that I was too focused on the complex pediatric patient and didn't notice her come downstairs and greet her. Filed a formal complaint too.
Three years? She could have attended and graduated nursing school a few times by now. This is a limited license rarely granted to aides, most are international registered nurses that are ineligible to be licensed as RN in CA. Is it really worth it? Yes they are extremely specific and picky if each required specialty does not have the mandated time and verification of skills performed by the employer. Too long since you took the pharmacology course? Too bad. Three years is usually the maximum that bvnpt will consider an application.
Here is a reference to state laws regarding rest & meal breaks:
For most industries (transportation is one of the few with regulations requiring rest breaks for safety reasons) there is NO mandatory break (rest or meal) requirement per federal law (only 7 or 8 states have requirements for adults, minors are different). The only federal labor rule is if your break is less than 20 min you must be paid for it.
If one cannot stay awake overnight then perhaps reconsider working overnights. If you worked NICU and were paid for your break since you had to be available to respond for a patient emergency would you use your break for a nap? Would you take a nap if you were an insomniac that worked day shift?
The whole point of an overnight PDNs is someone to stay awake and monitor/care for a medical fragile or technology dependent client. I can't see ever consider taking a nap while on duty...
When U works nights one needs a break. Even if it is half a hour. By law. Who in their right mind can work a 8 hour shift without a break? And talking about the hospital, We do get breaks.
Grounds for termination and even action on a nursing license. You are not being unreasonable. You wouldn't be able to sleep on shift in LTC or hospital and HH/PDN is no different.
CA requires a fee for each application.
Missing an Exam Appointment
If you fail to arrive for the exam appointment or fail to reschedule/unschedule without giving the appropriate notice, you will forfeit your exam fee (and scheduling fee if applicable) and your ATT will be invalidated. You will be required to reregister and pay another exam fee. Failure to take the exam will be noted in your registration as an incident report which will be viewable by your board of nursing/regulatory body.
You are responsible if you delegate inappropriately or provide inadequate supervision. The LPN has his/her own scope and license.
Consult an attorney.
It's not common for notice to sue to be filed so quickly as it usually takes months to know full extent of injuries and effects
Contact your embassy or an attorney. Presenting fraudulent credentials can lead to jail time. You knowingly allowe a fake credential to be passed and got caught. You are now stuck with no income. And you had a "problem" working as a receptionist? Did they make you stop working? Is this "problem" going to make your situation with MoH worse?
Or "what is an incoherent thought"?
Thank you Helper-T!
I'm so happy there is someone out there who can sympathize with my situation!
I really do appreciate your advice and it sounds like you are well on your way.
I guess the next step for me is to research the school a bit more for some clarity and start gathering all of the pertinent information. Any tips or advice while pursuing this further??
Do you personally know anyone who has completed this program successfully??
Also, price?? (rough estimate- I know this will vary for each person and their prior education)
