I was just a little thrown off because I've never had to pay for my back ground check any where before but I did bring in the money order and it of course came back all clear so I start Monday. Times have definetly changed so I guess they have a reason for having new employees pay for it.
I just got a new job in LTC. I have to bring in a 17$ money order to pay for my background check but I've never had to do this for any other job.Is this a red flag or completely normal/common?
I kind of got the same vibes from karing with kindness.I will try Right at Home and i'm looking into moving more up north in the Monmouth County area so I hope there's more options up there.
Thank you for the feedback. I'm looking into moving more up north in the Monmouth County area so hopefully I'll have more luck up there.I doubt it though
Does anyone know of any nursing home in Ocean County that hires LPN's who have less then a year experience? I'm desperate and I need a job so bad.
Thank you for any leads you may have
I have an interview tomorrow at an orthopedic office and I have no clue what to expect. Has anyone worked in orthopedics before and maybe can give me some advice on what I need to know or what I might be doing? Thank you!
Hello everyone, has anyone worked for either of these two home care agencies? I don't have a lot of nursing experience and have been offered a possible job with these agencies and would like to know what to expect at a home health care job.I feel really awkward going into strangers houses.
Home Care in Manahawkin has a sign out front for hiring LPN's.
Wound Care, hospice, meds admin, etc.
I went to OCVTS in Toms River
I'm sure there's places that will hire an RN without their bachelors degree I was just frustrated and going by what I see while job searching and what I hear from people in the nursing career. I wouldn't let it discourage you at all from doing what you were gonna do.I wish I was an RN with at least an associates but I'm an LPN from a diploma program or whatever you wanna call it so there's not to many options for me. Good luck to you though!
Ocean County used to be a great place for LPN's experienced or not to find work. When I was a cna I saw brand new LPN's who just graduated get hired all the time.I knew I wanted to be a nurse too but unfortunately I waited way to long to go to school so by the time I was an LPN the world/economy was a completely different situation and nothing is easy anymore. I feel like this LPN license is pretty useless since from what I see and here every employer wants an RN with a bachelors degree so that's what i'm going to do. Ill work home care with its unsteady paychecks and what not while I go back to school and take care of my family at the same time.I know that sounds like a lot but I have no choice. the positive thing is that since I already have my LPN license then it won't take as long getting to RN because of the LPN to RN bridge programs that are out there.
I would never pre pour. There are to many risks that come along with that.God forbid state ever saw that Im sure you know how bad that would be.You seem like a very smart nurse for not copying the bad habits of your Co-workers(not saying they are bad nurses because I know plenty of amazing nurses that have the bad habit of pre pouring).I know that pre pouring also saves time but it's just not worth the risks in my opinion
Thank you guys for the information!I will try whatever it takes to reach my goal.I find it difficult in NJ to find work with my LPN license but I see a lot more for RN's so I know I need to climb up that nursing ladder
I was wondering if anyone knew of a college that offered LPN to RN that I could mostly do from home.I know excelsior does but I don't think they accept fafsa or anything like that.I really would love to get started and on my way to becoming an RN but i'm not sure where to begin and I have 3 kids so I definetly can't go back to a program that requires a lot classroom time. Also if anyone has any info on what it takes to become a school nurse in nj that would be great! Thank you!
