Not to sound harsh, but why is this a concern for you?
Diversity in the workplace is important and everyone brings their own strengths to the table (especially when we are such a multi-cultural population). Respecting your co-workers goes a long way to being a team player.
Furthermore, it is great we live in a country that a has the freedom for people to speak whichever language they feel most comfortable with.
Just my two cents
AHS has signs on the units stating that "English is the language of the workplace".
It's not enforced. It's a joke. I've had patients complain to me about previous shifts and I refer them to patient relations. I had one patient refuse to go to patient relations because they were afraid of being branded "racist". I try and explain that unless patients voice their concerns nothing will be done.

Vending machines are iffy. The young? Fresh food!
Then there are the brand new nurses with 3 weeks of experience who think all the "old nurses" need to get out of the way and let them have it. Makes me want to go, "Here honey, you can have my CVI/Open Heart job. Been doing critical care for 38 years and I still don't have a clue what I'm doing. I know absolutely nothing about technology. I need a wheelchair to get to a code." Shuffling off to the old folks home now.
Text speak. RU h8trz rding this?
Would you chart in text? Then don't expect us to read it here!
Especially if you are ranting that LPNs aren't real nurses and you are pre-nursing major (I mean what in hades is pre-nursing?)
I once explained the difference between LPNs and RNs in terms that people could understand. I live in a military town. LPN = enlisted. RN = officer.
Both roles/ranks valuable. Many skills overlap.
Uhm, one year old thread resurrection for a one time poster.
Hi! I live in Montreal, QC and am planning on taking a two year nursing program at a vocational center to become a LPN (or a nursing assistant I guess) eventually I want to become a registered nurse, but this just seems the most practical right now because I don't have my high school diploma just my equivalency.
So what I'm wondering is, once I get my degree from the vocational center how do I go about getting a Degree to become an actual nurse?? Would I have to go to cegep or could I potentially apply to a university like McGill as a mature student??? Or with the degree as an lpn would it be easier to get accepted to a uni out of province??? Help!!
I'm asking because I'm wondering if it's more worthwhile to just spend the year getting my high school diploma and then going to cegep next fall?
Do you have a BScN?
CIC outlines the process for migration and there many threads on moving to Canada.
Hi I am a new user and would like some advice. I am a Licensed practical nurse from Alberta with no experience because I had my license in June 2017;I am looking for a job in Ottawa cause I am bilingual (English and French) however, I don't have any clue of how the job market is there. I leave in Calgary and after 80 applicationS I didn't have any opportunity yet. I don't know if moving will help. Thank you again
Exactly .. and them complaining about my disability .. because they would frustrate
The parenteral manual is the bible on the drug. It tells you who may give it and by which method. What side effects may occur, how it affects people, which IV solutions it's compatible with, etc. If it appears with a med calc exam, all the information is there. So you would only get the pages relevant to the drug in question. Not the entire manual.
Routine surgeries aren't "under pressure". Trauma's yes, lap cholis, C-sections that are scheduled, etc, relatively stress frees.
You at more likely to be stressed out by the Type A personalities found in the ORs and the eye rolling over the masks.
i am a new graduate for the LPN program in Alberta Canada and I am a little confused about the parenteral manual.
The manual apparently has changed recently and is not the same as what I learned while in school. I have an interview coming up and I am just wondering if anyone can tell me which key points of the manual I need to know to calculate the dosage problems correctly!
Turns out I actually got the job, there is hope out there for new graduates!
