    All that matters is, that you have self respect for yourself and know your worth. You're always going to have people in this field who think they're better than you based on there title. Don't let that bother you. Be proud of your accomplishments no matter how small they may be. Nursing school is not easy, it doesn't matter what level you on.

    I feel like, having to take all my pre req over is a waste of a year. I'm in nyc and all the community colleges are run by cuny. There has to be another school that will accept my credits. I did not want to take out anymore loans for school. I was so looking forward to starting school in sept and it was affordable. Might have to go through excelsior.

    Long story short. I just found out today that all my pre req from my LPN school Mildred Elley will not be accepted at any Cuny school in nyc. They said they're not accredited. I said how could that be, I was able to get my nursing license. I don't know what I'm going to do.

    Hi everyone, hope all is well.
    after a year in ltc I've decided it's not for me. I got into nursing because I wanted to make a difference, I wanted to educate and help people get better.

    I don't feel like I'm living up to my full potential in ltc. I take of 42 residents daily and it near impossible to them all the quality care I want to give and they deserve. At time I feel like I'm just a baby sitter, no matter how much I try to give them more of my time, the resources are just not there. I'm not here just for a paycheck, I want to improve in my skills, I want to care for different types of patient. Not just dementia patients.

    i feel stagnant and that's driving me crazy. So for that reason I do not want to work in ltc.
    I needed to vent thanks for listening. I start school in August for my RN

    I mean if a pt is on droplet isolation they should be confined to there room or wear a mask, people go in out of the rims without wearing gloves then come back and get on the computer. It's a mess. I don't practice like that. That's what I mean, I don't want to bring nothing home. Even after I wipe down the computers they do it again.

    Thanks for the input, but it pretty much boils down to this. I'm a nurse with no job working in bk part time, I just lost my apartment and I'm living out of my car. I'm in desperate need and I didn't know that was the ratio. I have no family to turn to. So when opportunity presents itself and you don't make the best of it, how are you suppose to feel? I made so many sacrifices and put so much time into becoming a nurse because it is my passion. When you put so much time into something and want so bad, then suffer the loses ihave it's a devastating feeling.

    Honestly how bad was my answer. I don't want to make that mistake twice. I never worked in LTC so 49 seemed above average to me
