I need some help!!!! i am currently in the process of sitting for boards and i was wondering if anybody started to apply for jobs as an LPN before taking their boards?? Ive heard/seen a few people have mixed responses about it. With the current saturated market, i thought it would be good to get a head start, ill be licensed by the end of the month, for that im sure (failureis not an option, i will pass !) Just wanting some feed back from those who are in the same situation now, or have recently been int he same situation !!! Peace and Love
im currently a student at new courtland and they are closing because of issues with germantown home and nc cant put more money into the school.. my education is great there and i went on a grant for half of it.hate that its closing in sept when im done... having all my bsn prereqs, except micro, being wait listed, or being told itll take me another 4 years for a bsn program i had to do something different... philly nursing market is over saturated no matter if the letters say lpn, bsn, adn, msn and so on... but persistence pays off.. follow your gut,thry even want cna to have experience!! people will always have their opinions... but as a person who has worked in homecare, rehab, snf, operating room and mental health, being a aide is what helped me to understand this is what i wanted vs. jumping into a high program that i wouldnt be perpared for... but the lpn program has helped my critical thinking and clinical strength.. best of luck to you in whatever you choose!!!
id is nrver longer than 0.1 and yes, change the needle first!!!!
im not sure what type of learner u are but im not big on reading much... (sad but true)! i watch mosby videos and youtube also i listen to it over and over again to see how to do things and walk myself through it!! i also practice perfoming the act as well.. the nclex study guides are a life saver.. remember critical thinking you use daily... its just about doing the action that makes the most sense!!! hopefully this helps and peace be unto you!!
never speak neg about yourself... words are power!!! the lpn is condensed into 1 yr equal toyour first yr of adn... lpn is lots of clinical and application 60%, theory makes up 40%, adn isthe other way around... depends on what you feel you are stronger in easy?? not hardly!!! id suggest go talk to a adn program rep as well as lpn rep. ask lots of question!!!
you continusly find areas on your body for intramuscular, sub q, and iv sites!!!! you think about needle sticks and the size, you have nightmares about folleys, ostomys,you hear about people who use drugs and all you can think it hmmmm hope they dont have a mitrovalve prolaspe, you live on 4/5 hours of sleep... and caffine is therapy!!!!
thank you.. i needed to see this.. we are two weeks into fundementals and i feel like im drowing right now!!! but i can pull through this!!! thank you for motivation
we live in a society that discriminates in all aspects, whether it be race, gender or curtual beliefs..we need to stop being so jaded against others for stuff thst has been tolerated for years!!! i can agree with all the previous post... being a minority and having an ethic name doesnt mean bad or that people hate" you...or that you have it worse than anybody else... being white, or non minority doesnt mean they have it better!!! im sorry but ... be the best you that you can be... no matter what race, gender, etc.. we are all in this together !
it depends on what type of student you are...i started orientation and found out i was overwhelmed!!! so my psrt time i quit and decided to keep my on call job... direct support for mentally disabled.. nit hard work!!! if you have money saved, and a great support... i personally wouldnt work!!! temp set back, for long term rewards snd being able to give it your all!!! if you believe in a higher power, ill tell you to pray about it!!! best of luck
if its important to you... and youve worked this hard... fight for it!!!
man oh man i know how u feel!!! gaving natrually curly thick hair is a blessing and a pain!!! i plan to let it air dry and wear it pinned up or in a ponytail because the last thing id wanna do it fling my wet moosued up hair in a patient, classmate, or my own face while starting an iv!!! i know it sucks... but i think ponytail holders will have to be our best friends in clinicals!!
chile join the club!!!! ive been reading through dosage and calculations, physiology and anything i can get my hands on!! but i dont start until the 17!!!
