Jacksonville here and have a question...

  1. 0 [font=Comic Sans MS]Hi everyone and Happy New Year!
    [font=Comic Sans MS]I'm in the LPN program and graduating in may 05--returning to school in jan 06 to do bridge to RN. I would like to start looking for a job already--anyone know of a great place to work as an LPN, who would also work with me during my transition to RN?
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Also, how long does it usually take to get onto the CNA I board?
    [font=Comic Sans MS]its been a while now since i did the paperwork--which was messed up twice --CNA II will be completed in Feb., so I just like to be able to work and get my foot in a door.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]thanks for any replies--IM me if you can

    So you are a CNA II. Do you want to do hospital nursing when you graduate? If you do, then you should work at a hospital while you are in school. That way certain things that should be second nature to you as an RN...will be. Onslow Memorial doesn't pay much for a CNA II but its not worth it (money-wise) to drive to Craven Regional. Get the experience while you can as a CNA II. Even if you work PRN.

    Thanks for your reply. I'll be an LPN in May, and it's really sad that this town is so "sorry" when it comes to paying ppl. i know of someone making $9.00 as an LPN at a Dr office...?! you can make $16 in a LTC and $18 in Wilmington.
    I'll try Craven regional-- i know other hospitals hire lpn's, just now this town. :angryfire
