Just asking. I am a LPN x 2 years and feel unsupported from a variety of fields as to what "I thought" my professional capacity was to be. I find that LPN's are OVERLOOKED and BELITTLED from several angles, from pts, RN's, DR's, housekeeping, etc. If I went through a measly 1 year worth of intense nursing training, am I not just as valued to the medical profession?
Mind you, there are those that are very supportive and inspiring. But I just get this overall vibe that LPN's don't count. I am proud of where I am today and what I have learned and gained. I know I have so much more to learn and relish that opportunity. Why do I see some LPN's ashamed of their role and title? Is a PA or NP ashamed they are not a Doctor? Is not each role/title valued within that roles'/titles' capacity?
