  3. Health Care Aide Clinicals
    Aide work is really sink or swim. I said to my preceptor this month that I made it as a CCA at *** I'll make it anywhere. He laughed because we both worked at that same facility and he knew what it...

    Fiona please don't read this as snarky but that isn't necessarily true. I have seen new grad coming out of the same program I am in being able to start IVs without extra training. We have asked them...

  7. Iv Initiation.
    Isn't this in your classes? I'm just a little confused because I'm in a Practical nursing program and as a student I can start IVs without having to take a course because it was in our classes.

  8. Seeking Advice - CNA
    I very much doubt they would accept it. Throughout Canada all of our programs are pretty similar, PSW-HHA-CCA-SCA but each province does not recognize the other provincial training. I went to school...

  9. Lpn program and Clinicals
    I would think all programs are different. My first semester we only had a practicum. We did all of our classes and then we went into ltc and did personal care. Second semester we did clinicals and...

  11. Medical procedures
    I'm not doing your homework. I would just like to know if you're really from Canada, because these questions do not make sense for a Canadian nurse.

  13. The future of nursing. Everybody is impacted. Big discussion in SK.
    All money being spent on healthcare does not stay here, that is false. I personally work with nurses who have immigrated here and send money back to their home countries. So yes, economies are doing...

  16. The future of nursing. Everybody is impacted. Big discussion in SK.
    This is how I feel after our meeting with a past SALPN president. I do not feel that patient safety is being challenged. RNs need to stay in their own lane and not try and tell LPNs what their...
