  2. LPN Scope of Practice By State
    In NC, we are less limited than other states. But our education reflects that as well. We can do IV pushes, most IV meds, etc. while many states are very strict about that. We can't do an initial...

    I'd report the pressure sores and then I'd get out. You can even get out and then report it. But they need more care than you can provide. You are risking your certification. You state that you can...

  4. LPNs in Children's Hospitals?
    I worked NICU/PICU/ICU a few years back as an LPN. Some hospitals will hire us, but its hard to find. Much easier if you go for RN. I did the RN pre-reqs and they weren't much different from LPN....

  7. More Examples of posting on Facebook and getting fired
    I agree. But that doesn't keep racists out of the hospital. Patients can be just the same or worse. And what about the daycare worker who walks in wearing scrubs and saying racist statements?...

  8. More Examples of posting on Facebook and getting fired
    This! Exactly! Maybe the person was just tired of the people that cause trouble by rioting and breaking into businesses. People say they wish someone would nuke all if the middle east. But I...

  9. The nurse you dread working after
    Uugghh. Those nurses. That stuff is overkill. Its one thing to leave a note about positioning if a nurse find something that helps. Its another when the nurse wants to control what goes on when they...

  10. More Examples of posting on Facebook and getting fired
    I'm sure each person who says she should have been fired has said something stupid before as well. People are entitled to their opinions no matter how wrong or ignorant. Now if they cause harm to...

  11. More Examples of posting on Facebook and getting fired
    Understandable, but I don't represent a company if I'm not on the clock. I don't have tattoos, but these hospitals make employees cover tattoos at work and they are free to uncover them outside...

    The comment was inappropriate. But it had nothing to do with her job or place of work. I'm sure many will disagree with me. But, these companies shouldn't have the power to own us off the clock. If...

    I agree. Its child abuse when a kid is overweight (and its not from true medical issues). The child can't go out and get their own food. They can only eat what is provided to them. Parents have a...

  17. New PDN...which case to choose
    2 hours isn't nearly enough for a class. The families get more than that at the hospital. Its dangerous for the families to know more than the nurse, because they will use that against you in one way...

    If that's the case, the agency will eventually be made public and could have a long road ahead with the trouble they are asking for.

    You are very misinformed. Agencies aren't supposed to hire new grads as ins requirements are for a minimum of a year of experience. Yes, orientation depends on the agency. Most don't encourage nurses...
