  2. Do you wanna be an RN??
    I'm probably in the minority, but no, I have no desire to return for my RN. And it has nothing to do with age, as I'm pretty young (26). I'm perfectly content as an LPN with my pay, job, and career...

  3. 3am-3pm- sleep schedule??
    We have a few nurses who do this schedule at my work, and the majority of them sleep from 8pm-2am, so they get about 6 hours before going in.
