  1. Pigeon-holed
    Don't apologize. I had to rant too. And I completely agree with you. Double standards abound. If I were to do 1/10th of what is done around me I wouldn't have a job!

    I haven't. It seems that it would be an exercise in futility.

  3. Pigeon-holed
    It gets old at times. I'm sitting 1:1 with a psych patient. A nurse comes from the other side of the unit to get me to help another CNA change a soiled patient. That same nurse's patient. Now I have...

  4. Facial Hair
    I have a beard at work. Yes, off work too, lol. Seriously, I fit the N95 ok. Don't let that tip the scales. How often will you wear one?

  5. CSN Practical Nursing
    There are no prerequisite courses per se. Take the TEAS V. If they extended the deadline I'm surprised. The class is small.

  6. CSN Practical Nursing
    Orientation was this morning. Small class of about nine folks. Since my first two semester are one class each, I'm gonna add the courses remaining to do the bridge. When I'm done I can roll right...

  7. My back needs a break
    If I can't get ED then I'd prefer NICU or SICU (ok any ICU). With the EMT I was looking at being a flight nurse. But it still comes back to FNP in the ED.

  8. My back needs a break
    Well yes indeed. My plan is to go through EMT-Intermediate, obtain my RN, somehow get into the ED & work there through NP school. My end game is FNP in the ED.

  9. My back needs a break
    This place doesn't have a PICU, NICU or PCU. ED, Med/Surg, ICU, Psych only. Weird, huh?

  10. My back needs a break
    I've signed up for EMT training (B & I only). Currently, I work as a hospital CNA. I get placed with combative 1:1's or put on rehab units. Oh yeah, I'm 6'2" and 290lb. After three years of this, I...

  11. LPN first it seems
    Sorry but you too didn't read what I said. I know there isn't a waitlist. But if you don't meet point requirements (the minimum isn't known until it's determined the number of applicants and their...

  12. LPN first it seems
    And I said there was a "wait". Not so much a waitlist. But telling the applicant there's no waitlist and to reapply next cycle makes for a delay regardless. In Nevada, getting into a nursing program...

  13. LPN first it seems
    That's how they officially work, yes. But its those points that can hold people up. If an applicant has say 27 points and the admission cutoff is 29 you have to apply next cycle. What you don't...

  15. On to my Plan B
    Although I got into my local LPN program, they're not offering the two-term ''Fast Track'' option. So it's the traditional four-term program. From Fall 2013 to Spring 2015. This didn't fall into my...

  17. Dilemma
    I am a 38 year old CNA with just 3 years experience. I recently was accepted to my local CC's LPN program that's 4 semesters long. That's Fall 2013-Spring 2015. I can also take their one-term...

    Hospital. Not too bad. Far better than most LTC's.

  19. LPN program at CSN Nevada
    There's no fast track but we're still in! The classes are BIOL 189, 223, 224 & 251. General biology, A&P 1&2, Micro. After 189 this Fall, you could take A&P 1 with Micro in the spring. Even still,...

  20. LPN first it seems
    I got into the LPN program at CSN for this Fall. I'll be done Spring 2015. The first Fall (2013) & Spring (2014) are just one class since I've done the other classes already for those terms. So, I...

  21. LPN program at CSN Nevada
    I got my letter of acceptance as well. The only thing I can recommend for us is to take the science sequence to prepare for the LPN-RN bridge! PN 100L & BIOL 189 sounds like a good schedule. Myself I...

  23. Cultivating options
    Fortunately I am doing this with my fiancé on board. She works and makes ~$45k/yr. I guess my main concern is saving my back some so I can make it through RN school AND raise the boys. Being...

  24. What to do for work during school
    Not sure where you are located, but at my CC it's a total of 6 units and will cost similar to what my CNA did. About $700 + licensure exam fees.

  25. What to do for work during school
    I'm looking at Tele Tech but I'm told the rad techs are cross trained. It looks like phlebotomy may win out. It's a one term program of 3 classes at a community college.
