  3. Does Nursing School=No Life Literally?
    During my LPN program I had class for 8 hours a day four days a week, and my school was 45 minutes away. I also worked two 12 hour shifts per week , leaving one "day off" a week. In the beginning of...

  4. How does anyone do double shifts?  I'm tired after 40 hours
    I worked weekend doubles for a while as an LPN while going to RN school full time. I also had a PRN job (12's) on the side. It was hard, but the only way that I could afford to get through school...

  5. What do RN's want out of CNA's
    Just the fact that you have that attitude almost guarantees that you'll be a good aide! Personally, I want my aides to notify me of changes, like the other nurses mentioned. Beyond that and...

  6. How long did it take for some of you to find a job after you passed the state exam?
    What area of the country are you in? Do you know anybody that works for a nursing home? Did you apply to the place you did your clinicals at?

  7. Stress of being an LTC aide CNA just too great for the pay!
    Try to go easy on us nurses :) I never understood why nurses were so crabby until I became one! The nurses generally want vitals by a certain time so that they can give meds (b/p meds, dig. etc). If...

  11. BP situation
    It's different in LTC because the primary nurse generally "knows" the residents pretty well health wise. You know who your brittle diabetics are, or the ones who always run high/always run low. You...

  13. RN pre req GPA
    I would also recommend, as many others already have, getting A's in your remaining pre-reqs. Re-taking A&P isn't a bad idea either, because you really have to know that stuff! It will come in handy...

  14. Should I just cut my loses and choose another career path?
    I have to disagree with the above posters. Nursing schools look at your science classes, and other classes like algebra that they require as pre-reqs. The schools I applied to couldn't care less...

  16. MA v.s LPN on job availability alone
    From what I see, working as an MA has quite a few limitations. The jobs are usually 9-5 office types, with pay being much below what an LPN would make in LTC. If you were going to nursing school I...

  23. Which is easier - LPN or RN?
    Our RN program is much fewer class hours, but more clinicals, where the LPN program was a TON of class hours, and clinicals only once a week. I wouldn't say that the LPN program is easier, it's...
