  2. RN volunteer EMS and Emergency Dept?
    In a small community (I'm guessing so if you have volunteer ems), I think it would be extremely beneficial to have the EMT cert on your résumé when applying for an ER position. If the hospital...

  5. I want to be an lpn..
    But I also don't agree with doing something purely because your boyfriend tells you to. Make a list of pros and cons and decide for yourself. Good luck!

  9. LPN to.......CNA?!
    Ok fair enough. I just see so many RNs who can't even find work, and ninety something percent of hospitals don't hire LPNs anymore--let alone in the ED..... I certainly don't think I am lowly, but...

    It sounds horrible, I know. BUT--when you get into LTC, things change a little from a medical standpoint. A lot of nursing home residents have advanced directives-DNR or DNRCC. Sometimes there's a...

    I don't think so....It has to be a misunderstanding. Either I am reading this wrong, or you are misunderstanding. I would think they would talk to you if you weren't doing something to their liking....
