  6. LVN's who work 3 12's
    I work 5 8's now, and it sucks. I would much prefer 3 12's, or even 4 10's.

  7. Have you ever worked through a agency?
    There seems to be an erroneous assumption that all agency work is in the field of home health. As a new nurse I worked for an agency that staffed LTC call off's. It didn't require that much...

  20. The oddest question ever asked on Allnurses!
    I'm in CA and it's the same here. My question is whether or not my LVN license would trump a cosmetology license in regards to shampooing only. Obviously, I couldn't claim to be working under my LVN...
