  3. Why are LPNs allowed to supervise RNs in Long-Term Care?

  6. If a phlebotomist corrected you on order of draw, what would you do?
    I wouldn't be mad. I mean, a phlebotomist specializes in drawing blood, I don't, I just have to because I get an order for a stat lab. That's not something they teach in nursing school, it's another...

    That really sucks! I can only imagine how you feel as often times in the heat of mental burnout I reflect on how truly grateful I am to be in a position to get mentally burntout! Have you ever...

  8. Was I at fault? the nurse embarrassed me in front of others.
    The patient to CNA ratio in the hospital can be more than slightly unfair. I worked on a cardiac step-down unit and our rooms were constantly full. We would have 2 CNA's for 40 patients. Needless to...

  10. Why are LPNs allowed to supervise RNs in Long-Term Care?
    I don't deny that there are some very good LPN's. My best friend happens to be an LPN and if she were unit manager I wouldn't complain because she knows a lot and she has people and communication...

  11. Why are LPNs allowed to supervise RNs in Long-Term Care?
    What I don't understand is why are LPN's allowed to supervise RN's in Long-term care? Due to the education of an RN vs an LPN, this has caused problems! I'm an RN and have been working in Long-term...

    I'm a RN and I work in Long term care at the moment. I'm a humble nurse, but I also am a confident nurse. I handle problems when they arise, regardless of the age of my patients; patients have the...
