    That's what I initially thought, however after meeting today with the RN in charge I was informed I was to be setting up and administering the TPN. After starting the infusion and assessing for a few...

  2. CA LVN allowed to set up TPN?
    Checked both my basic nursing and med-surg nursing books, they both briefly (a few paragraphs) give an overview of what PN/TPN is. The basic nursing book gives no instruction on administering, as it...

  5. CA LVN allowed to set up TPN?
    Also, what would I ask the CABRN? Not really sure since it's an LVN scope of practice question.

  6. CA LVN allowed to set up TPN?
    I contacted the CABVNPT but I won't get a reply until Tuesday. I found a sheet from the California Vocational Nurse Educators (updated 2010) and it says infusing tpn or other fluids, blood withdrawal...

  10. Talking with the DON tomorrow, any tips/advice/words of wisdom?
    Thank you both for your advice. Now that I think about it, I've seen quite a few nurses come and go during my time in LTC, so I guess being fired is a pretty common occurrence in this area. Which...

  11. Talking with the DON tomorrow, any tips/advice/words of wisdom?
    In the later part of last year I was terminated from my first LVN job. It was a per diem day shift float position and honestly was a lot for me to handle. The whole situation really brings me down...

  12. I feel like a FAILURE, what do I do now?
    I know exactly how you feel. I was fired last year, and every application I fill out always asks if I have been previously terminated. I either put "let go during probationary period" or, more...

  13. Fired from my first job.
    Honestly, I feel relieved. I'm going to miss the income though, and it's going to suck working just as a CNA, not to mention looking for another job and explaining why I was fired.

    Thank you everyone for your words. I guess I should be happy I have a seasonal job through Mollen (although I have no idea how that will work out for me). It's just that by now, I thought I would...

  16. Depressed about not finding a job
    Well, I think the title pretty much sums up my situation. Graduated in August 2011, passed NCLEX in December, and still no job. I've been a CNA since 2007, and I currently work as an ACNA in a...

  17. The War On Fat
    It's true, changing to a plant based diet is not easy. It's a lifestyle change. It takes time. But most things in life aren't easy, and certainly not things that are worth it. You want to talk...

    Yes, it is true, there are fat everyone. I'd say there is a good chance many vegetarians are overweight, since they do seem to eat more dairy than the average meat eater. As for your comment on...

  19. The War On Fat
    I'm basically with the argument that being overweight or obese is unhealthy. If someone is like this, they most likely aren't giving their body the proper foods and nutrition it needs. I advocate for...
