  2. Med surg to OR?
    Learning surgeon preferences and knowing where things are/what the heck they're asking me for has been hard. And I surely miss knowing what I'm doing. You're starting from square 1. Basic things that...

  14. Good places to work in Columbia or Lex???
    I disagree, nobody was being rude. She's right, many hospitals around here hire very few LPNs. I'm sorry if that fact upsets you. And the previous post spoke truth as well. You may find some doctor's...
