Quote from mrstawlvn
not all rns but there are quite a few that will let you know one way or the other that they are the "rn" and your "just an lvn" and will quickly tell you that you need to go back to school if you want to suggest to them what to do (even if you have the skills and knowledge).
you might as well be paid more for the skills and knowledge that you do have by attaining an rn license. i was an lvn for four years, and i concluded that it made no sense for me to perform duties that were almost identical to the rn without receiving the same pay.
now that i am an rn, nothing about my nursing practice has changed. the major difference is that i'm earning a lot more money now that the rn title is behind my name.
