newish lpn would be considerable less costly than experienced lpn, soon-to-be-rn.

i'm thinking it's a matter of simple economics.

I can't leave unless I come up with several thousands of dollars they gave me for school.

This is the important part of your post. YOU CAN'T LEAVE. So why should they keep you happy? In their minds, there's no reason to do so. In their minds, you should be GRATEFUL that they gave you the tuition money. Anytime you sign yourself up for tuition or a sign on bonus, you're basically saying, "Whatever you do to me, I'm going to have to suck it up, because I won't be able to leave for x months/years."

As part of your display of "professional behaviour", you must learn to keep your composure at all times. Attack the problem NOT the person. Accept responsibility willingly and with confidence. Do NOT ever, ever, ever discuss any other employee's conduct with anyone not in a supervisory position. Do not air your disappointment or unhappiness to your friends. Be positive - never negative.

Go back to the start line and deal quietly with your painful disappointment. You have time with this facility and they must have felt you worth the investment of tuition money. Prove to them that you ARE the best candidate for any supervisory position any where they might need you.

Lastly, be fair to everyone. Treat everyone respectfully irregardless of your feelings ........... do these things and you will win. Oh, and be patient, too. Best wishes. Been there, done it.

Put aside all negative energy, do your best, give your best performance, then see what happens. Take sometime to check out with your own values, then Pick what battle that suit your need... Things don't always look as it is..

I don't understand all of your post, but vent away. We are here to listen and help as best as we can.

Get busy and re-vamp your professional resume (CV), and get the hell out of there. Let them know when you leave, in a professional manner, about your disapproval. Apply everywhere for jobs, and think outside the box as well, ie: schools, doctors offices, etc. Try to stay positive and do things that relax you and calm you. I certainly would not be going back there either, unless you really think you will need the work in future. Try not to let this affect you at work - I know it's hard. NOTHING p****s people off more than walking around with a happy face and a big smile, and a cheerful demeanor! This has happened to me to, I walked into a job one day, and was told after the morning session was over that I didn't have a job and I'd busted my butt setting up the new computer system, staying back after hours, etc - you get the picture.

Negative energy will come and haunt you, and affect you at these work places, that is why if you can, get out ASAP. But don't let other people's negative attitudes affect you - YOU rule your life and need to make yourself happy.

Continue studying if you are and focus on that, your family and things that make you happy instead.

They may have other plans for you once you have the RN. Do let them know (in a professional manner) that you are disappointed that you didn't get that job and that you are interested in moving "up". There may be another position that will be opening that they have in mind for you. Or you may not have appeared interested...you may have been so busy doing your job you missed making someonw aware you were interested.

Keep doing your job well. Develop your Rn skills and repay the hours you owe them. Then if you still feel unhappy, look for another position--as an experienced RN.

All pure garbage. You already know the job. Even though you just got or will get your RN, in long term care, you are Not new. I am noticing a trend in LTC, to hire LPN's as unit managers. And the strange thing is, the newer the better. A friend of mine was passed over for a unit manager position (she is a 15 year RN, the other candidate a 20 year LPN) for a 1 year LPN. No clinical experience, whatsoever. Also, the two candidates passed over have been with the company over five years. I am thinking Benjamin is at it again...there is no other explanation. Tell them you want a supervisory position. If they don't provide you with one, leave. It will be hard for them to ask for their money back, while at the same time, holding you back. Are you over forty by any chance?

I am in my late 20's.

I was thinking this as well.

I actually started hearing rumors about this last week (good way to find out huh?) and was so angry that I took a few days to ask the DON to see what was up because I didn't want to act rashly or immaturely.

Then when I was done speaking with him I vented away on here. Sorry it doesn't make sense in certain areas lol.

Thank you for all your encouraging words. I think what I will do is keep working at my job until I pass my boards then apply away at other places. After all I never signed anything saying I'd work full time so I can work part time or even per diem for them and still be within the contract. Then maybe I can eventually save up and pay them back. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer!!!! :heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat

I don't want to use too many identifying details but here goes.

I've worked in LTC almost 10 years, for the same employer. I started off as a support aide, was trained by them to be a CNA. Then they gave me $1000 towards my LPN. Then they paid for me to get my RN. I worked full time as a charge nurse LPN while going to RN school full time. I can't even describe how difficult it was. That hardest thing by far I've ever done.

The full time RN for my shift left. She's been unofficially teaching me how to do her job because she knew she'd have to leave soon and it was assumed I'd get her position when I was done.

.

In life (and work) we should NEVER assume. Unless we have it writing or talked about it and reached a final conclusion, everything is considered fair game.

I assumed before with not-so-good result. I assume no longer, no matter how glaringly obvious-I want your words and thoughts on subject matter.
