After not being admitted (much to my dismay) into the RN program I applied for, I have decided to enter an LPN program instead. Just wondering if there are any other LPN's hanging around here. Where do you work? Do you enjoy it? How and in what ways does it differ from an RN? Any advice and info would be fabulous! Thanks!!
This website has an abundance of LPNs. Please visit us and enjoy some discourse over at the LPN Corner

I work at a large nursing home/rehab center, and have been employed at this workplace for approximately 15 months. I spent the first 14 months in LTC (the nursing home unit) before being involuntarily transferred to the acute care rehab unit. I am now starting IVs, operating CPM machines, dressing complicated wounds, passing meds to 15 very sick postsurgical patients, giving many lovenox SQ injections, and dealing with a whole lot of hip replacements, knee replacements, amputations, sacral fractures, shoulder displacements, etc. It is, at times, overwhelming because the patients and family members can be so needy. These people place incredible demands upon you without regarding the fact that you have other patients to care for.
