My First Nursing Job!

  1. I was just hired on as a part time LPN at a local LTC. This is my first nursing job and I'm very excited! If anyone has any tips or advice I would really appreciate hearing it.

    I have been cross-trained in LTC where registered nurses are the ones who do bedside care, no LPNs or caregivers. Its a tough area, especially when your handling ventilated clients, edematous and been bedridden for years. You need to build and invest on proper body mechanics if you plan to stay on this area.
