LPN acronym

What acronyms have you heard for LPN? I have heard Lower Paid Nurse and Little Play Nurse. The first is true, not so much the second! Just curious what else you guys have heard!

Specializes in Telemetry, Case Management. Has 30 years experience.

Low Paid Nurse

Little Play Nurse

Lowlife Peon Nurse:p

Likable Pleasant Nurse:nurse:

I'm sorry that ANY acronyms even exist.

That has to be very disheartening.

A nurse is a nurse... is a nurse.

Lovely, Pretty Nurse. I just made that up about myself, too! I have heard of the other ones, and it is a negative statement made to degrade LPNs. I refuse to allow that to get to me.

I've only heard acronyms online. So far I haven't come across any in "real life". Then again, the only nurses I work with are other LPN's and we don't sit around and call each other names!
