Hello! I am an LVN who works at an LTC facility in Texas. The overwhelming majority of travel nursing agencies avoid hiring LVNs/LPNs, as they prefer RNs with some acute care experience.

He Stays At Home And I Send My Checks To Him To Pay The Household Bills. I Have Only Went On One And That Worked Out Ok. It Is Nice To Have Some One You Can Talk To Though. I Would Like To Go To Calf. Or Back To Hawaii.
