    yeah, and i am new and in orientation and yep, day shift is bad for not giving report on time .... my fault, nope!!! I've already overheard someone stating that I was the reason they couldn't get their work done, when they themselves said they are scattered....and they too take long lengthy breaks and lunches...not me!!!:typing

I have heard everything from oh you know that person is so and so's bf and so and so got caught doing drugs, and so and so blah blah blah...oh yeah, they are pleasantly confused, and they are the problem patient of the night...that is what I have heard...I have never given report yet...any pointers???

    hi...I am from Southeast KY and I too failed out just last semester of ADN program, but I passed the practical diploma program. I am now working. But orientation is only day 5 and stress/anxiety is really high.
    I am stuck with another person (worker)who doesn't know how to do primary care...
    enough said. The person has been there for years, but just today the person has blamed me for things that I had no control over. What do I do?
    I want to work + I want to go back to school, but just not where I live. I need a change of scenery and another school.

    Help I feel like a LP"I" (Licensed Practical Idiot)...I just got my LPN
    licensure and a new job. I will be working on a telemetry floor full
    time, but I just feel like I don't know anything even though it's only
    been a few months since I graduated and only less than 4 months since my
    last clinical day. Is this normal to feel this way or is it just me
    or am I really an idion? I feel like that I have sunk all of my learning
    into a book, but I did get to do a lot of skills that some of my fellow
    nursing peers missed out on. Maybe I am just nervous...what's up with that?:selfbonk:

    well, let me tell ya...when I was doing my precepting clinicals I lost over 30 lbs. After that I started studying again for my NCLEX-PN. I gained weight due to excess sitting and then the holidays and plus depression because I failed the the exam on the 1st try. Well, now I just recently passed the NCLEX for the 2nd time and I have gained weight. I am currently a licensed LPN and just started a job. Now I have been reading orientation manuals and sitting for orientation, and still gaining. When I get home I don't feel like doing anything. What can I do? Has anyone tried the South Beach Diet?:behindpc:

    Hey, I am from Southeast KY. Went to SECC (KCTCS) Comm. College. I am a LPN. I wonder if anyone is on here from my area?

    Hi. I am in KY. The starting rate for LPN's here is 13.25/hr. then top pay is over $15/hr. So what is the actual take home pay rate after taxes. Just trying to figure it out. There is fed, state, and FICA taxes plus union dues plus health insurance plus life insurance. Go figure!

    You're right. I have seen a lot of obese nurses, but I have seen most of them not quite so active and the way they eat at work is pathetic! I am overweight myself; however, I do try to eat nutritious meals at work and I even pack my own lunches and snacks. I think stair climbing is the best too.
