Method 3 Challenging LVN-Help

Posted

Hi there,

I am very excited to be applying to take the NCLEX . I have been a CNA for 12 years and am struggling with the employer part of the application. The skills portion was declined and I am hoping someone has an example of the verbiage they are looking for?

thanks!

I'm not quite sure what you're asking. I've seen an interview question like "Tell me about a time when you did something bad". Just be yourself. When you pass the NCLEX (yes, you've got this!) then you can answer those tricky interview questions knowing that 1) I will do no harm, 2) I can't give a dose of something without a specific Dr. order, 3) I will never leave a patient in a dangerous situation, like stepping  away from a patient that might fall, eat something harmful, or perhaps they might pull out their g-tube. 

Also, you'll have to get used to moving forward...  never to be a CNA again.

OP is referring to a method of licensure in CA that bypasses attending a program.
