I was hired at my first LVN job in Dec.

I was let go by February (basically I wouldn't play games with my license and stood up for myself) the facility was really in bad shape--but looked good from the outside.

I was hired on call in April at a new better run facility.

I learned from my mistakes. I worked my arse off! I also completed my RN prereqs while working. I made myself available and tried hard to be a good nurse.

Yesterday, I was hired full time, with benefits and a raise! I'm so happy! So thankful to God for making this possible.

There is hope for LVNs! Yeah!!!!!!!!

Actually, people at work keep on telling me this. I'm so happy. I just pray I can keep doing a good job there, and I hope to learn a lot about how to be an excellent nurse, also. I have to say, I love my job! (-: God is so good!!
