How? Did you not have placements in rest homes or on a rehab ward or an acute medical ward?

I read on another thread of a student's clinical experience that apparently consisted of more "observation" than hands on nursing care.

It would be a wonderful world when people could respond to questions asked without the snarkiness or even better yet, ignore the question altogether if your response would be less than polite.

It would also be a wonderful world when people understand that a thread has a life of its own, and tell me the secret of detecting TONE while reading an Internet post. :)

Until then, the world keeps turning... :whistling:

I've been an LPN since 2007, started out in ALF/Long term care, worked my way into Therapeutic Apheresis from 2009-02/2013, now I'm in Specialty Pharmacy counseling oncology pts on their oral chemotherapy medications, and answering questions about side effects/tx of side effects. I'm actually pretty happy working a desk job, Mon-Fri, no weekends/holidays and great benefits!

Please list your experience or knowledge of specific nursing specialties that have minimum patient contact (code brown, c-dif, etc), and what specialty provides the best hours? For instance working in a hospital versus a clinic? Thanks.

Never let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do. Find something you are passionate about and then fight for it.

Perseverance is not one long race but many short races, one after the other.

Just be absolutely certain of what you want. And if it takes a few months or a year of deviation to get to where you want,so be it. But never let another tell you that you cannot do it.

Those who say it is impossible should get out of the way of those doing it.

What are you, some kind of optimist?

After almost 8 years in. Nursing I have a job with zero pt contact, no holidays and no weekends ( unless I want them), and I work from home.

But I will tell you this much. I would have never gotten this job without my years in the hospital hauling poop and go gowning up in the ICU combatting GI bleeds and C-diff.

I enjoyed my patient care, I really did. And when I landed this job, I can't believe how I rely on my bedside knowledge. I would fail miserably at what I do without it.

So, ask yourself why you want to be a nurse. And I respect that if you don't want to stay in bedside forever. But even though there are other things besides direct patient care, you mostly need to do it before you get beyond it.

Darn it too late to edit my post. Got the user name wrong - it was icysagenurse. Remember the infamous thread about having basically a phobia of poop. Still makes me laugh.

OP if poop and people freak you out this is NOT the career for you.

I laughed too when I saw the shock of "the rapist"..lol it is therapist!!!! I want to do ER as well but trust me you will have to wipe bottoms in the ER. I volunteered in a local ER this summer as a student nurse and gave a patient a bedpan. The lady put her call light on when she was done but the nurse could not get to her quick enough so I cleaned her up even though as a volunteer it was not in my description. Good luck to you.
