plan of action

  1. Hi, anyone have experiece transitioning from LPN to BSN? Specifically from an LPN working on a Med/Surg unit to BSN in L&D. L&D is why I returned to school and I am trying to make myself into a very valuable commodity when I graduate. I hope that a nurse manager will see my LPN Med/Surg experience as a benefit. I am also doing my best to pick up Spanish along the way. I really don't like M/S, but plan to deal with it as long as possible.

    I would think they would see that as an excellent asset, and may even hire you straight into L&D even if they normally don't take new grads. The other thing you could do is try to get your NRP before grad.

    agree with fergus. Your experience can't do but HELP you on your way to this goal. Good luck.

    I am not sure, but think that NRP means neo-natal resuscitation something? Do facilities usually train you for that? Where can I find it on my own? Thanks for the advice all.

    NRP IS neonatal resuscitation program and YES usually facilities have an NRP instructor on hand to do this training and testing. Ask the OB dept. manager about who this person may be and how to contact him/her. Good luck.
