My mother, father and aunt are all LPNs, but not me noooo, I was not going to be a nurse:selfbonk: . I didn't want to clean poop and vomit :barf01: for the rest of my life (this was obviously my thought before I had children, because that fear went right out the window as soon as I gave birth:lol2: ). I was going to climb the corporate ladder:typing . No, my job didn't pay top notch:twocents: ,but there were great benefits and room to grow. After 5 years, 2 kids and a husband I was laid off . One day while crying my eyes out:bluecry1: my LPN, poop and vomit cleaning, gainfully employed aunt asked me a question,"Do you want a job with security, growth, good benefits and good pay?", of course I said yes, she told me to give nursing a try:nurse: . Now, because these are my reasons does that mean I'm going to neglect my patients NO WAY , I think it means just the opposite:kiss . Why would I jeopardize my job security, growth, benefits and PAY. I will do my job and do it well.
