    LPN to RN woes

    I have a little dilemma. I'm finding it really hard to find the drive to go back to school for my RN. I've only been an LPN for about a month, and I know I want to get to be an RN as fast as possible, but I have close to no motivation to do so :( I think part of it is that I failed my TEAS test, retaking it again. I don't know... I attended my mandatory meeting last night at the school I'll be applying to. I still plan on taking the TEAS test again (And pass!) and the LPN challenge exam to gain entrance into the program. So, right now I'm just going through the motions. Has anyone else ever felt this way? :/

    While we were arguing; we disappeared

    I honestly can't tell if anyone's anything at my first nursing job. I mistook a CNA for a nurse, a nurse for a CNA, an occupational therapist assistant as a nurse, and everything in between. Just have to ask and/or look at their name badge. Makes me wonder what I look like to everyone, as a new LPN.

    Gear for new (overnight) LTC nurse?

    Benefit scrubs are amazing! I get so many compliments on them and they're so soft. I plan on getting a pulse ox and a manual BP cuff just in case. I also love my bag I have. Thank you!

    Failed By One point

    Agreed with coliotterr3. Sometimes nothing can be done. All you can do is look forward and try again! Never give up. Like they always say, just because you hit a bump in the road doesn't mean it's completely over. Especially if you want it enough!
  5. So I'm trying to get into an LPN Advanced Placement program to skip a semester for my RN. This is a test I have to take, and pass with a 75%. I just graduated from LPN school August 2nd, and I just passed my NCLEX a few weeks ago. Has anyone else taken this? Does anyone know what it entails? Or how to study for it? Thank you.

    Failed Nclex after 2 years now what?

    It sounds like you should keep at what you're already doing. Do you know what you struggle with specifically?

    What Broke our Healthcare System?

    The price of staying healthy in America continues to rise. I wish there was something us normal people/nurses could do about it. But the truth is, we're all just pawns in this healthcare system, whether you're taking care of people or not. Medications processed through the pharmacy and bubble packed (I used to be the order entry tech and med packer), delivered through the delivery service, all for meds people don't need, yet the nurse gives out every day. It's truly sad. I only wish I knew more about the subject.

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    I still fail to see why the patient cannot be held accountable for their negative actions.

    Introducing #SilentNoMore

    Fantastic article, a very horrific read in the beginning as well. As a CNA, I experienced this a bit, with the patients scratching, pinching, punching and no one bats an eye. The seasoned CNAs saw it as normal. I never thought it was okay. As a new nurse, I hope I can put an end to workplace violence, or at the very least get CNAs/nurses to stand up for themselves. It's simply not right.

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    A stance I haven't really seen in this topic; why is it okay for the patient to have said what they said to the nurse? Surely there wouldn't have been an issue if the nurse said something along the lines of "Wow, my new nurse is amazing!", chances are the facility wouldn't have minded if that was the case. It would be getting good publicity out of the facility, even! But because the patient said something rude and negative, and the nurse said something negative/joking about it, he got in trouble. But I beg the question, why does the patient never face disciplinary action? Why does everything fall onto Josh? And this is including if the patient was "with it" or not.

    Nurse Instructor/ Things That They Say

    This is so hilarious and relaxing. Sooo true too. I love it! My clinical instructor sent me to remediation in my first semester, I think it helped lmao. Definitely guilty of keeping the bed in the highest position, both as a nursing student and as a CNA.

    I made a mistake and I am terrified to go back to work

    Thank you so much! Much appreciate. I'm super excited. It's LTC overnights!

    Stressed LPN

    I know this response was meant in a positive way, but the fact is that she shouldn't HAVE to communicate with them over this. They should be out there at least checking how things are going on. I'm so tired of the mentality that these people can't lift a finger to help other floor nurses. It's almost as bad as managers of fast food places, where they do nothing but watch the employees work and twiddle their thumbs. It's sickening!

    Job search sites

    What I usually did was apply through Indeed, or go to the website through Indeed and apply.
