    Help on being a better floor nurse

    Thank you Davey. I'm going to ask my manager that I need help learning some things when I start back up.
  2. I'm going back to LTC, and I feel like I struggled with a lot of basic nursing things that I should know, being a nurse for three years now. I know how to pass meds, take vitals etc...but I still struggle with things such as lab values, knowing when ...

    Guilt About A Med Error

    Katie, you made a tiny medication error. Your error did not cause him to pass away. Unless he was deathly allergic to them, there's no way your error could have caused it. Both meds you gave take a few weeks to start "working" in the body, as they ar...

    No Time for Appointments

    Hi, I'm making this thread because I've been having so many mental health issues lately. I work full time in a doctor's office, which I love. But right now I've been needing 1-2 days off a week just for therapy appointments, assessments, and so...

  10. I don't have anything to add, but most HR departments will have your pay stub information, even if they need to email it to you or something. I wish you luck in this hard situation.

    LPN failed out of RN program 2x, advice?

    Thank you so much, Nurse Beth. I'm gonna take another shot after awhile, when I feel ready. 😊 It's hard to accept where you are in life, but I guess that's simply a life lesson!

    Starting A Career In My 50's: CNA or LPN?

    That sounds like a great route! I was a CNA for 7 months in LPN school and it helped me SO much, learning to take care of people and talk to them. Good luck!! You'll do great!

    Starting A Career In My 50's: CNA or LPN?

    definitely go for LPN, especially if it's free. You'll get to where you want to be sooner. LPN pay rates are going up and are significantly higher than CNA, and it's a very fulfilling job. Also many types of jobs you can get, compared to CNA. L...

    Thank you for your response! I can imagine a lot of these techniques take time to grow. I haven't started yet, sadly. I should be in the next week or two!
