    Assisted Living vs Nursing Home

    Hello, Can anyone tell me what it is like working assisted living vs skilled nursing facility as an LVN? I have been at a SNF for 7 months and am sick of it. The expectations are very unrealistic and I am always stressed out and feel depressed b...

    What does a LVN Case Manager do?

    Hello, I am curious about home health scheduling. Are you required to be on call all the time? Or can you set your schedule in advance for the week? I am really interested in entering HH but don't want to always be on call. I heard the schedulin...

    I Really Do Not Want the COVID Vaccine 😞

    I feel exactly the same way as you about taking this vaccine. I realllllly don't want to take it either. I work at a nursing home that is currently going through an outbreak and I have this nagging feeling that my employer will make it mandatory in o...
  8. I have been a LVN going on 5 months at a SNF. I am like an emotional roller coaster since I started. I have never experienced so much anxiety and uncertainty and at times depression about a job before. I can't stop questioning what I got myself into ...

    Home Health LVN vs RN

    I am curious about Home Health. I am a new LVN with 3.5 months experience. How much experience is recommended before entering HH? What does a HH LVN do vs. a HH RN? Is home health nursing less stressful than working in a skilled nursing facility?

    I quit my first nursing job after 2 weeks

    You have not ruined your reputation. You did the right thing by getting out. It sounded like a toxic and dangerous environment. I would have quit too. You can leave that job off of your resume if you want. I left the one I quit off of my resume and h...
  11. Hello, I have been a LVN for 3 months working in a SNF. I feel called to working with people with developmental disabilities but I am having a hard time finding out where to apply or where to even look for places that offer a position in this. Any ad...

    New grad......did I make a mistake?

    I know how you feel. I am pretty much in the same boat as you. I am a new nurse working at a SNF and didn't get much training either. I am having bad anxiety lately about it. I have already quit one job at a SNF after two weeks and now I am working a...

    Home health vs facility

    I feel that way a lot. I am a new nurse and I am curious about home health. I would way rather have 1-6 patients vs 25 patients. I heard it is good to get experience before going into home health but I wonder how true that really is....?
  16. I am 2 months in as a new LVN at a SNF and already want to either go part time or quit. I am afraid if I don't go down to 3 days a week I will have a mental breakdown or up and quit (which I can't even afford to quit). I already dread going in to wor...
