Sensoria17's Latest Activity

  1. Congratulations! Do me a favor and keep us updated on your job search. I would really like to move back to CA soon and am interested in seeing what kind of luck you have finding a job (hopefully fairly quickly!). Good luck!
  2. My name appeared first on the registry. I should add that I drove up to the capital to pay for my license in person, otherwise, it would have taken an additional 4-6 weeks to process and obtain a license number.
  3. I was originally licensed in CA in 2009 and the whole process from getting my ATT to actually receiving my license was three months. I'm currently out of state but have renewed my license just because I'm afraid of how long it will take to have it reinstated should I return.

    Balancing Work With Online Education

    I just started (and I'm not off to great start) so I'm interested in responses to this post as well. With my first foray into online classes, I will definitely agree that it is more work. I work M-F 3rd shift and this had made it difficult as well just because I don't sleep in a block of 8 hrs, it is more like 3.5 in the morning and then another 4-5 in the evening. At this point, I've opted for Straighterline for some of my prereqs because you can go at your own pace.

    ISU and Biology CLEP question

    I'm sure this has been answered somewhere. ISU accepts CLEP biology for credit, correct? They don't require a lab component? TIA

    Resume update

    Okay, so I've now been working in LTC for a 1.5 years now and I'm updating my resume. Do I still need to include nursing school clinical experience or just leave it off? TIA

    Does benig jealous make me a bad person?

    I think it is perfectly normal and human to feel jealous. Just don't let it get the best of you.

    Hard to find a job in L.A. as a new LVN

    I moved to North Carolina. I was only able to do so because I have a family member that moved there. I stayed with him while job hunting. Shockingly, I had a job within a week. I had to either move where I could find work or file BK.

    One night shift nurse and one day shift husband...

    I also work nights 5 days a week, M-F, pretty much the same hours as you. My husband works Sun-Thurs, 5a-1p. I usually sleep from 9-2. He comes home at about 2p so we eat lunch/dinner and spend some time together until about 5 or so and then I go back to bed until about 8:30. Even on Saturdays, we don't spend that much time together because I sleep most of the day and he's in bed by 7:30 or 8p. I really don't have much advice. I want a different schedule but I'm trying to hang in there because of the shift diff until a few bills get paid off.

    How much do LVNs make in the BAY AREA or SACRAMENTO AREA (CA)?

    Is the job market still that horrendous? I'm one that moved out of state to find work but would like to come back to CA within the next 2-3 years. It seems there are more job listings on Indeed.com. Or are these phony ads?

    What exactly is an Exelon patch supposed to do?

    Pretty much. I have only one resident on Exelon and nothing helps him. Seroquel helped for a little while but it is losing its effectiveness.
