    Did I do the right thing?

    Anytime you see anything you think is odd, you have to bring it up. You brought it to the charge's attention, where she/he goes with it from there is up to them. Obviously there was a problem which needed to be addressed. What is needed is to find out how it could have happened --not to place blame on anyone, but to make sure that it doesn't happen again in the future.

    Medical assistants and LPNs

    Not sure but I think most nurses could test out fairly well for an ASS degree!!!!

    Medical assistants and LPNs

    I personally believe no aide should have the responsibility of doing something another person has to be licensed to do. It surely is a labor cost issue and bothers me when I see an aide doing things like this.(Not the aide personally, but the system behind it). Why bother having any licensure of nurse if you are able to hire someone off the street to do it? It really makes no sense for Drs to be able to hire like this.

    Med-Surg Wasn't So Bad!

    I believe any new grad should start out on a med/surg unit. When they say you can do that, you can do anything, it's true! You never know what's going to walk in the door on one of these units and it really does give you a good base for the rest of your career.

    is being an lpn so bad???

    You go girl! I get SO tired of hearing "don't you want to be an RN?". You know, if I truly wanted to be an RN that bad, I would be an RN. I really enjoy being an LPN, I am damn good at what I do and I like it. What more could you ask? I do know there are a heck of a lot of RNs out there that are wistfully thinking they should be LPNs, a great number of them have expressed this to me. I don't know where the general idea comes from that an LPN is a lesser person. I suspect it comes from some RNs who need to build themselves up. I don't see it as a competition, I do my job, they do theirs, we work together. I help them when I can, they help me when they can and we all get along. This is the ideal. The bottom line--- do what you want. Don't let anyone tell you what you should be doing. Good Luck!!!

    LPN Petition to Take RN Boards

    I think it's a great idea, but some course work would be required, and I stress "some" not a ton. I find after all my years as an LPN I am a resource for the RNs, and I think my knowledge and experience should count towards something. I think this is an excellent begninning of an idea that is worthwhile of a look-see to help solve the RN shortage.

    PDA's & LPN/LVN???

    I have a Palm TX and I use it daily at work. It is handy to look up questions on meds and generic names. There's many other features you can get, I have a dictionary that comes in very handy when I run across something I need to look up.

    Do you say you're a nurse...

    Saying you are a nurse if you are an LPN is definitely not misleading. I say I am an LPN with pride, I've worked hard at it for many years, if I wanted to be an RN, I would certainly be an RN, but being an LPN does not make me less of a "Nurse", it's apples and oranges really.

    LPN to RN Excelsior College

    I was wondering if anyone here can help me. I purchased the whole cirriculum for Excelsior's associates in nursing degree program from the College Network and I am discovering that I just don't have the time to devote to it, I have one kid in college now and one will be there next year and I'll have to work a lot to help get them through--and I need to sell this whole package. Does anyone have any ideas as to where to go to sell it? I've thought of Ebay but would like at least half or so of what I paid and I don't know how that would go over there. Thanks.
