  4. Hi my name is Stephanie and I am an LPN working in an assisted living facility. I aplied as an LPN and they asked me to come in for a group interview I went and then they called me a couple days later and the ALM offered me a medtech position since I didn't have any healthcare experience. I just started working there and I already don't like it and the hours that she has me working is not great and she refuseds to budge on the issue. The commute is crazy especially with no car and relying on public transportation. I feel that my LPN skills are not being utilized by working as a tech. Not sure what to do need advice ? I want to find something else before I leave the facility. Advice Needed?

  8. Hi, My name is Stephanie and I am a new LPN graduate who received my LPN license this past November with no job in site. Though I applied to numerous places through out the DC Metro Area. I applied as a Psych Tech at Dominion Hospital and the HR lady just called me to set up an interview for tomorrow afternoon. I'm usually not too good with interviews , advice strongly needed. I just hope she doesn't turn me away because I lack experience. I've gotten that story a lot for the past couple of months. Any advice is appreciated. Thank You, Stephanie
  9. In the same boat here in the DC metro area, I have had my license since Novemeber abd still can't find a job. It's ridiculous, how are we supposed to get experience if we can't work.

    Need Advice

    Hello, My name is Stephanie:eek: and I am from the MD area. I need advice badly , about a job situation. Ok here it goes I applied for this job that a family member of mine used to work at and I filled out all the paper work. The lady told me to come back and then she would talk to me about the position. Well anyways she never called me back I would call her and then finally I got her on the phone and she told me that I needed to talk to someone else and so I did. Now this person had me come up there and I filled out the paper work and everything, and then she drops the bombshell that the position is not a permanent position and that it is a PRN position and that I have to get a DC license and once I get that I can start working, she couldn't even tell me when the orientation was. I don't know what to do , should I take the position or not, I'm confused need help desperately? Oh yeah I'm a new grad with little health care experience. Thanks Stephanie

    Hey mackzzz, The only advice I can give you is not to be too nervous , know the company and just know your basic lab values, medications because sometimes they give you a little test to test your compentancy, Just be prepared. I'll let you know how my job is going. Thanks for all the support. Stephanie

    Got a New Job Scared To DEath

    Hi my name is Stephanie and I passed my boards in November ( thank God) . Anyways I finally got an interview and all they have to do is do a background check, but my problem is that I am really scared to start working because my school was horrible and we didn't get much clinical experience, and I'm so worried that I will make mistakes with people. I'm sorry to vent I'm just always been shy and a little anxious. Any advice is needed. Thanks Stephanie
