    I just got suspended

    Good luck and no your not the only one who has signed for meds that were either d/c or not given I have seen a lot of nurses give meds and then sit down and go down the line signing the mar and I have even seen them sign prior to giving mars jut cutting corners especially in ltc.....

    Does being a CNA equal 1 year experiance for lpn?

    When you two graduate keep in touch and 3 months after she begins her nursing career ask her how she feels about it now...I promise the attitude will do a 180...

    insulin but no syringe

    This question was presented to me and I would like to get some feedback on it, If you have someone who has a low bs and needs to receive insulin but you do not have a needle would it be possible to put it under the tongue for some absorption or what would be an option....thanks:rolleyes:

    From vet tech to lpn

    I just left the animal world 2 years ago, I went to lpn school and I have been working in ltc for a year I miss the animals and I still try to do a little bit of that but the pay is a lot better in the human world you can actually do more medically for the animals than you can people the major difference is that people bite harder...LOL
