Hospice just seems to be "my niche" ; I was a total disaster in a hospital unit, even a skilled care nursing home. (At the nursing home had this "terrible" habit of spending a moment talking to the residents instead of doing my charting. Finally got not-so-gently-pushed-out-the-door.)
I am now in the LPN-to-RN transition program at the local community college. At the "introduce yourself" on orientation day all the fresh young visionaries, who were NOT LPN's already, were gushing about how happy they were to have finally been accepted / I've always wanted to be a nurse type of comment.
When it was my turn I said, "I'm already an LPN, and I LOVE the job I have. But the company I work for only hires LPNs for night shifts. Well, I'm 63 years old---so around 4:30 am my body says, 'Why don't you get a day job'. Becoming an RN will just open new doors for me."
PS:Guessing from your online name you aren't just out of high school, true? Personally I'm a retired government fisheries biologist with a B.Sc. in my back pocket and 25,000 miles of coastal and offshore sailing during my "retirement". Only got into nursing in 1999.
