    Lvn to ADN Bridge online?

    Yes this is true. You take the courses with them then you test out of that course at Pearson view. You can call and find out about the program.

  4. I did the same thing. Took a pay cut, but I am much happier. I now have M-F 9-5, 5 weeks vacation, and 12 holidays, pretty much my own office. I am now a Case Manager and I love it!

    Why is unionization a subject of taboo??

    You are sooooooo right! Sounds so much like my job and floor. Over worked and underpaid. The only thing is I get paid for the extra time I stay, probably because I am only part time. I could not imagine this pace full time, you would burn out. I agree 100% with you we should have a union!

    Blood transfusions??? just say no...

    I would like to become a nurse, but I don't believe in blood transfusions, getting them or giving them. That said I would never tell anyone not to get one, or say anything against the doctors order, I believe it is a personnal choice but I don't want to have to give them. I'm in nursing school now. Do you or anyone you know have this issue and if so how do they deal with it and what areas or floors can they work on? I know oncology and ortho are poor choices. I was hoping for a job where It wouldn't come up often and if it did I could get the supervisor or another nurse to do that. while I did all other care. There are so many areas of nursing a person can pursue. Do not let not wanting to give blood stop you from being a nurse, just find a field that does not give blood transfusions. If need be you can ask another nurse to give it for you and you monitor the patient.
  7. You are quite welcome, and I wish you all the best! I just got hired so any questions you would like to ask feel free!

    How long after you graduated Veeb before you could apply for licensing? Did it take them a long time to send in the information?

    You will get a back pack with one in it that you will carry to clinicals everyday. It has a watch, penlight, and some other things

    It's not ready because the authors did an updated version of the book, if you know someone with the old one you could borrow it and at least start.

    When you go to school you will be told what you qualify for, and if any how much you have to pay. In your letter you will be told when the 1st semester tuition is due.

    I will be graduating on Friday Aug 13, 2010. It was tough but God saw me through! Yes I was in the bridge program. You are not to old and you will make it. Take advantage of the afterschool tutoring when you can, but especially before a test, and especially if you find yourself having trouble in a class. I did not have a study group I actually did it by myself at home. You will be fine, try different ways to study until you see what works for you. It will seem to be overwhelming but do not give up, you can make it!
