    acceptance to Wright LPN 2010

    Hi, I am a current student at one of the state lpn programs. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if you are talking about the wright tech lpn program in connecticut it is being suspended because the governor states that it will help with the states budget. Apparently this class will be the last class because of the state budget. We are all praying that that she might change her mind because current student's, faculty members, some senators, and other people are all protesting it. If this decision goes through then unfortunately only the private institutions such as lincoln tech, porter and chester, and stone academy will still be running. Nina, SPN

    No She/he Did Not!!!

    no she did not.. did 2 no calls no shows for clinical during a single rotation (not back to back i should add)(received a warning for each of them) and asked the instructor during post conference how many times she can do this before she gets kicked out of the program...... no he did not.. just lied and said he gave the patient a bed bath and the patient's bath pan was there dry with paper towel stucked to the bottom of the inside. should i add that the patient was a+o x 3 and said "no you did not".
  9. tell me about it. amen... :redbeathenina, spn:heartbeat

    What color are your school uniforms?

    I have to wear Olive Green Scrubs for clinicals. I prefered the color the last class had which was navy blue tops, and white bottoms. Nina, SPN

    The most comfortable Nursing Shoes

    I am a current nursing and i am also i cna I have to say that i love my nurses mates shoes. They are very comfortable. Good luck in finding your dream shoes. lol Nina, SPN
  15. i have to say i totally agree here. i am due to graduate in january and i have been in several clinical area's and witnessed rn's and lpn's who went through schools with high averages and took the nclex several times. the same thing vice versa there are nurses out there that barely scraped by and and passed their nclex on the first try, my sister who i live with being one of them. how well someone did in school is not always a good indicator of what kind of nurse he or she will turn out to be. not because you can do practical things according to your facilities or school policy it does not make you a good nurse or a good nurse to be. i have seen nurses with excellent clinical skills that are severly deficient when it comes to advocating, ensuring patient privacy, and the list goes on and on. or what about the nurses that ends up in front of the bon for unsafe practice, diverting meds etc.. can we determine how they performed in nursing school? although i do agree that at some stage one should know certain things i would be happy that she is asking while she is still in school on how to do intake and output rather than waiting until she is out in the field. as long as she is learning what she is lacking and she is not endangering the patients safety then her chances are just as good as any other nursing student. we are all learners and will continue to be lifelong learners if we choose to do so. just my 2:twocents:. :redbeathenina, spn:heartbeat :ancong!: to all making it so far in whatever career path they choose. 31 more days to go till graduation. almighty above i pray that you continue to guide me.
