    How To Get Trache and Vent Experience

    I literally just started pediatric private duty nursing and I was just put on a 12hr trach/vent case ive only been a nurse since dec so I left the LTC facility I was working with because I wasnt happy but I sat down talked with the DON of the agency I work for and told her I want experience I wanna learn about trachs and vents I want to learn as much as I can and literally this is my 2nd week and im already on a trach/vent case so my point is if I were u id request more complex cases

    LPN vs PCT?

    Umm well are u a LPN or a CNA? because its a big difference ive never heard of a Lpn/cna job I'm confused if u are a LPN why wouldn't u work as a nurse to gain experience as a nurse?

    New grad lvn. I think I am in the wrong field.

    I'm VERY new also but I'm also a very low stress type of person...I refuse to stress about things I have no control over & not knowing alllll of the ridiculous paperwork that goes along with my job is nothing I can help...I do the best I can if I miss something they know where to find me I feel like if they want me to know EVERY single form to fill out for a fall for example...they need to put a lil packet together and put it in a certain spot & when a fall occurs boom! There it is but it's not like that it's alll very trial & error which is fine that's how ppl learn like I've only had to admit 1 resident and I've worked for about a month...if I had to do another new admit I wouldn't remember all of the steps I wouldn't remember half they know I'm new but I refuse to stress myself about it I know ill get it down I recently switched from 7-3 to 11p-7a it's super laid back u should maybe look into trying to get that shift

    I am a nurse but not happy with so much stress

    I understand & I've worked the day shift & MY solution was to switch to the 11p-7a shift it cuts down havin to deal with alot of that mess cause everyone is sleep...just relax &DONT take ur job home with u
