    To all NPs, I am in need of your advice

    Hi ladies and gents, I am in need of your advice, I'm in Cali and looking to go to school for FNP, I'm already working in a clinic so I don't think at this time it would be a problem for me to setup clinicals there, anyway, I'm looking to do it online due to my work, I heard that Cal state dominguez is good for the first 2 years but for the role option the teacher doesn't really teach you, any advice on other online schools like univ of phoenix? Thank you all.

    Conditions in hospitals getting worse

    So with this nurse to patient ratio issues, where do we report this, who do we go to? I don't have that much exp as an RN but I can see that it is unsafe to have a ratio of 1:8 or 1:9 patients. I experience this and I don't agree with it.

    Good review material for NCLEX-PN?

    hello hello, well i have taken nclex-rn and still haven't pass, and i think i am going to consider taking lvn instead, i have wasted a lot of time already. what is a good review material to prepare for it, majority of the questions on lvn covers which topic? my friend told me before that it mostly consist of pharmacological questions? would the review course i took for nclex-rn be enough to pass nclex-pn? thanks!!!

    LPN Starting Salary

    I think it varies with states and hospitals, my aunt works in a small hospital and makes 18/hour that was before but now she makes 24-26/hour and she's been there for 15 years.

    Leaving meds at bedside in LTC

    I believe that legally you are not suppose to leave the meds out there, I may be wrong any corrections would be nice.

    Is this an acceptable practice???

    Just try to prioritize your patients.

    What *other* jobs are LVN's qualified for?

    Have you tried career builder? You just have to wait and you just have to compose your resume in the most appealing way. On the resume I had I indicated that I am was a RN Intern, had 6 months experience on telemetry, doing patient care, updating MAR Sheet, analyzing the EKG's of the patient and comparing it to what they had when they were admitted, I admit patients, do their care plans, and so on and so forth. I keep getting e-mails, and getting calls, but I reminded them of what is my current conditions are, but yeah, they will call, and contact you.

    How could i not know what i want?

    How about planning of starting your own business while you have some other ways of acquiring income to support your new business?! Just my 2 cents

    how long does one stay

    I was talking to one of my step brothers, he would want to transfer where his other siblings live, but where the economy is going, he told me that he would rather stay where he is working right now, because he retains seniority, unlike if he transfer he would be the first one to be laid off since he will be new to that hospital. Regardless of his experience.

    Does LPN need malpractice insurance?

    I am not an LVN nor an RN yet here in the US, but I am using a company that can represent me in court, not just by means of license but on everyday life events, of course that is as long as I didn't do anything wrong. A lot of people that are innocent but needs a lawyer and can't provide one do plea guilty because they can't afford one, you might say that there are free lawyers, but that's if you qualify, and since you are a LVN you don't qualify for a free lawyer because of your income. If you need more info I can send it to you, you can contact me via gandanito@gmail.com.

    failed nclex twice..losing all my confidence

    I actually heard from a guy back at my old work that Arnold the Gov gave a free review, ahhhhh, and I missed that as well, they've conducted 2007. You passed right, do you mind helping me out on what you did with Saunder's? It's actually crazy, my aunt told me to just keep answering questions, and that I did, I answer 75 questions a day then read the rationale, then I moved to 100 questions a day, and on my final 2 weeks I answer 200+ questions a day and then read their rationales, and it took me 6-8 hours a day for my last 2 weeks before the exam date.
