    Weekend Only Nurse?

    Wow, thanks for the speedy and informative answers. I've got another question. She mentioned she only had an associates or maybe she said she only went to college for two years, something like that.... so does that mean she's an LPN right? But I think she called herself an RN... I thought RN needed a Bachelors which takes four years?

    Weekend Only Nurse?

    Hello, I'm 19 and considering nursing as a career. Someone said you can make a living just doing all weekend shifts, day and night I'm guess is what she meant? Is this possible? Can you really make a living doing that? Is that considered full or part time?

    Getting a job out of state?

    Thanks Emille, it does help. but I'm still a bit confused reading these websites... Could you tell me what goes onto this? By applying, does that mean I need to take tests and such? Or is it just proving I'm educated, etc? If it's typical to have to take a test, will it be difficult as someone in my situation?

    Getting a job out of state?

    Hello, I am planning to become an LPN in Mississippi- however I am wondering if I wanted to work out of state, would I need to take a test to get a state license to do that or what? My story is this, I live in MS but I've met a special someone who lives over 2000 miles away. Since it's expensive to get an education out of state, I kind of think it might be good to get my education here but then move up there to work since by the time I'll be finished, he'll still be in college. That way we can date and I can work. Is this a silly, unrealistic idea or could this work? If so, what would I do to make that work so I can practice out of state? God bless! I appreciate any help and advise!
  6. I'm a junior in high school, homeschooled but not as sheltered as many homeschoolers my age are. I also have treacher collins syndrome, due to it, I've had a rough history in the hospital and surgeries. I have PTSD from it. but it's so confusing since my favorite shows are the er/hospital dramas and i know, they are only tv shows! haha. but i don't have ptsd to the point i can't take shots or anything like that. but the smell of surgery, [more spefically anthesia?], or the thought of tubes going up my nose terrifies me. i have an anxiety problem as well. and all my childhood i thought i'd never want to do anything career wise near a hospital yet i'm so attracted to nursing, especially ER and missionary work. i really want to devote my life to helping others. i don't care about money, as long as i can eat and have a roof over my head i'll be happy. i don't think that ptsd or treacher collins can ever keep me from doing anything i truly want to do. i don't want it to have power over me like that. but it's just my PTSD, and my sensitive personality is what bothers me when i think about nursing. ER looks to me that it can be intense and i hear about how you have to have thick skin. I don't think I'm thick skinned, just generally emotionally detached. But that's something you can, develop and work on right? i like how it's got alot of routine to it but it's fast paced. [at least that's my impression of it, correct me if i'm wrong!] And I think you can really help others when you're a nurse, especially in missionary work. So would ya'll have any advise to give me about my concerns?
