  1. Alot has changed in my life since I applied. I want to go to RN school, but I am just night sure that the evening/weekend program is right for me right now with all of the changes. I have until Nov 7th to turn in my final accept/decline letter.
  2. I 'm sure someone will turn it down. I am not exactly sure if I am gonna accept or not. Good luck to you!
  3. Anyone else get their acceptance email today?
  4. I got my acceptance letter!!
  5. Interview went well. Not sure if I will get in, but if not I will keep applying.
  6. I'm glad it went well. I haven't been to the Grenada campus before so I hope I can find the building I am suppose to go to. I am already very nervous and just want it to be over with.
  7. Where did you go to PN school at? I went to Holmes in Goodman. We didn't have to do an interview.
  8. I have mine Tues and I am really nervous. I hate essay questions. Good luck to you!

    Holmes ADN Program Grenada Campus

    I have received my email and have my interview for the night/ weekend program next week. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of narrative questions they ask? Also any examples of interview questions would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

    Background check for UMMC

    I have been offered a job through UMMC. I went over a week ago for background check and haven't heard anything. I have never even had a speeding ticket, but what I am worried about is that they might do a credit check. Anyone that works for or has worked for UMMC please tell me how long it took for your background check to come back and if they did a credit check.

    LPN forced to work as CNA

    I wish it was only 15 per CNA in our facility. Most of the time it is 25 per CNA. Thanks for all the comments. If there were other jobs available where I live I would have been gone a long time ago. I live in a small town and unless I want to drive 2 hrs I can forget anything but LTC. The hospitals around here don't hire LPNs and we have one clinic and those LPNs never leave.

    LPN forced to work as CNA

    I don't have a problem working as a CNA. I help my CNAs with anything they need. I change people, give baths, feed or whatever else needs to be done. I would never think I am above them. I admire them because their job is so much more demanding than mine. My point is that I just don't think it is fair to not let a nurse know before they come in for their scheduled shift that they will be working the entire shift as a CNA instead of a nurse.

    LPN forced to work as CNA

    My facility is having so much trouble keeping CNAs that they started asking LPNs to come in and work as a CNA. I don't have a problem with this as long as it is a voluntary thing. Now they have had a LPN come in on her regular shift only to find out that she had to work as a CNA. I don't want to work as a CNA. Don't get me wrong, I admire our CNAs and don't mind changing people and helping out, but I don't think I could handle doing it for a 12 hour shift. I have never been a CNA. Any opinions?

    Giving Morphine

    Thanks BrandonLPN because you understood my situation exactly. There were no grimaces, groans or guarding to indicate pain. All vitals were WNL. I had been on shift for 4 hours before she came on and had been closely monitoring these patients. She walked in the door and stopped at nurses desk and started demanding that the patients receive Morphine without even entering their rooms. These patients have not been receiving Morphine previously, but it is on the cart if needed. I have since talked to the DON and she agreed with me and said she would not have given it either in that situation.
