    Lpn becoming obsolete

    Your going to keep seeing LPN's being pushed to the nursing homes from Acute care settings. Even now I currently working in a LTC facility and 8 years ago when I started LPN's were everywhere on the floor, even holding charge positions. Now the way the reimbursement is going the charge positions are now being filled with RN's to get the RN staffing up for the 5 star ratings. My suggestion go straight for your RN! Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Help nurses license to expire

    I think that I will have to end up doing the long drive in the morning. I called them several times and they keep saying that the site is jammed up and to keep trying. So frustrating!

    Help nurses license to expire

    having trouble renewing nursing license for about the past 2 weeks I have tried the online method and it keeps giving me an error that they cannot submit my payment due to an input error. Have attempted using different peoples cards and the same thing.

    Valentines Activities

    Thanks those are some good ideas that I am going to look into. It has taken many year to get into the position that I have and I miss the direct care with the residents. I bothers me that they do the same activities over and over again so these ideas will help to create some new activities thanks alot

    So, Im a brand new Nurse, Help!

    Nursing is not something that you can expect to know what you are doing within 2 days or 2 weeks. When i fist started in long term care after i finished school i was oriented to the position for 6 weeks. And in that 6 weeks i learned about the position that i was assuming and alot about assessments, paper work and all the other things that go along with it. I can tell you that after 4 years there are things that i still dont know and things that i am still learning. Dont expect to know everything in a few days or in a few weeks. Nursing is one of those beautiful careers in which everyday is a learning expreience. Good luck and enjoy your career.
