I'm a new LPN. I graduated 2010. Even though it was my life long dream...I feel as if I'm not cut out for it. I've tried a couple jobs since getting my license, and it's all the same. The nurse to patient ratio is just overwhelming. Each time I had over 30 patients to just myself...and this week I found out I was gonna be over approx 80 pts with only a 1 med tech to help with meds. I refused assignment a day ahead ofcourse...telling my supervisor I didnt feel this is safe nursing...I mean, what if something were to happen? I couldn't except such responsiblity...Does this mean I'm a failure? or just not seasoned? Is there anywhere a LPN can work without these terrifying ratios? I want whats best for my patients...and that is all. I never even got a lunch break..because of the never ending med pass. I could really use some encouragement...thanks for listening.
