    A LVN taking a non-lvn job

    hey guys. good news! got hired today after the interview. i feel sorta stupid though because he has asked me if $10 per hour is okay in spite the fact that i have license and everything and just nodded and said yeah taht's fine. i shouldve at least ask for a dollar more or something =/ what do you guys think?

    A LVN taking a non-lvn job

    thank you guys. really appreciate it. oh yeah for the agency though...they're really bs. i keep asking them for another assignment but this is what i think. the first time they hired me they said that they're placing me to a assisted living facility. but that didn't go through and the recruiter told me he has no idea what happened to the contract so for weeks i was just waiting but i realized that this agency just recruits and recruits but doesn't even have enough jobs for everyone.

    A LVN taking a non-lvn job

    hello. i've posted a thread before blabbing about being jobless. and i know a lot of people are having the same problem. Being LVN is just not doing it. especially that I'm a new grad and I don't have a degree either. But I also read and heard RNs are also having troubles also landing a job. So anyways, after 3+ months of job hunting ...I still don't have a decent one. I worked for an agency but so far I only worked 2 days as a school nurse since may...and now since school is over..I basically don't have work. I've been applying everywhere...online..walk-ins. NOTHING. but I'm not suprised at all... on the other hand, i have interview this thursday but not as a lvn...as direct support professional to assist developmentally disabled adults during the facility's day program from 7:30-3:30 MONDAY TO FRIDAY for $10 per hour. (they are really short in staff so i'm pretty sure i'm going to get it and my friend works there also) I thought to myself that since I'm jobless I would just take this opportunity ..though it's only somewhat nursing-related. I don't have any other experience though besides my clinical rotations from school and agency..but it doesn't really count because cmon... 2 days. and a school nurse? eh. with this job, i will actually be in contact and interaction with the clients..it's non-medical..but I can see that this can be a good background since I don't have any other "health-related" experience. So I was wondering...what is your take on this? Is this a good move for me? I will keep applying for sure. I'm also planning to apply for volunteer at a local hospitals..but it's interesting though because even the volunteer programs are packed. But I need to keep checking... Hope I hear from you guys. Thanks

    @swayman: wow that's great! you must have a lot of experiences on your resume haha @caliotter: i agree. work is work. so i guess as long as it's within the medical experience it should be considered right?

    LVNs=no job?

    @TheCommuter: yes i am from california. and yes, i do agree with you. we're overly saturated with new LVN grads...but no jobs here for us. it really sucks...i really need to get my RN asap. do you think that gaining experience as a home health aide is a good experience to put down? @caliotter3: the agency im currently working for right now is $18 per hour. but like i said it's unstable. sometimes it's one hour..the next maybe it's 4 hours who knows. but the one i got interview today is NOT A LVN JOB. HOME HEALTH AIDE/CAREGIVER... thanks guys.

    LVNs=no job?

    i don't know what to do anymore. so i graduated honors in july 2009 as LVN. passed my hesi and nclex with flying colors. took a IV and Blood withdrawal class to expand my skills and knowledge. i would like to think i have a great resume. here i am with no decent job at all. i started at an agency recently but it's so unstable...so far i had only worked one day. waiting for my schedule probably next week. and it's only $18 per hour. but i'll just never know when i'll work. then i just had an interview today as a home health aide that i applied long time ago and she really likes me...it's $14 per hour and .50cents every mile because i have to drive to the client's house. i mean i don't have any other medical experience besides what i had from my school's clinical rotations. i just don't feel sane anymore...i mean i applied everywhere and i mean i also did walk-ins. it's terrible...if i take the job with such a low rate, am i being crazy? i'm so desperate for a job and experience... i feel like i've worked so hard in school...especially passing nclex so that i can get a head start. and i passed it the first time...took IV class and bloodwithdrawal to better up the chances of getting hired...but no..things don't happen the way you want them to.. what do you think guys? just take whatever i can get and gain experience? help.
