    foreign language nurses

    it reall bothers me when two or more nurses start talking their language around the nurses station. I don't know why but I feel ignored when they do that. does not even matter that there is an english only policy because the nurse supervisor speaks the same language.I remember when I was a CNA I was the only english speaking and (american) staff member in the whole building. Ethnic groups would give their groups special consideration when they asked for help but I was left to rot when I asked! How would u have handled these situations? I feel really bad! Sincerly needs help on this topic

    Medicaid. Is it being abused?

    Then I dont understand how u can afford name brand clothes and cant afford to pay for food.-Sounds kind of silly of u to keep up with the Jones but cant afford food,clothing,child care and medical assistance for yuor children.:angryfire I a poor too but I do know my limits and if i had tried to keep up with the Jones I would not be a nurse right now. Its one of the sacrifices I had to make. and get this--I am a nurse(before i was a Cna) and I still can't afford cable,even while working (full time) with 1 child and living with my parents!:angryfire ---To Kiyasmom:stone

BUT SINCE SHE WAS NOT A NURSE BUT PART OF THE ADMINISTRATION MAYBE SHE MEANT CULTURES-EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF LPNS IN MY STATE TAKING A CULTURE FROM THE VAGINA. tHEY DID NOT TEACH US HOW TO TAKE A CULTURE FROM THAT PART OF THE BODY. IT WAS THE EYES AND THROAT.

    HI. Does anyone know about any LPN to RN articulation programs in northern N.J.? also, the lpn school i graduated from was not accredited.{they were in the process of getting accredited}. they did not tell me that when i signed up. :angryfire Will that affect my chances of getting into those type of programs?
