    Am I ready for Family Med?

    I love this job! I feel so excited to go to work. They are really good at making sure I am capable and don't "abandon" me. I am only on day 4 on the floor and have basic rooming down so they are letting me fly solo with that. Tomorrow I tackle our "inbox" procedure, for refills and other communications. RNs handle all triage, so I won't have to worry about that.

    Am I ready for Family Med?

    I was recently hired to work as an LPN in a (very large) family medicine clinic. They are a very huge health system with a long training/orientation period. I am worried I do not have the skills they think I have. I have a year of experience at a rehab facility, but it is kind of atypical. I started passing meds and really basic stuff. I continued to work with/under a RN. Nobody had time to teach me anything. The UM was stretched thin, so I was given a position as her assistant, doing care plans and weekly quality assurance stuff. They gave me a specific narrow set of skills and nothing more because that is what they needed. I liked my job, but I wasn't going anywhere. Basically, I am so nervous that they are going to expect too much too soon.

    Help with reading?

    Anyone have any tips for getting tons of reading done? I have a hard time because I love to read, and when not is school always haul a book around. My nursing texts are huge and too hard to schlep all over with me. Am I really supposed to read all 150 pages, plus do 3 case studies and 7 worksheets? Is there any E versions of textbooks, I would love to be able to download stuff to my phone and read when I get a free bit of time I'm not complaining, just wondering if anyone has any tips to help organize my reading/homework. I am a SAHM, with a 4 yr old and a 14mth old, so my time is not really my own. I know this is supposed to be a lot of work, I just need some ideas. Thanks! Heidi
