  1. I have an interview coming up, and my other post did not receive any responses. Im looking to find out what your day looks like as a research nurse. This job was advertised as nurse for clinical research coordinator (office setting), no other description. I would appreciate your help! I am a LPN who has not worked as a nurse yet (do have medical background though).
  2. ( I have posted this in the Research Nursing category with no replies thus far) Hello, I have an interview coming up in October for a LPN/RN for a Clinical Research Coordinator position. I graduated last Oct and am a LPN. I have not worked as a LPN yet but do have about 3.5 years experience in the healthcare field. Can anyone maybe give me an idea what this job may entail? I started looking at other threads but there are many responses to look through. I want to go in to the interview sounding like I know something about the position. I did ask if they were willing to hire a new nurse and she said if you have what it takes, and it is all mostly training anyways (a year worth). Maybe this is finally my opportunity...I don't want to get my hopes up, but sure want to give it my all! Any nurses out there that work in this capacity I would really appreciate your input.

  4. October will make a year since I graduated from my LPN program and I still am not working as a LPN it sucks. Anyone else having problems finding jobs? I had a previous Medical Assistant degree and have been working at the same healthcare company for over 3 years. I didnt know (I was mislead) that the clinic I work at would not hire me without experience. I was told by my boss that even if I took a job at one of the nursing homes as a LPN it would not count! I look online everyday. Seems like you have to completely settle on any old job (which Im not making minimum wage now...as a medical assistant but I am only pt) or that you have to know someone. I graduated top of my class etc which means nothing I guess. Im getting more and more depressed everyday and afraid Im gunna suck at nursing by the time I find a job or give up on it!

  6. I graduated in Oct 2013 from LPN school been licensed since Dec 2013. I havent worked as a LPN though yet.Im trying to find out if I decide its what I want to do, the best way to go for RN. Looking for others experiences (local and non local). Also anyone doing Excelsior? I briefly started looking it up...still dont know much about it and it kind of makes me nervous doing it online.
  7. For Erie one Boces? To be honest I remember there being alot of charts even in the English/critical thinking part. It is not what you would expect or can really study for. I didnt do that great in the math but since I did really well in the other part I got in. Just practice basic math. Also converting decimals to fractions and vice versa.

    Wound Care Clinic Interview

    I graduated 7 months ago with my LPN. I have my Medical Assistant degree also. Anyways I have not had much luck in my job search. I have been working for a healthcare system for 3 years. In January I got hired as A Medical Assistant in a clinic.I have been bidding on LPN positions throughout the system and finally the other day I got a phone call...missed it while at work. Its for an advanced wound center clinic in a local hospital. I was surprised to hear from them. They want me to come in Friday morning to interview. Im not sure how many are interviewing, or what my chances even are. I don't have much wound care experience besides the little I did in clinical, and its been a while. I really don't want to get my hopes up, but I really need this. Can someone describe what to expect/duties of wound care nurse. Is it something a new LPN can learn? Please any tips or places I should look things up to help me for the interview. Thanks!

    Any LPNs in Buffalo,NY area?

    Hi. So I have had my Med assistant degree since 2010 and I graduated in Oct 2013 from my LPN program, and am licensed. Anyone else out there having a hard time finding a good job? Im employed through Catholic Health but not as an LPN.

    Help job decisions!

    Yes that came up in interview they would have to check that out. To make things even more confusing and complicated. The same assisted living company (different location) posted an ad online hiring full time LPNs. I called up the number and I was told they would leave a note for the manager for me and I tried emailing also. Idk how that would work though.

    Help job decisions!

    Just got back a lil bit ago from the Medical Assistant interview. I have to go get my ppd done at the LPN position place in a little bit also (scared they will offer it to me and not know what to say). Unfortunately, it doesnt seem like the Med assistant job will have a decision until maybe mid next week. Oh ya The med Assistant job is like 10-15 mins further but no weekends!

    Help job decisions!

    Dont have much time have an interview to go to today in a bit. Ok so I got my med assistant degree in 2010 and I graduated and passed my LPN boards recently. I have been employed at a local hospital (health system) since May 2011 never as med assistant though (nursing assistant/unit clerk/ and now pharmacy). So I havent had much luck in my job search. My ultimate goal would be full time. So I had an interview yesterday for a pt (every other weekend) 2 days week(they didnt have posted what was available) LPN position at an assisted living/memory care facility. I had to go get them a backround check and im supossed to go back today for a ppd/physical (I would think they wouldnt do this for everyone?). So Im afraid they may offer me the job today but I have another interview today for a pt med assistant position in the same system I work in now. I would like to keep my senority and would hope something ft and or an lpn position would open up. I dont know what to do. Im per diem now and Im not sure if I would be able to keep my job now and take the LPN job if offered. I have to work a weekend and one other day a month at my job now. Not sure how many days week the pt med assistant job is yet (Im guessing 2 or 3). LPN pays $17 i believe idk any other details. Med Asst same pay as Im making now $15.09. Not sure what to do or if the LPN job is offered to me today.
  14. Did you take the nclex-rn? Mine is for PN. I know people posted something about pages of a study guide someone posted...not sure if this is it or not. Thanks
  15. Where can I find this study sheet? Thanks and congrats! Just scheduled mine today for Dec 16th!
