    Being an LPN

    And some of us have no RN in charge but an RPN or LPN :).

    They don't do assessments? Supervised by RNs? All depends on location.

    Is your DON allowed to pass meds?

    135 Residents. Potential for more when full. It makes it a lot easier for me to be approached by my residents and for me to relate to my nursing staff.

    I'm a DON. I work on the floor 3 days a week and pass meds. I do agree with the above poster though - we work a lot of hours that are not paid OT.

    New Graduates-How long to find first job

    It is realistic. Several of my classments did the RN bridge after due to no full time work. It seems to be an easy way for companies to get a nurse.

    RPN-RN bridging 2014

    True, but organization is key. Mac isn't as structured for their assignments as the others at times.

    True enough. Just trying to help...

    Lifting huge laundry bags...

    Depends on where you are. Is pericare beneath you because you have an education?

    Lifting huge laundry bags...

    Again, we say it isn't beneath but make excuses why it is. So what if we have a diploma? The job description always says additional duties as needed by management. I used to help serve in a dining room because we didn't have staffng yet. Job descriptions change all the time.

    What about the mentality that doing this is beneath nurses? If it is in the job description, then problem solve how to make the bags lighter or emptied at a different time.

    New Graduates-How long to find first job

    Thats the problem Vintage. The majority don't get after the 6 months. I found hfo a joke. I applied for months before I graduated to hospitals that were posted but hadn't used hfo in years. Better to keep applying when working with hfo.

    New Graduates-How long to find first job

    Within 2 months of graduating I had a fulltime night job. I think positions in ON are grim again. I had over 50 nurses apply for casual lines I posted.

    The mohawk conestoga mcmaster program is super hard if you don't have experience. Trust me. I have many friends in all years of the program.

    Fired during probation... what now-- more than 1 yr RN

    At least there is a paper trail op. Most facilities may let you go without a reason during the probationary period. Please don't take it too personally. Try again:)

    This sums up my employer. My employer doesn't do it to skimp other departments or degrade the nursing team. It comes down to additional duties until a solution is made.
