  9. I have worked both day and noc shifts I prefer nocs b/c you don't have to deal with the politics to much but I do and have worked very hard at night i worked in a LTC facility there were 2 nurses and 2 cna for 174 pts. talk about being busy!! you had your work to do plus help the cna with there work. I never got out of work on time and was always getting in trouble for that but what can you do. This LTC facility always put the full weekly skin assessments on the noc nurses.

    Do you/ did you have a Nurses Cap? Pin?

    We never had any caps for school and I think I received a pin at graduation but I have it put up somewhere. just not sure where right now with the move to a different state and most of my stuff still back in IL. maybe I will find it this summer when we move the rest of our stuff to NV.

    LPN acronym

    i had an RN that I worked with that always down grades the lPN she worked with. she would always refer to us as Lets Play Nurses. but we worked harder than she did. we would find her hiding in an office (noc shift) working on school work (masters) or sleeping. needless to say she got fired for her attitude and the falling asleep at noc and doing homework instead of helping take care pt. we had usually 2 nurses and 2 cna for a 174 bed facility. I never let her see it bothered me but I did write her up and report her several times. but I was not the only one who did this. Cna complained as well as other LPN's

    what got you into nursing?

    I never even thought of the nursing field until 15 yrs ago when my oldest son was born at 28 weeks. He spent 70 days in NICU. Ever since then I decided I wanted to be a nurse. for me I had to take the small route CNA, then LPN now working on RN. I have been in the field for a total of 10+ yrs. it was the nurses dedication, teaching done to us, understanding, caring that got me hooked. I hope you can find your way back to remembering the positives of why you went into nursing. good luck
