  1. Thanks to all that have offered your opinions and experience! I think I will try the "change shoe", padded socks and I also will try on some New Balance shoes to see how they feel. I will be ordering some Dansko clogs and will see how that goes ...
  2. Huganurse~ Great advice! Thank you for your input!

    Working at the VA hospital with Professionals!

    Brownie~ Two thumbs up! Your original post was received by me with your initial intent. Others like to look for "digs". Insecurities perhaps, or just the inability to accept the positive. You know, you just blew the whole purpose of this post wi...
  4. I have gone through so many darn white, uncomfortable nursing shoes I could scream! I am enquiring upon my fellow comrades to offer advise and opinions regarding which shoes (brand, style, etc.)are the best buy. Which are more comfortable, longer l...

    LPN's starting/infusing IV's.

    Mysti~ I agree with you! But that is the field we are in! A field of oxymorons...a field of healing/caring mixed with 'better-than-thou-isms' and injustice. I relish the opportunities that are coming my way, and know they will only benefit me,(a...

    LPN's starting/infusing IV's.

    Hello, been a while since I last posted on this BB. Hope this finds you all in good health and doing well. This is in regards to new standards of LPN functions in South Dakota. "In July 2000, the Administrative Rules of South Dakota were changed ...

    I Turned 5 Shades of RED!!

    Joke: Did you hear about the dead, naked nurse that washed up on shore today? How did they know she was a nurse?... -her stomach was empty, her bladder was full, and her ass was chewed out!

    Thank you John, definately words for the wise. The key word I think you emphasized was...STANDARDS. Where I work, in a VA hospital (Veterans Health Administration), the government does not recognize the LPN role. We are hired as 'nurses' but basi...

    P.S. I forgot to mention that I am a LPN, graduated and passed boards in 1998. I was an Orthopedic Clinical/Surgical Nurse for 2 years. I was the office nurse for an Orthopedic surgeon, and scrubbed/assisted in surgeries. By working in the clinic ...

    First of all--congratulations! Good for you for going to school to further your personal education, and for getting into the LPN program! Yes, it is very demanding and stressful. But know that you CAN get through it, "this too shall pass". Take e...

    Need to hear from happy LPN's.

    Are you content in your role? Do you think the LPN role is fading? Should all LPN's go on to get their ADN or BSN? or is it acceptable for someone to be satisfied being a LPN for their career choice?
