  1. Feeling Discouraged....Did I choose the right profession?

    Also, one more note, I loved my patients but I hated the politics and bullying I have experienced at my nursing job. I never said that i hated my patients. Being a caregiver was all I ever dreamed but dumping 50 plus patients on a nurse is not what ...
  2. Feeling Discouraged....Did I choose the right profession?

    Yes you're right. I wish there was a way for me to see the real world of nursing prior to now. Oh well. 3 nurses told me prior to graduating that nursing is not what people make it out to be. Wish I would have listened. Lesson learned. Thanks for t...
  3. Feeling Discouraged....Did I choose the right profession?

    Yes there is an RN that works on the floor with me. I told her that I was leaving and she took over. However, I feel as if I don't stand a chance because I had already started my shift. I never imagined that after all of my hard work this would happe...
  4. Feeling Discouraged....Did I choose the right profession?

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. However, I believe that my frustration has caused me my license. Although I put in my notice a few weeks ago (I submitted a 30 day notice ) I became overwhelmed and quit my shift 2 hrs in. I told the charge RN th...
  5. Feeling Discouraged....Did I choose the right profession?

    Thanks PostpartumRN for your comment. I am hoping that once I become an RN I will enjoy nursing more. I do not like LTC by any means. However, I also believe that working as an RN in a hospital will not be any better. It will still be very stressful:...
  6. Hello all! First I will start with my background. I have worked in a variety of healthcare settings for the past 9 yrs since I graduated from high school in 2006. I always thought that I wanted to be a nurse. I always admired nurses and wanted to bec...
  7. OMG JUST GOT THE GOOD POP UP. But is it reliable?

    Ok i just did the PVT and got the good pop up. Is it really reliable? I know there are umpteen postings about this so I'm sorry to post this but my nerves are shot right now, I just don't know what to think. I took the test about 2 hrs ago. My comput...
  8. OMG JUST GOT THE GOOD POP UP. But is it reliable?

    ok, I just did it and got the "our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time" pop up.
  9. OMG JUST GOT THE GOOD POP UP. But is it reliable?

    I don't know if I can wait! I'm trying to distract myself and do other things right now but I don't know how long I can do that:) My computer shut off at 85 questions today. I feel like I failed because I only had 1 or 2 'hard' questions and a lot of...
  10. How soon does the PVT work? I take my exam in the morning. Should I stalk the website all day or just 'try' to wait anxiously until the evening and try then?
  11. Finishing program but very hurt and disappointed

    Thanks I really appreciate this!
  12. Ok, so I have to vent. I am completing my LPN program next week. A classmate has just informed me that despite the fact that ALL of us have worked VERY hard in order to pass the program, only a select few will be receiving special awards. I can under...
  13. I passed my first semester of nursing school!

    Our program operates using a point program:) You have to achieve 278/400 total points in order to pass the semester.
  14. Is LPN school hard?

    YES!!!!! It is still nursing school. We lost 30 students in our first semester. Only 14 of us remain in the last semester. I have been able to stay afloat all year ( our program is 12 mos) up until now, the last semester. I entered my program with a ...
