Im starting home health tomorrow! ive been a medication nurse for almost a year and I feel like transitioning to a wound care nurse feels like starting over from scratch again! I have a lot to learn. Has anyone ever been in this position? And how hard was it to transition?
Our clinicals...were...interesting..aside from the fact that one of our instructors was on some kind of trip where she was screaming at the top of her lungs threatning to call security if one of our fellow students didnt leave because according to the teacher the student was 1 minute late...and on everyone else's clock INCLUDING the hospital she had well over 2 min. to spare. it was so bad the nurses heard across the hall and told us they were going to complain to our school because it wasnt right the way our teacher handled the situation.
talk about someone needing ativan

Why would it be on the RN's license? I mean, isn't the whole purpose of being LVN is so that their license is the one that will be held accountable? Im aware that RN's are in charge of the lvn's so to speak, but it would be our own license (LVN) that would be getting hurt.
