  1. Advice: LPN considering informatics

    Hi all, I know the majority of nursing informaticists are RNs. Any LPNs out there in informatics? If so, what path did you take to get into informatics? Background: I’m an LPN (9 years experience, mostly ambulatory) who currently works...
  2. Hey y'all! Just wanted to let everyone know that I gave and completed my two weeks notice, had a couple of interviews during that time, and accepted an offer to work in a doctor's office. I start next week. I'm excited, and by the time I start, I'll ...
  3. Thank y'all. I put in my two week notice yesterday. I'm excited because I feel better already. And I'm scared but strangely excited for a new adventure! I'll keep y'all posted! Thanks again.
  4. Hi all, I am an LPN. I have been at my first nursing job for a little over 8 months. I am very unhappy, and I feel my mental health is in jeopardy. The thought of working one more shift induces a near-panic attack! (Literally--I'm having attacks on m...
  5. Stick it out or get out?

    And thanks to everyone else also for your replies. It helps having all of your perspectives. I'm working on a new plan that might give me more satisfaction in my nursing career. I'll keep y'all posted. :)
  6. Stick it out or get out?

    Orca, thanks for the reply. I was very upset when I made my post. I've, sadly, been thinking how best to respond to your advice. Overall, I do genuinely appreciate your advice. I've done some reflection and my manager isn't the problem. I feel horrib...
  7. Stick it out or get out?

    Okay. I need some advice. I work at a men's prison in the cell block. I've been trying desperately, but I can no longer lie to myself or anyone else: I want to leave this job. I'm really disappointed in myself now because I am not a quitter. It's b...

    Okay. I need some advice. I've been trying desperately, but I can no longer lie to myself or anyone else: I want to leave this job. I'm really disappointed in myself now because I am not a quitter. It's been four months, and I was ready to fly the c...
  9. New LPN

    A belated thanks to y'all for the advice. I really appreciate your tips. Things are going okay thus far. I'm still adjusting to being a nurse at all much less a correctional nurse haha.
  10. New LPN

    I got the job! I start on Monday, 4/15! Very excited! Any tips for a brand new LPN starting in corrections are appreciated.

    Thanks, NurseShanniePants! I think the interview went well. The facility seems well managed and clean, and I could definitely see myself beginning my career there.
  12. New LPN

    Hi y'all! I'm a new LPN (graduated in August, licensed in November) in Louisiana. And I'm on the oh-so-wonderfully-fun first job hunt. I have an interview tomorrow morning for a position at a nearby women's prison. I'm excited because I think it'd be...
  13. Perspective on Possible New Job

    Thanks, Esme. I appreciate the hugs just as much as your words of wisdom I've read around the site.
  14. Perspective on Possible New Job

    For anyone who was interested, I just received a call from the unit director. I did not get the job. They chose a candidate with more experience. There is supposed to be a night position opening in the next month or so, and she welcomed me to apply ...
  15. Perspective on Possible New Job

    Hi, AngelRN27! I'm in Louisiana, and I've heard that Florida LPNs are usually exclusively in LTC or HH. The hospitals in my area hire a few LPNs, but the opportunities are hard to come by if you're a new grad with no experience. But I'm sure that's t...
