Can someone give me more information about insurances requiring a year of experience? I obviously don't want to be charged with fraud. I don't see how new grads can be hired so widely and publicly if this is actually true. Maybe only certain cases require this and they don't put the new grads on these cases.
Please don't attack me, but working with just one patient one on one and keeping my eyes on them seems safer than working at a nursing home with 30+ patients. My friend said she got 3 days of "training", then she was on her own, and as an RN, she was the charge nurse. I do realize that kids are fragile. In clinicials, I was the first one to notice that my patient's blood pressure was not stable, and my nurse was on her lunch break and seemed less than concerned, but nevertheless that patient got a saline bolus once the physician saw her.
Acute care is just not an option for me in the near future, but it may be next year. However, I can't wait a year to start working.
Is all private duty considered LVN level work, or is it divided between RN level and LVN level? From what I understand if they are "stable", then it is LVN level. Starting off I will try to not take any cases that have had a history of frequent hospital admissions.
