    No CNAs

    Just came from helping my private duty patient with quadriplegia at the hospital. Mom has been taking care of him 24/7 while he is inpatient and I go in to help out and relieve her. I don’t know how you can keep patients safe without CNAs. I mean h...

    LPN to RN online programs

    I did Excelsior LPN to RN in 2012. It was accredited for NJ.
  3. I had to do a project for community health with some hours but it wasn’t very structured. Mostly I did hours on my days off here and there. Not a big deal.
  4. I went to WGU. I had a BA so I transferred most of the general ED credits. It was fast and cheap. Mostly paper writing. I did it because I had just graduated with my RN and was in school mode.
  5. It’s not rude. I would call the office and keep letting them know she is taking the tablet home and not bringing it back. The no addendum/no MAR written for new meds is a MEDICATION MISTAKE and is 100% her fault and poor nursing care. She could at le...

    Thank you!
  7. Private duty. You are right. They didn’t care about having a BSN. WGU took me 3 semesters working full time which is a year and a half.
  8. I got my BSN right after my RN (was an LPN for 7 yrs) even though I stayed in homecare. I thought if I wanted to go into a supervisor position or switch jobs it would be required. I did it really cheap at WGU online. I don’t regret it but I’m glad I...

    Staffing issues

    Same issues here. Or the nurses don’t show up and you have to stay. It’s awful. I don’t want to work 7 days a week.

    Family refuses to meet in person

    Once upon a time, I had a supervisor that retired who I trusted to go out and do the work of setting up everything and making sure the household was safe. But now, I don’t have that same level of trust in the agency. So go with your gut.

    About that age.
  14. Jury duty. We were filling out a 20 page questionnaire about us (it was a death penalty case) when someone came in and said we were under attack. We couldn’t leave until we filled it out. A month later I had to go before the judge, the defendant and...
