    renewal of lpn license in pa age 66

    It’s a lot more difficult to get it back after you don’t renew.

    Did anyone ever refuse a trip w/patient?

    Yes, you are right, I meant “she”. I go with them on the outings. The mom has expressed concerns about her maybe trying to get control/custody of the patient?! Weird, weird situation. Agency is fine with her being there all the time. Actually agency is fine with just about anything as long as client is not complaining. I give up.

    Ready For The CPNE

    I understand the fear. I was CPNE eligible for a while. I went to a bootcamp and all the students there had failed and regaled me with horror stories. It took me a while to get up the nerve to register, but I practiced all the time and passed a year to the day I went to the bootcamp!

    LPNs- where did you work as new grads?

    I worked at a LTC on subacute and regular floor. No hospital would hire me as an LPN. After 1 1/2 years I started working private duty home health and have been here ever since!

    911 and no admission, now what?

    I’m not sure. I know they will transport home after an admitted stay. Your best bet if you feel on the fence is to call the PCP and get an order to send out to ER or an order to have them wait to be seen in the office. I know transport companies don’t want to transport to the ER so that’s out.

    Who Did NOT Do a Year of Med Surg?

    Started in SNF because nobody would hire LPNs for med-surg. Now as an RN never had a hospital job.

    I now have an RN license, LVN expiring soon

    I renewed mine for the first year as an RN. I placed it on inactive status when renewal came up again. I did this through the renewal portal. I’m in NJ though. Check the website as if you were going to renew. There may be info about this. Hope this helps.

    LPNs and meds

    Private duty LPNs administer meds in the home setting. Home health aids don’t do this.

      Thank you! I was working in Babylon N.Y.when I was doing profile . Now I am looking for work and it's not easy for me. I am old compared to most nurses,and now I limp. (From old injury) I do have 26years of experience as an RN and was stupid and left a few good positions all cos I listened to my husband . Where do you work?

      I work private duty homecare for Bayada Home Health.  I’ve been working there since 2007.  Before that I was an LPN and did subacute and LTC.  Homecare is less stress and more rewarding IMHO.  😁

    Does your agency still use paper charting?

    We are getting tablets for charting in November. I am hoping it goes well.

    Where were you...9/11

    In court for jury duty! No one had smartphones and they wouldn't allow us to watch TV. Someone said they are bombing NYC and people started freaking out. After filling out papers they let us go. Called my work but they had left (was not a nurse then). Finally went home and saw what happened.
