    RN with Athabasca

    As far as I know all of the classes are online. The best example I can give of the difference between the RN and my LPN program: the A & P textbook used by my LPN program was 490 pages. The A & P textbook for the RN program is 1200 pages.

    BE HONEST! What part of your job do you hate?

    Sputum. What I hate most though, is the anxiety. Nursing is a 2nd career for me and I haven't been at it long enough to feel comfortable. Every shift I wonder if this will be the shift when I make a simple human error and harm someone with meds;...
  9. Just curious...I have six years of university education (non-nursing) and I am an LPN. So where do I fit in in terms of "2 extra years in university teach you to think differently"? As I have six years, does that mean I am an LPN who thinks like an...
