  5. Anyone do nursing school with a toddler?

    My kids were 2, 4 and 6 years old when I went through the LPN program. I had started RN pre-reqs the year before that. (never found a bridge program yet) It sucked but I did it. My husband worked mon-sat swing shifts so we had to use a family friend ...
  6. New LPN with ZERO work experience. Am I doomed?

    Have you ever volunteered anyway? I had a huge gap from 2006-2014 on my resume bc I was a stay at home mom. I added my volunteer positions on mine. I coached AYSO soccer and softball. I am in an area (PA) that is begging nurses to work. Are you open ...

  9. Micro online?

    nursingabc is what a local hospital based RN program accepts. Ask your school if they accept it
  10. All experienced nurses need some advice.

    I would NOT be comfortable with that at all. Who is giving the meds on days you arent there? Are people getting them? Are you pulling narcotics? I pull the med, I give the med.

  14. CPM VS. BSN

    Follow your heart. I am an LPN and started my journey to become a CPM. I toyed with the idea of CNM but my heart lies in home birth and evidenced based births so hospital was out for me. Licensing for CPM varies from state to state but MD just became...
