NoAverageLPN has 5 years experience and specializes in Infection prevention and control.

I say I am no average LPN because I am tired of the bad rap that is automatically associated with being an LPN. I love being a nurse and am pretty great at it! :o)

    ADN Program challenge exam...

    What school are you at?? I had to take an 'entrance exam' to get into my bridge program even though I have been working. It was basically on Fundamentals and Transitions...it was just like taking the NCLEX tho..pretty challenging I must say!!

    Help please!!!!!!

    You can also google but at the top you will see Web, Images, Map, etc and then you will see more with an arrow, click on that and select scholarly and that will give you a list of only scholarly journals and articles. Good Luck!!!

    This seems unsafe to me..

    Agreed. Best lesson I ever learned that was not taught in nursing school. I get picked on by other nurses because I chart and document so much but I will tell you this, I have had to go head to head with the State of MI as well as surveyors and my documentation has always held up where as other nurses are not so fortunate because they did not heed the warning CYA!!!

    What GPA do you need to continue?

    I am at Baker College and we have to maintain a B average. When I went to OCC for my LPN it was a C. I would think those who are upset are obviously those who want to skate by and not put much effort into it which when they get out and licensed (if they make it that far) will have a harder time transitioning from student to nurse. Also, when 'fighting' the school caution should always be taken because it can back fire on you. For instance, we had an issue with an instructor and when we fought it we ALL had to retake the class and some of us actually passed with a 4.0 but it didn't matter.

    This seems unsafe to me..

    I have been in similar situations and have on several occasions taken a break in the courtyard of the facility with a couple of my high risk residents. I would pull my paper charting and the my two lil ladies who could not seem to keep themselves off the floor out there with me and kill about 4 birds with one stone. Leadership had a HUGE issue with it but I cleared it up with this: If you don't want to come in here and help me reduce the liability that will fall on my license you are just going to have to deal with it or fire me.

    Pregnant while in nursing school?

    I started my LPN program in January and was pregnant with our first who was born the week before my first clinicals started. I had 6 weeks left at that point, I had the option to start again in the fall but I pushed through driving my 2 week old baby to a very loved and trusted friend of the family and cried the whole way to the hospital and back. I got pregnant with our second child during my OB rotation and was 6 months pregnant with her when I graduated. I'm not gonna lie, it sucked!!!

    I am LPN to RN and since they changed everything, pharm doesn't count for me anymore which really kind of made me mad considering I already had it at OCC on top of taking 3 other classes....UGH! So if I wanted to figger it out I would add my gpa for the science classes twice to get my average right.....
