    Staff Nurses Who Refuse To Precept Or Teach?

    Is it wrong to pray that whoever gets stuck with me when I start my first new grad job in a couple of weeks likes having the newbie underfoot? How can I be a good orientee? I want to get off to a good start learning how to be a nurse.

    Holiday presents rolling in already!

    One of my classmates made each of us a personalized tumbler with our name and lpn. It would work well on a travel coffee mug.

    Are We Still Holding Back Baby's Head?

    He didn't even wash his hands or instruments between pts. He had free run of the hospital now known as the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asuylum. Side note: TALA's current name is actually a throwback to it's original pre-civil war name.

    ER or ICU in a critical access hospital. 6 months to go before I can work on making it happen!

    I hope you actually passed, however until you are licensed it's against TOS to use LPN/ LVN in your username.
