My name is Keeli and I am an LPN on a Bariatric/Renal med-surg unit. I love my job! I am currently finishing my Associate's degree and am in an LPN-to-RN nursing program. I plan to continue working on my current floor once I am finished with my ADN.

  1. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    While I hear you and will consider making changes, is it not unethical being so anonymous online? Shouldn't we fight for more transparency and have policies in place that protect people from being unfairly judged against? It all just seems a bit disi...
  2. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    I won't give up! lol It's just not in my nature- I'm sure that's pretty evident though. :)
  3. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    You seem to feel very personally attacked by me, although I don't really understand why. I apologize if anything I said sounded patronizing, but you seem to do it well yourself. Everything I said was said dead-pan. I did think it was quite an odd que...
  4. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    What an odd question. I've never been in a texting-while-driving car accident, but I still know the rights and wrongs about it. PS- I wouldn't consider myself preaching, just voicing my opinion. Like you and everyone else.
  5. How to study for nursing exams?

    Hi! I'm in an LPN program, and many of the students did not do as well as they'd hoped on their first exam either- but I did pretty well, so I'll tell you what I did to prepare! I love using my version of a concept map (it's really just a two-column ...
  6. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    It sounds like you're speaking more out of a negative personal experience with a student than as a whole concept? If you had nursing students who followed you into the latrine (which is a private area and sounds a bit like no privacy was given) then ...
  7. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    The "professionalism" I'm referring to spans across ALL professional jobs, so please don't get on a high horse and think that nurses are the only "profession" I'm referring to. Also, saturating your reply with sarcasm and then trying to make a point ...
  8. I just failed my first nursing exam

    Wow, that 80% is cut-off is a little rough- my school fails you at 75% or less, so I know your pain! My initial suggestion would be to take a step back and look at the questions you missed and what type of questions they were. Select all that apply? ...
  9. I passed my PN NCLEX!!!

    Awesome! Congratulations.
  10. Nursing associations?

    Thanks for letting me know- I had no idea! :)
  11. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?

    ***I am a student nurse, so this is coming from MY perspective given all of the feedback going on in previous comments.*** Here is the tl;dr version of how I think things should be: -Students should be responsible for completing tasks that they are a...
  12. Nursing associations?

    At our college, we are a part of the NFLPN (What is the NFLPN? All About the NFLPN) and that is strictly for LPNs and LPN students. Our dues are $25 per year and they offer scholarships, recognition for high GPAs (stoles and pins upon graduation), an...
  13. Study strategies!

    I am speaking from a slightly different perspective, as all my books are digital (per my institution's policy), so sorry if some of this may not carry over. -I love flashcard apps like Study Blue and Quizlet. I mainly use them for definitions at the...
  14. How is everyone doing 2016 Class

    YAY! 2016 LPN Graduates represent!! I will be graduating in July of 2016 (I just started my program this August) and am already thinking about the future. So far I have thoroughly enjoyed the skills and information we have been learning, but I can't...
  15. New LPN student

    Okay, so here's the deal- I prefaced what I had to say by telling everyone that I usually DO NOT write such negative things, and I mean it. However, the only negative things I mentioned were in reference to the "for-profit"colleges like Everest and D...
