  3. Reasons patients turn on their call light

  11. "I do the same thing as an RN"

    The hospital I worked at for 33 years has phased out the LVN's . I was so glad to get to retire before I was told at age 60 to find a new job.

  15. What nursing task do you loathe???

    Things like starting IV's and colostomy bag changes ,that are difficult. I became very good at because I thought of it as a challenge and the patients were given better care.
