Happy.Nurselet has 2 years experience as a LPN.

I achieved my long-term dream of becoming a nurse 2 years ago, and I am looking to advance to RN within the next few years. I currently work inpatient psychiatric and love it, though I recall fondly my time in triage. Wherever there are patients and friendly coworkers, I am content.

    LPN @ VA hospital & Overtime

    The slogan at the VA is “if you’ve seen one VA, you’ve seen ONE VA.” I work for a VA medical center and I love it! It’s a great place, but overtime is not that extreme. I have the opportunity for 8-16 hours on a good week, 4 or less on a not-so-good...

    Religion & Ectopic Abortion

    I'm glad to see that other Christians (Catholic and of other denominations) and non religious alike accept the termination of ectopics in this manner. @jetsy62 as for the question of whether terminating an ectopic pregnancy is abortion, by definition...

    For pagan nurses, is "Happy solstice" the right expression?

    I have tried out many religions, and for a couple of winters I was on the pagan spectrum. During those times I found the most respectful way to respond that I was comfortable with was "have a blessed Yuletide" or (merrily) "Yuletide cheer". I also us...

    What do you do when your instructors are useless?

    Critical thinking can absolutely be developed. I was raised by a mechanic and an English major. They are incredibly intelligent people, but have a formula for everything. I came into nursing expecting a formula. I struggled. I cried a lot. I almost g...

    Religion & Ectopic Abortion

    Hello nursing community! I have a question for you all. How do you feel about methotrexate or other drug-based treatment for the termination of ectopic pregnancy? As someone who was raised with very loose christian beliefs and spent some of my young ...

    Responding to psych patient requests/comments

    It's very difficult to tell over the internet. I have spent time after I finished my charting pouring over the internet for appropriate rehab facilities for patients and finding the best coloring pages or phone numbers or whatever they need- but it d...

    VA Hiring Process

    Sigh.... I'm both saddened and comforted reading these posts. I had an interview at the end of September and received a soft offer, have done all of my part, but I'm still waiting for a firm offer with a start date. While I do understand government r...

    Orlando Tech (LPN Program)

    No matter what education you have going in, everyone goes through the same program at the same pace, more or less. It takes 12-13 months. You are in class 5 days a week from 745-225 with variations for clinical days. The latest I ever got out was 3:5...

    Tips for the new girl?

    So far. Orientation has been mostly focused on med/surg areas, but this hospital system is one of the top 5 largest employers in my state so its not surprising. I guess I'll start orientation on my floor in a week, because its another week of compute...
