  1. Stitches on my finger, go in to work?

    Update: I ended up calling HR this morning to tell them what happened, sent them the note. They’re going to send it to the house supervisor so they can take me off the schedule. Tried calling my manager but she’s on vacation till Monday, so not reall...
  2. So earlier today I sliced my thumb with a knife while cooking, ended up needing 5 stitches. Called out tonight because of it. The PA that put the stitches says she’s doesn't want me to work the next 2 days because I need to keep my thumb dry, which m...
  3. I ended up quitting during my orientation. It was just way too much responsibility for a new grad with no experience to handle. A little bummed but also relieved. I would have had support there from the LVNs and CNAs. They were all super nice to me a...
  4. New Grad Los Angeles, CA

    Well, I didn’t make it past 3 days! I realized the supervisor role as a new grad was not the best fit for me. It was just so much. I got overwhelmed so quick. Staff is very nice and supportive and seemed willing to help, but to me it’s just not worth...
  5. On my shift right now and I’m already feeling so overwhelmed. The RN seems to have to do everything. I’m feeling very discouraged. I don’t want to continue here, but this is only my first day. I feel bad for wanting to leave because they already inve...
  6. New Grad Los Angeles, CA

    Hiii are you still there?! Super late I know LOL but I am going to SNF nursing as a new grad! They have me as RN supervisor and I am SCARED. Any advice/tips?! I honestly don’t know what I’m getting myself into
  7. So I just got hired an a new grad RN at a SNF. At first I was really excited because this will be my first RN job! And maybe this is my fault, but I went in not knowing exactly what my role would be. During orientation, I found out I will be RN super...
  8. CA NCLEX-VN. Question!

    Hi I recently just graduated from my LVN program 8/16/18. I submitted and paid the $150 application fee and I'm still waiting for my school to send in their paperwork (annoying b/c it's been almost a month and they still haven't done it!) Am I still...
  9. Struggling in 2nd semester

    Hi all, I feel like I need to vent a little bit and maybe get some advice from you guys. I'm currently in an LVN program 2nd semester, planning on bridging over to 3rd semester RN when I'm done. Right now we just started our med surg rotation. I've ...
  10. Should I consider an LPN program...

    I'm currently in LVN school, but I'm taking it at a community college where tuition is MUCH cheaper. I'm paying no more than $3000 for the whole program. Does your area offer it at a public community college? I think going through the LVN/LPN route i...
  11. There's a girl in my cohort whose 3rd language is English. She does have a very strong accent when she speaks and sometimes its really hard to understand her. She also writes how she speaks, so she does have poor English grammar, BUT this girl tries ...
  12. Pre-Requisites in Southern California

    I took my prerequisites at Pasadena City College. The science classes are kind of hard to get into during the semester. I had to take anatomy in the summer and physiology in the winter session. I'm not sure if they offer weekend classes for them, at ...
  13. What did you learn in Micro?

    You learn all about bacterial and viral infections. It's very interesting actually! But it is a tough class because there's so much information. Definitely comes up when you're in nursing school.
  14. So I really need to take physiology. I took anatomy this past summer session (6 weeks) and got an A (90.6%). I don't think I will be able to get into physio for the semester because of my registration time. I have a better chance of getting it for th...
