    Message from an RN to LVNs

    Hello, I just read a post by an LVN stating that LVNs are looked down upon. I have also heard from more than a few LVNs that RNs do not respect or take their role seriously. I am an RN and I have worked with many, many RNs and we have also wor...

    New Grad RN Can’t Find Job

    Maybe work in an LTC or in SN as an RN to demonstrate that you can manage the patient load as RN? Perhaps repost asking former LVNs that have transitioned to RNs how they did it. Good luck.

    Hello, I am sorry you are experiencing this. Do you have nursing liability insurance? If not, get some asap even though it may not cover this incident. If you already have insurance, call the company and discuss mom's allegations. If you do ...

    Future Medical Assistant! Any advice

    What justpeachykeen said, and you will likely make at least $10 more an hour with the potential to make more if you go the LVN/LPN route for just a few more months of education.

    Intermittent Catheterization

    Sometimes you will have to have a second go at it for various reasons. Each time you start over reclean, maintain a sterile field and change your gloves. It's funny to think of how much we go through to cath a patient when many Pts discharge and ca...

    Nurse going on probation

    I worked at an LTC that gladly hired a nurse who was not allowed to give narcotics, so Laura RN may be correct in saying they might be more forgiving of stipulations.

    Telling People Your Nurse Title, RN or LVN

    I just say "Nurse". Also, if people asking you about becoming an RN is off-putting, perhaps just completely ignore the question. It's presumptuous and I would find it annoying.

    How do I go about re-negotiating my pay as a staff nurse?

    You are certainly smart, well-spoken, know your self-worth, and represent yourself eloquently. I support you asking for an increase. 1) you can ask a mentor nurse or two what the minimum for your experience is and then work from there 2) HR should...

    How To List My Credentials In Correct Order

    Congratulations on your achievements! I used to wonder why some list both "BSN" and "RN" in their credentials --- it's a bit redundant since it is generally understood that a BSN is an RN.

    Maybe 4th times a charm ?

    Wow, I had almost the exact same experience. If you feel like your license is in jeopardy then it might be time to leave no matter how short your stay is. A lot of nursing facilities have unscrupulous practices. If they are reputable, at the very ...

    I recommend purchasing the UWorld app and completing all the questions. It is comprehensive and user-friendly, you can highlight text, and create flashcards within the app -- including diagrams. The app has excellent diagrams.

    Medical Assistant During Nursing School?

    Congratulations on beginning your nursing journey. If I'm not mistaken, MA programs are nine months long, they are also generally paid less than CNAs. My CNA program was five weeks. You might see more illnesses and higher acuities as a CNA in a ho...
