    LVN vs. ADN

    Where I am, you can test for your LPN after your first year of an ADN program (based on two-year program). So ADN takes all the same curriculum plus another year of more advanced classes and clinicals.

    How long is this going to last?

    Sorry if I didn't scroll through far enough to find another thread, but what is everyone's thought on how long these ridiculous contract rates are going to last? I couldn't resist taking a local travel gig after seeing the rates and being told "as mu...

    Patient Abandonment

    Yea, next time the entire unit is abandoned tell them to find another sucker that actually cares about the patients at the facility to come in. Just wow... people on this board are like wahhhh I don't make enough money and in the next breath wahhhhh ...

    PTO?

    You might want to see how much of that you can carry over to avoid losing some of it. Some places will pay you out and others it'll just be gone.

    ER and schedule VS hospice and schedule?

    I work PRN at an inpatient hospice facility. I would never be a case manager (which I'm assuming is what you're talking about since you would have on-call days). If you like hospice but want to do your shifts and go home, maybe see if there is an inp...

    Psych nursing and previous SI

  8. Jeez at least half the non-clinical staff that work in the building I'm in right now have been residents in the same building... and they are on just such another level of ability than people who have no personal experience with what they are helping...

    Patients who are faking illness

    I deal with this all the time and it can be very frustrating. I work in both inpatient and residential settings with residents who have frequent pseudo seizures or who just plain want to be sent to the hospital. The most important thing to remember i...

    What to do after academic dismissal?

    Good ADN programs are frequently more rigorous than BSN programs. My recommendation is to figure out why you failed out of school in the first place and correct that problem before throwing away more money. To answer your question, if you don't ...

    Dimensional Analysis - Math Problem

    You are confused because you are trying to incorporate a distractor into your math. 5 mL vial, 100 mL vial... it doesn't matter. 1 mL / 10,000 units

    My family doesn't think Nursing is for me.

    It was at my school. You didn't have to work as a CNA, but you had to either already be a CNA or go through their CNA program, including clinicals, before starting nursing courses. Definitely a great requirement.

    Eye protection for ALL patient interaction

    Ours does, but I fortunately work at a building separated from the main building on campus and no one here wears eye protection nor cares if anyone else does. Every now and then we'll get a chain email sent out, but nothing changes.

    how to get into hospital??!

    First step is either move or get your BSN. CA is oversaturated.

    9-5 (or 8-5) shifts as a new grad possible?

    Probably depends where you live, but where I am it is absolutely possible. You may have to look outside of the hospital and maybe consider a specialty you weren't necessarily looking at, but yes, totally possible.
