  1. I'm currently working for a home health agency as a BSN-RN and my clients are very dissatisfied. The problem is there are no other agencies that service the area we live in. We constantly have problems with staffing, scheduling, and customer service but because of where we live we feel powerless to do much about it. I work with 4 other nurses and we were complaining about basically doing all the work and wondering why we even need a nursing agency. We do everything from writing our own schedule to providing our own supplies while the agency sits back and gets paid. We were wondering if it's possible to open our own agency or just bill medicare/medicaid/tricare directly and not bother with an agency at all? Has anyone ever tried this? What were your experiences and how would we get this started? Thanks in advance!

    LVN school vs BSN school

    That Guy. So looking at her course work, would you say that the material was more difficult to learn or there is just more of it? If you two were to switch places, do you think she would have an easier time in BSN school than you would in LVN school?

    LVN school vs BSN school

    That was kind of my thought. I failed both of my pharm exams, and one of my OB exams technically (you have to average a 75 on an exam to get a "C"). It feels almost like taking calculus without knowing basic math. I'm so far behind on everything, and the ones who seem to do well already have some sort of medical background. I have nothing but love and respect for LVN's, so much so that I want to become one; but my ultimate goal is to make my way back to being a BSN. I hate the fact that I invested so much time and money to get this far, but if I keep going down I really feel like I'm not going to succeed.

    LVN school vs BSN school

    I'm a father of two, a husband, a full time worker in an unrelated field, and I live 45 minutes away from school one way. I'm drowning in BSN school and I'm thinking about dropping out. I want to go back to school and get my LVN, and maybe go back to get my BSN. I most definitely bit off way more than I can chew, so my question is this. Is an LVN program easier in terms of course work, harder in terms of course work, or about the same in terms of course work? Right now I'm about a 2.9 average in school, but I currently have a "D" in OB and Pharm. Prior to nursing school, I had a 3.82 GPA.
