I am a new LPN just starting out in LTC. This is my first nursing job ever. My orientation was not very long and then I was let out on my own. I am a little confused about what orders we are allowed to write? Do LPN's write all of the treatment ordersor do the doctor's write the more invasive ones? And with meds, is it OK for the LPN's to write orders for things like cough medicineand anti-diarrhea medications? Whenever I ask another seasoned nurse one of these questions, they look at me like I should alreadyknow this. I am not afraid to ask questions, but I am not getting answers. Please help me get some clarity.
