So, I just graduated this April as an LPN. I currently work in a family practice/public health clinic. I really like where I'm at. The benefits are the absolute best! They pay 100% of the employee and family's medical insurance premium, plus match 401K up to 3% and you're immediately vested. The problem is that I'm not utilizing my skills. All I do is take vitals, bloodwork, UA's, and assist with Pap smears. I never do any Head-to-Toe assessments or any other clinical skill because of the structure of our clinic. Pretty much the physicians and other providers (physician assistants, nurse practitioner) perform the Head-to-Toe assessment, and patient education. I really feel like I'm losing a lot of my nursing skills by working at this place, however, I've become very content with it. I'm enrolled in an online RN bridge program and I don't want to be lost when I transition from LPN to RN by having no skills. My sister who is also a nurse advises me all the time that I shouldn't stay at my current job no longer than 6 months and that I'm pushing it if I stay any longer than that. It's like catch 22 here. The problem is that there's no where to go but a nursing home for LPN's. Also, I graduated from a school that didn't have their NLN, so my job pool is limited on where I can work.Any feedback would be great!
