    New grad LPN job offer

    I would say excitement! You will learn so much in both specialties but generally the bigger healthcare systems will offer more as far as advancement. Generally they are easier to transfer within departments (if you would want to change to a different...

    OBGYN clinic

    I have not asked the other office staff as I start next week and have not met them all :) Thank you for the information! I know they said one of my main responsibilities would be to triage incoming calls, and they did mention they have a book that I...

    Hello all, I recently moved from NY to VA and got hired in an OBGYN clinic. (Yay!) I am an LPN and I have worked in Urology for the past few years. Are there any good review books or sites I can browse as a refresher that anyone can recommend? Thank...

    Nursing is the Biggest Mistake of My Life

    It doesn't feel right....

    Will it get better?

    Let me just start out by saying I have been an LPN for about a year and a half. The first job I got was in a clinic that I did really enjoy. However, two weeks into the job one nurse got fired, and three months in, the other nurse moved. I was the on...

    Does this sound like I'm hired?

    I agree with above posters. They would not waste money drug screening all candidates and getting PPD's placed if they weren't seriously considering those people. Good luck!
