    Will I Lose My License? | Knowledge is Power

    Thank you!
  2. Private duty. You are right. They didn’t care about having a BSN. WGU took me 3 semesters working full time which is a year and a half.
  3. I got my BSN right after my RN (was an LPN for 7 yrs) even though I stayed in homecare. I thought if I wanted to go into a supervisor position or switch jobs it would be required. I did it really cheap at WGU online. I don’t regret it but I’m glad I...

    Patient gets 8 hrs a day skilled care. Primary care giver is old and sickly, she needs surgery plus whatever else is going on with her. She gets 24 hrs paid to be a home health aide for the patient or he can hire someone. Family doesn’t really want t...

    Staffing issues

    Same issues here. Or the nurses don’t show up and you have to stay. It’s awful. I don’t want to work 7 days a week.

    Family refuses to meet in person

    Once upon a time, I had a supervisor that retired who I trusted to go out and do the work of setting up everything and making sure the household was safe. But now, I don’t have that same level of trust in the agency. So go with your gut.

    Nurses That Never Worked In A Hospital...

    I never worked in a hospital. I started out as an LPN and no hospital would hire me. After I got my RN I never got a hospital job. I DO feel like I missed out. I wish I would have have applied after I got my RN. Now I feel I’m too old to try ?

    Covid vaccine for homebound clients?

    Update: Local VNA told me they will schedule home vaccines when they get the J&J one since it’s easier to transport and needs one dose only. I was finally able to schedule an appointment for pt and mom at local megasite for May 1. If we get somet...

  14. Anyone have any luck getting a vaccine for homebound clients? Client could not make his appointment and we had to cancel. Very difficult to take him out. I keep trying to reschedule the appointment but it’s been almost impossible. Congressman just s...

    How much do you owe in student loans?

    $0. Gen X here. College in the 90s was WAY cheaper than today. Got a BA at a state college near home. Paid for with a part time job LOL. Went the LPN, RN, BSN step by step paying as I went later on. A second degree is not many courses.
