  • Re: I need your nursing/hospital ratings

    Sandra I agree with you. I live in southern NJ and had recently worked for a LTC facility. I was the ONLY white nurse on day. All other nurses were fillipino. I was made to feel VERY uncomfortable.As far&nbsp;as the language, yes I agree. I had witnessed first hand that they would talk about other co-workers because it was very blatant. I had a ...

  • Re: Nursing shortage?

    I&nbsp; agree with you Gail.

As of this date I have sent out 158 applications and faxed out over 40 resumes. Although I have been an LPN for 20 plus years, have credentials through ...

  • Credit reports during applications

    During the last few weeks as I filled out employment applications, part of the new application process is not only a criminal background check, but also a credit background check. I recently requested a 3 in 1 credit report (Equifax, trans union etc) and sure enough two prospective employers checked my credit, one of them being a nursing agency. I ...

  • re: To Immunize or Not to Immunize?

    When my daughter was born (18 years ago) I was horrified by all the vaccinations that was to be given to her within the first year of life. I &quot;chose&quot; not to have her vaccinated until she was one. Yes she did have check ups but I refused the shots. At one point her pediatrician had basically threatened me by stating &quot;by not giving ...

    Congrats, and welcome to the wonderful world of nursing. Try looking into long term care for employment. Many hospitals tend to shy away from hiring LPN's &nbsp; Good luck and again congrats

  • Compact Nursing license for NJ

    This Post is really directed to the State of NJ. Will the State of NJ ever pass the ''Compact License Act''?&nbsp;I live in South Jersey, and it seems that it is getting harder and harder for LPN's to find decent work in this area. There are many opportunties in Central and Northern Jersey, and many in South Jersey for RN's. &nbsp;

  • Re: Tips

    Keep doing what you are doing and don't sweat it. If you are only working there on the weekends, not only are you doing as you were taught, but also very cautious.
