  • Re: Hanging IV Meds

    Here in Florida - LPN's have to be IV certified to work anywhere. They past this ''law'' years ago - and of course, never offered us a penny more for being IV certified. This is what I love nursing - NOT!

  • Re: private duty nursing

    I prefer private duty - and have done lots of it in my 30+ year career. Makes you feel like you can effectively make a difference. There is not enough ot it available, unfortunately.

  • Re: RE:Nursing shortage

    I sure wish that Florida was as progressive as California. I would love to challenge the Rn boards. But alas, we are ''not in the loop''.

  • Abusive Supervisors

    She did not laugh at me - but held a meeting with myself and 2 other LPN's on the 11-6 shift at a local nursing home.

  • RE:RE:wages

    Florida LPN wages are below par for the national and as such, should be considered a disgrace. As an agency nurse, I have made $17.00 hour (private duty) for the last 10 years. There have been NO cost of living wages - and I just recently accepted a 'real' job at an assisted living facility for $15.00 an hour, because it is closer to my home and ...
