  • How Do You Boost Morale in Your Workplace??

    I was wondering how the morale is on your units?? I work in a hospital and our census is high and everybody seems to be dragging. But the thing is,&nbsp;morale is usually lousy. Seems&nbsp;no one wants to do anything but complain. We have no control over the types of patients we get or how many, but&nbsp;the staff seems stale and ...

  • RE:returning to nursing

    Can you work part time?? How does your illness affect your practice? Have you tried office nursing?? What types of areas have you worked in? It would be to your advantage to take the IV course, if possible. I think if you could return to nursing slowly, perhaps part time, you may have better success...( then if you can get into an area that you ...

  • Building a Better Image

    How can we as LPN's build a better image of our profession?? I hear a lot of negative things and a lot of complaining about how we are treated, and not given the recognition we deserve...but what are we doing to change this?? Are we continuing to support the image of the LPN who is a 'low paid nurse' or the 'let's play nurse'...I just saw on this ...

  • RE:Response..

    I was wondering why you see a disenchantment for nursing. I too, see a definite morale issue..and I will speak for LPN's specifically,&nbsp;since I am one. I see many LPN's who have no passion for drive to improve their practice or work environments. I see nurses who complain about 'unfair' treatment but are never willing to do ...

  • Nursing shortage

    Doubtful. The scope of practice varies so much from state to state for LPN's.&nbsp;If you were to challenge and broaden &nbsp;the scope, you would also have to provide the education for that. LPN programs are usually 12 months long in Pa; 15 if they are part time. You would have to work that into an already tight curriculum and there are not ...
