  • Re: Insurance

    As far as I know, malpractice insurance is a matter of personal preference.&nbsp; But I wouldn't work without it.&nbsp; In New Jersey, the policy I have costs under $100 per year.&nbsp; Well worth the&nbsp;cost. &nbsp; I've never had to use my malpractice, but it's an ease on my mind knowing it's there if I should ever need it. Good luck in your ...

  • Re: RE:ceu

    I'm also an LPN in New Jersey and effective with renewal of 2008, one is reguired to have 30 ceus in order to maintain one's license. I've found that sometimes I'm just taking a test in order to get the ceus and not really retaining the information I've read.&nbsp; One good thing, the job I'm at now, I'm able to go on the computer during ''down'' ...

  • Re: test

    First, congrats on your new endeavor.&nbsp; It has been 37 years since I took my state boards, so I'm sure things have changed quite a bit since then.&nbsp;&nbsp; My only advice, from personal experience, is not to second guess yourself and go with your first choice on the answer.&nbsp; Good luck.

  • LPN's scope of practice

    All I want for Christmas is that all states and places of employment become uniform in the scope of practice for LPNs.&nbsp; The State Board may state&nbsp; what&nbsp; the scope of practice for the LPN is, but many employers decide to limit their practice, so LPNs are not working to the full scope of their license.&nbsp; Uniformity for all states ...

  • Re: wages

    I'm a&nbsp;LPN in Ocean County and left a position at &nbsp;a local hospital to work&nbsp;at&nbsp;the VA clinic where I took a $3 an hour pay cut.&nbsp; I had worked at the hospital for over 37 years and I wasn't making $28 per hour.&nbsp; I am impressed that the pay you received in Ocean County was that good. Good luck in your hunt.
