Oh shut up. Don't act like you didn't. Now I am a proud LVN and I absolutely love what I do but there's no way in hell I would put up with all the crap if I wasn't being paid well for it. I was a CNA before and i truly enjoyed it but at 8 dollars an hour I just couldn't do it any more. You can shove the Florence Nightingale stuff right where the sun don't shine because you know damn well people do it for the money. As long as they do their job and treat their patients right who cares their motivation for being a nurse?

you know what smart ass some of us do really becomes nurses because it is our passion..if u do it solely on the pay it gets old after while and your liable to quit or treat people badly or become a sour ass nurse..so thats your opinion but I get up every morning and enjoy working at the clinic I work for! And to me gaining my title as l.v.n was a long term goal I accomplished and the rewards of pay came to no surprise as I was happy just to have finished school and get a job in del rio..so quit being rude and realize that being a nurse is more than just better pay!! It takes compassion,heart,skills,multi- tasking,good decision making in split seconds,good communication skills,service,confidentuallit y,understanding,ect...i have these skills and much more I love my job and I understand each and every patient..thats being a nurse

Yeah, yeah. Take your sob story somewhere else. I never said I didn't love what I do. I enjoy the money and as far as it "getting old" I've done it for 14 years and i've loved every day. I can tell you are a new nurse because you want to rattle off a list of characteristics a nurse should have. Good for you, little girl. Come back in ten years and tell me how you feel. And you work at a clinic. Oh wow. I'm glad you put your nursing education to good use by using a vitals machine all day. "Decision making in split seconds?" The only decision you make at work is McDonalds or Burger King. You shouldn't even be allowed to call yourself a nurse. Take the hint, if a machine in walmart can do what you do at work you probably wasted a lot of money in tuition :)

Nope, not bitter. Just sad that someone who worked hard to be a LVN wastes their talent as a blood pressure taker. Whether you use a machine or it's "hands on," its still a simple task a monkey could do. That's why they are using more and more medical assistants these days in clinics. They can do the same tasks as you for cheaper. When was the last time you used your assessment skills? Put your schooling to good use and get a real job.

Wow ur a recent lvn n that's how you talk? I would not hire someone like that. And no I didnt do it for the money I wanted to be a doctor but could not afford it, I could however afford nursing school but that was 20 years ago. Back then lvns got paid a smidge more than minimum wage, and r.n.s a few bucks more. So no, I obviously did not do it for money, I wanted to be in the medical field and help people.

That is the first thing that comes to mind when i hear the word LVN Blood Pressure Taker or the one that hands out medication, but can't call in any meds. Funny that All Del Rio Prides itself of being a Nurse. In my mind if you dont have your 4yr Degree at a real University STFU. You are No Nurse. I wouldn't trust you with my life nor my children's! Fact!

@ Nietas - sorry to tell you the hard truth, but a 4 year degree does not define the nurse you become. I know plenty of LVNs that have more common sense, better skills, and more nursing qualities than a bachelor prepared nurse. So you wouldn't trust us with your life or your children's lives? Guess who's the first to take your and their vital signs at your local clinic. There are still LVNs working at the hospital in the ER and med/surg floor where you and your family can get treated. Believe me, the LVNs with their 2 year certificate can wipe their a$$ with the 4 year degree some of these new RNs have. The only one who isn't a nurse is you.

whats the difference between blood pressure taker and lvns? Same thing they cant call any meds, they arent trained for it. They cant diagnose you. They cant refer you to any doctors and they for sure arent able to see any patients by themselves a Registered Nurse, Nurse Practiotioner, Physician does all that. Sorry i am a Nurse Practiicioner i did over six years of school and have my masters plus two yrs of schooling on top of that. I hate when people that havent gone the distance want to take credit for my role in the nursing field. Just cuz they handed you the meds it doesnt mean they called them in patients.
