No I didn't. I'm currently in a small rural hospital. The psyche position was in a large state mental facility, I was there for 2 years. The longest 2 years of my life. Whle I worked there I was doing prn in the telemetry float pool of a local hospital. After I quit working at the state hospital I just worked float pool in a large hospital and contiuned prn at the local hospital in telemetry. That kept me plenty busy. Very Happy

new LPN here
I have been an LPN for 24 years, now working with developmentally disabled adults (love it) with a group home facility (love it) in northern Illinois.
I am working slowly on getting my Rn...it may or may not happen....depends on what life brings me!
I plan on semi retiring in 10 years or so, and working part time....and wintering in Fla, while working part time there as well!
any suggestions on that idea?

Hello all!!!!
Hi everyone,
I just found this interesting site!! I am a mother of 5---- 4 boys ages 21, 19, 12, & 10; and a girl age 5. I am married to an awesome man, who is the best!!!
I have been an LPN for 20 years, and an RN for less than a year. I am continuing online for my bachelors to masters.
Currently, I work on an inpatient rehab unit... which I love. However, I had a chance to orient on a surgical floor, which I like even more. My goal is to eventually be an inhouse nurse educator, and possibly a wound care specialist. I love wounds... the more involved, the better!!!!
So, looking forward to using this site!!!
