Same Retirement benifits?!!!
What benefits? About the only benefits we get is a plaque and a gold plated watch. However, we can get a private room if we are hospitalized.

I think that we should have all levels of Nursing. LPN's can take the weight off of the ADN nurse, so she can handle the sicker patients, BSN's would handle sickest patients and MSN or above would be teachers and administrators.

We need to keep LPN's and stop using Med techs who have only a few weeks training to learn to start IV's and, in some facilities, they can give meds without even knowing what they are giving, why and side effects, etc. I find this very disturbing.

Peace,
