    nursekc1, you are right L.P.N.'s will always have a place because if it wasn't for them work places would be in a lot of hurt and I agree with you about some R.N.'s, some do think they are above patient care. I appreciate L.P.N.'s. when I have L.P.N.s working with me I have a fantastic staff of workers and we all work together as a Team because we are much stronger together than we are apart and that is what Nursing is about, being together and being as One and giving the patient the best care that can be given.

    I am shocked at the comments on here. What ever happened to teamwork? I spent 6 years as a combat medic in the Army, worked as an EMT in the state of NY, completed LPN school in 1992, worked in long term care, STD testing and teaching, I am a CPR instructor, IV certified, worked as a pharmacy technician, a phlebotomist....but in the end all I am labeled as is an LPN. I guess my point is that there is no name tag long enough to list all of ones credentials and accomplishments, so before you say "They are just a CNA or they are just an LPN/LVN" maybe you should open your mind. There has never been anyone in my life that I have not learned something from. I believe that if you deny yourself that, then you are the one who will lose.

    Don't worry cause LPNs will always have a place because some RNs think they are above patient care and that's what its all about. We will always find a job.

    NursePatrice, I sorry that you feel the way you do! Its more than obvious that you harbor pain within your soul. Perhaps a few or more RN's have made you to feel less than human in the past and child, it shows through your reply's. Nurses , espically RN's at certain times tend to eat there young or anybody that wonders along the path. Stress can be a real factor and makes a lot of people say and do things they really should'nt have. Your reference to ( book smarts ) implies that for what ever reason, you are unable to further your education and are trying to defend ignorance with practice as equal to or greater than someone with a Degree?I wish the best for you and hope that you can find time to let some Jesus get inside you and overpower the uglyness that is holding you back from being the best you can be, without envy and bitterness that clearly resinates from your posts. To care for people, you have to have love in your heart. RN's are people too! I dont think you have a clue as to the stress and pain it is to get through school, it's not something that just happends in a library with a bunch of other book worms. Good luck with the rest of your time on this earth , and try to relax, were all the same people regaurdless of titles.
