Licensed Practical Nurses are nurses too !! Often times LPNs are discriminated against and OUR roles have been misunderstood. Some even go as far as stating we’re not REAL nurses.
All nurses do a tough job on a daily basis. No matter the title and initials behind your name ....let’s remember the common goal is to provide care for the sick and infirm.
ONE LOVE ❤️ ONE GOAL!!!
I get asked lots what I do for a living , I reply , I am nurse. I am immediately then responded to with “ oh your a registered nurse!” I respond with no. The response I then receive is “ oh your just a LPN. “ I furthermore reply , yes I am an LPN but I am not just an LPN, I am a nurse who cares, a nurse with compassion , a nurse who may not have as much book education as a registered nurse; but a nurse who has more heart than any time spent in school can make. I am just the LPN whom is there for your family member when you may not be able to be , I am just that LPN who will sit with an elderly man when she gets a spare minute to play a game of crib to see the joy in his eyes. I am just the LPN who will sit by your bed side even after the clock says my shift is over because I know you need someone there. I am am just as much of a nurse. #lpnsarenursestoo#licensedpracticalnurse#proudtobealpn
I just finished my first term of my RN BSN class this week. I know it's been more than a year since this incident happened but long story short when I enrolled my LVN (also known as LPN, enrolled nurse, RPNs in province of Ontario). My ex bff was in the RN BSN program and she would constantly speak to me like she was my mom and I was her daughter just because LVNs work under the RN. Not only that but she would constantly criticize me like when I'm not ready to donate blood, she would call me a wimp. Eventually I broke and started ignoring her and finally told her I am no longer her friend. When my mom found out about the incident, she would constantly tell me to kick myself in the butt to get my RN. After Louis released his new song two of us, I wrote my own version of the song reflecting the incident. According some classmates, this chick is still enrolled in the school but thankfully I haven't come across with her on campus. I was so relieved after I finished writing this song. #twoofus#lvnsarenursestoo#dissing#stopthedissing#lpnsarenursestoo#enrollednurses#lvn#lpn#rnwithabsn#louistomlinson
YES!!! I am a proud LPN! At some point I will attain my RN, but I am proud of where I am and what I am doing. And let me see an RN take care of 32 residents at one time!!! It would never happen! #proudLPN#yesiamanurse#lpnsarenursestoo
