I hope so have been an LVN for 23 years with most of that time spent in either Er or and ICU setting. I know I have been grandfathered into my spot in the ER and If I ever leave that position I will not get it back as an LVN. I have trained many new nurses for ICU and ER I love what I do but like many others I have put off school to take care of and raise a family. I am now 50 and wonder If I could even stand the rigors of nursing school. I have taken the entrance exam and hope to get into school next May. If not then I will just keep working for that retirement.
