    When not enough aides are scheduled,and there are too many nurses,sometimes the nurses are scheduled work as an aide. The nurses pay stays the same.The company I currently working for says RN’S can not work as aides or be mandated to work as aides and the Lpn can,I find this to be a slap in the face. Yes I’m LPN of 15 yrs and I was an aide before that for 12 years. When I’m floor nurse I help the aides with their work,plus do my nursing duties. I paid my so called “dues” in my career. I feel belittled and not appreciated for my knowledge and skills and experience…

    I totally agree. So many RN’s don’t pay dues. I have been in practice 24 years. 5 years as a CNA. I have the utmost respect for them. The RN supervisors treat them like peons and God forbid they have to run a med cart. But, it does provide me with endless laughs for the shift.

    I seen a lot if openings for Medical Assistant preferring you to have your LPN over MA. Also where I work not at our hospital, but organization hires LPNs. Oddly once you become an RN in the state you can’t work as a Tech anymore. However, as an LPN can double dip kind of sweet. A lot of techs I work with are LPNS at outside LTC facilities.
