California Armenian Home, Employment opportunites for LVN/LPN.

Professional Registered Nurses (RNs) graduating from the Nursing College in New Jersey.  If given the opportunity would you hire this or .....................

What will happen to the future of the California Armenian Home, she no longer talks to her niece Loraine Quinn (Bristol) but has some predictions:
Future of LPN / LVN and the bridge to RN (or bridge to no where)
First of all the Nursing Home industry is here to make money and will not pay large salaries, that is reserved for the Administration.  The future will be no more LPN/LVNs because of the fact that MA (Medical Assistants are now registered) MA can do essentially the same as an LVN/LPN except for the IV, but they can just have the Nurse supervisors do the IVs. 
LVN/LPNs are a cheap labor force and very few are continuing on to an RN because they have flooded the market.  Most are too lazy to head back to school or do online with Excelsior College like Jan Vawter did at the age of 52.  But the push is for cheap labor to do these tasks and more profit for the Nursing Home. 
Unfortunately, when you get locked into a nursing home it is impossible to switch to anything but another LTC facility.  The LVN/LPNs you are lifers like Jan, Diane, Nellie and the rest that have been there for over 10 years.  Lor Quinn (Bristol) will just have to stay put for another 20 years.
In 50 more years (2063) it won’t matter because the next generation of Armenian Business people in Fresno County will not be bothered with keeping the place alive and upkeeping.  The Home Guild and Ani Guild cannot get new members.  The new generation prefers home health care without the politics of Yuba.  In 2063 there will be no California Armenian Home because there is no interest in maintaining this money pit.  Donations shrink year after year and the home survives on Medicaid of California.   No one cares anymore.  


Some Facilities Phasing Out Licensed Practical Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses

If you are a current or future licensed practical nurse, or licensed vocational nurse, will you be able to have a career as such in a few years? While some facilities, particularly acute care, are cutting back on LPNs (Licensed Practical Nurse, also known as Licensed Vocational Nurse), LPNs and LVNs are projected to experience significant growth in demand, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

HealthLeaders Media reports that some state regulations limit the practices of LPNs, such as not allowing them to dispense medications. However, many areas of the country have such a great need for healthcare professionals, LPNs and LVNs will still be very much needed in those areas.

One myth busted in the HealthLeaders article is regarding the Magnet program: there is a common misconception that a facility must do away with LPNs in order to become a Magnet program, but that is not true, says a source quoted in the report.

With the BLS projecting 21 percent growth for the LPN/LVN profession through 2018, the outlook is still good for prospective licensed practical nurses, unless you want to work in acute care. Additionally, you will probably have more job options if you live in one of the states that allows LPN/LVNs to dispense medications to patients.

Some hospital systems in certain states are phasing out the role of LPN/LVN, which is putting some people out of jobs, or forcing them to take a demotion, or to go back to school. Therefore, as you plan your career, be sure to check out the situation in your state or intended state of employment to confirm if this career will be a good option for you based on your location, trends in nearby facilities, state regulations, and level of income you're seeking.


New RNs find job market tight
From USA Today!!!!

Even as a national nursing shortage looms, many newly graduated registered nurses can't find jobs because the recession has delayed retirement of experienced nurses,
regulators and health care associations say.  Those who find work often can't get the better-paying hospital positions they'd hoped for and instead are turning to nursing homes,
 home health care or other settings, says Carylin Holsey, president of the National Student Nurses' Association. An advisory for new grads published by the association warns that the
 market is "flooded" with experienced RNs who have come out of retirement, delayed retirement or gone from part-time to full-time employment because of the recession.


Watch as she slips into booze and pills, as her dreams of being an RN fade away.  We will make sure she stays right there with no future in the health care industry in Fresno.  Forever and ever, with a .20 cent an hour raise .  Cha Ching              Cha Ching
Working poor of America.  Poor little thing.  She should have thought about that before she invaded the privacy of a patient's family.   Poor poor thing.  
The only other option is Golden Living Center.  YUK, it must suck to be poor Lori.

It's all who you know Lori and you just don't have the connections like we do.

  1. LoriFRAUD stay there forever remember everytime you drive up the long driveway about your actions and invasion of patient privacy and violation of civil rights. As the home slips year after year and you grow old in the place like your idol Jan Vawter or Diane Ash (a couple of losers) We will watch as delight in the next 10-20 years as you go down with the sinking ship. Don't forget who we know and the clout we have. All you have is your white trash and wet back buddies, and they would sooner get their friends hired and you be on the unemployment line. Better go find a rich husband or get a degree from College. It might improve your situation.
