  • I did! just be sure to be aware of rooms with residents with MRSA & such. & watch your weight restrictions. . .don;t be afraid to ask for help. I worked up until almost 9 months as an aide :)

  • I worked as an LPN in a dialysis clinic, full time until I had my first. ( lots of lifting and pulling)Just ask your doctor about what is safe as far as lifting.
