As a LPN to RN, I don't understand why LPNs are not allowed to push a med or hang first unit of blood. Why is it such a mystery ? As a new grad RN, I'm thinking why could I have not done this as a LPN. Does it really take a 2-4 year degree to know how to push a med. As long as you use the six rights and know basic nursing, a LPN should be able to push a med or hang blood.

I am a recent graduate from a BSN program and have been trying desperately to find an ER job in Central Ohio. I have been an Army medic for over six years including a tour in Iraq as a flight medic. I also have worked the past three years as an aid on a med-surg floor. I have done 2 interviews for ER jobs but the result was the same, "you have no nursing experience". While I'm not saying that veterans deserve special treatment, I am frustrated because I feel some of my experiences may outweigh those of any other nurse. Please let me know how to sell my army medic experience and get my career started on the right path.
