Tribute to Rebecca Anderson by E.V. Stankowski RN:"Rebecca was an LPN that responded to the Oklahoma City Bombing and courageously gave of herself to help the injured. While she was inside the Federal building caring for the sick, she was struck by a piece of concrete debris from a falling wall. The incident ultimately led to her death (five days later)."

Nurses Views of The Nursing Profession, http://www.nursefriendly.com/views

To Be A Nurse Takes A Special Kind Of Person By Vicky Oliver, LPN:"As an LPN for the last ten years I believe I could give some insight on my experience as a nurse. I am the type of person who is always doing something for others instead of me. My experiences in nursing consist of Medical Surgical, Doctors' Office, Emergency Room, Surgery, GI Lab, Urology, Utilization Review, Recovery Room, and the Nursing Home.

They also treat bedsores, prepare and give injections and enemas, apply dressings, give alcohol rubs and massages, apply ice packs and hot water bottles, and insert catheters. L.P.N's observe patients and report adverse reactions to medications or treatments."

    Virginia Colored Practical Nurse Association:"On April 21, 1947 a group of African American licensed practical nurses met at Hood Temple Methodist Church in Richmond to establish the Virginia Colored Practical Nurses Association (VCPNA). The first president was Edwina Barnett of Norfolk. The organization was a constituent of the National Association of Practical Nurse Education until the National Federation of Licensed Practical Nurses (NFLPN) was organized in 1949. The VCPNA met jointly with the Licensed Practical Nurses Association of Virginia (LPNAV) at the Hotel Roanoke in 1971. The delegates voted unanimously to merge the two organizations to form the Virginia Licensed Practical Nurse Association (VLPNA)."
