1. My name is Rebecca (Becky) and I'm an RN.
2. Um, this is sort of what my question is about. Right now I'm working in a pediatric rehab facility, but on the neurobehavioral side. I'm moving, though, and looking into an LTC job which is how I ended up here. My *current* schedule is weekend option (7a - 7p). I'll be on nocs if I take the LTC position. 3. I've been a nurse for 2 years and I've worked in adult med/surg/onc and pediatric behavioral health.
Here's my question. I'm moving from Baltimore to the eastern shore of Maryland and looking into a position at a state facility (chronic hospital and LTC). I suppose I'm just looking for some general information about LTC, your challenges there, what you like/don't like about it, anything you want to share. My only experience in LTC was a clinical rotation there in nursing school (which was horrid, but it was our first one). The pay and benefits there are really attractive to me, and I'd be working a compressed schedule (7p to 7a, 3x per week).
I see this is a new community and not very active, but hopefully somebody will have something to say. Look forward to discussing this!
