I am a new grad and just got my first nursing job yesterday! I will be working in a SNF as a charge nurse in a locked Alzheimer's unit. I'm very interested in psych nursing, have experience working with DD adults and completed a minor degree in psychology in college. I want to know what I can expect. I've never worked with Alzheimer's patients before. Does anyone have an experience that they can share with me? I know it will be challenging and I would like to have some tried "tricks of the trade" before blundering in cold turkey. Then again, that may be the best way to learn those "tricks of the trade".
