I've been a LTC nurse for 4 yrs & tele/ms for 1 yr. I love the LTC setting. I've recently been offered career advancement to either unit manager or staff development coordinator. Both seem interesting & I'm eager to learn. But I don't know which one to choose? I'm thinking it would be best to start out as SDC to learn the company/state policies & procedures like the back of my hand so I will be better at implementing them down the road. I loove to learn & attend seminars as well. I'm trying to get pregnant so the flexibility the SDC position has to offer is great & the difference in stress is clearly obvious. HELP I need some advice based on others opinions/experiences.
Thank you all! Staff development is/was what my gut is telling me to go for and I placed my request this evening. I'm soo excited as I'm an advard learner and love to teach.
