As some of you might remember I am trying to get back into nursing after a 4 yr rest (June Cleaver thing) I cannot do the 12 hr shifts the hospitals here demand. That would be too much time in daycare for the little one. The nursing homes have a 6-2 shift that wold be a be more manageable. I have never done LTC and was wondering the ups and downs of it. Would any recommend it over hospital work? More or less stress? How hard is the physical labor part of it? The pay is about the same as the hospital so that doesnt factor into it. I really have no idea what I might be getting myself into and dont want to jump into it if its worse then hospital work. Any info from you pros helpful!
