Well, I posted this in the LTC Forum only to realize that there are only about 2 ppl in there....:P SO, i thought i would add it in here...
I am an LPN at a 100 bed LTC facilty with about 15 Medicare residents. We just had a state review and got tagged horribly because of the incomplete/inaccurate MDS. They gave the 2 MDS nurses the option or resigning or becoming floor nurses. They resigned.
Well, the DON offered me the job today and I am to meet with her tomorrow to discuss it. Well, I have done some research on responsibilities and feel I would be cabable of doing this especially because of the training I would get...
My question is this....how much should i request for pay? I am in NW Arkansas and LPN floor nurses start out here at 18.50/hr. Also, is hourly or salary better? I know it can go both ways.
I appreciate all of your input!!!!
