    From what I've heard, the pace at a nursing home is a lot slower than your typical city hospital med-surg environment. You may want to consider how fast-paced you want your first job to be.

    :caduceus: Really like working faster pace right now since I graduated about a year and a half ago...Knew of a prison nurse (slow paced like LTC) who lost a lot of his understanding of hospital nursing since he'd been away from it...SCARRY!

    Good luck, congradulations I pray you'll pass the boards quick and easy!



    PS. Have a lot of respect for LTC nurses; my best most compassionate nursing instructer worked LTC...she knew nursing like the back of her temperature savvy hand.

    Aside*** thought of new term to call a nurse who starts out in ICU gets tired way way tired, moves up to medsurge and later finds the perfect LTC gig....call her/him a FULL SPECTRUM NURSE
