    Skilled Nursing Facility....Old folks home is what some people call it. Hard work for the CNA mounds of paper work for the advanced practictioner. If you can survive....you can do anything.LOL

    Skilled Nursing Facility.....we have one at my hospital. It's kind of like med-surg step down. They are too sick or weak to go home or to a nursing home, not necessarily a rehab candidate, but no longer acutely ill that they need hospitalization.

    Good luck. Skilled care is what med-surg was many years ago (med-surg is now what ICU used to be) and you should learn a lot there.
