Okay, so I'm graduating in December and I'm seriously considering geriatrics/LTC as a career option.
I've got a knack for working with older folks (which makes me an oddity in my class of 23) and just don't like med-surg that much.
How do I find a job in one of these places? I've been looking online and no one seems to advertise for RNs in my neck of the woods (tourist destination in the southwest) but it could be that I'm looking in the wrong places. Should I just walk in and fill out an application? What about assisted living facilities? Do they hire RNs?
How would you advise a new grad in this situation? Also, I'd love to hear why you like this kind of nursing, because I haven't met many RNs who LOVE working with older adults.
