Hello everyone I got hired as a nursing supervisor at this nursing home close to my house I have no nursing home experience but have hospital experience for Abt a year.. Can anyone tell me how this job is going to be?
Quote from Nascar nurse
Oh my oh my....you are going to want to change that little statement really really fast! LPN's are nurses and you will be counting on them heavily while you are in the learning stages. I kid you not...they will eat you up and spit you out if you dare to tell them they are not nurses!
I am seriously trying to help you here. There is nothing more irritating to a lifelong committed LPN that thrives in LTC than to have a "hospital know it all RN" show up and tell them they are not a nurse.
Nascar nurse is spot on here...
You want advise DON"T TELL A LPN NURSE SHE IS NOT A NURSE
Wow sweetie if you make this comment at your work it will be the biggest mistake of you RN nursing career...You will loose all respect from your LPN NURSES, and your job will become a living nightmare. You might want to say your sorry to the hundreds or thousands of LPNs on this board as well
2nd word of advise is as their supervisor please give your LPNs and your CNAs the RESPECT they deserve. As you stated you are new to all of this and many of those LPNs and CNAs know what they are doing and know how the LTC works.
