Brandon, thank God for nurses like you
I had become burned out on LTC not because of the residents, but because of management, and I used to love LTC. However, I am ashamed to say that because those precious people need nurses, aides, managers, ancillary staff, etc...who care enough to give them the time of day and try to make them as comfortable and content as possible.
As hard as I have tried to get away from LTC and into a clinic or other area, apparently the good Lord wants me to stay where He called me, and that is in LTC. I have an interview Monday morning with a cute little homey LTC home in a small town and I look forward to it. When God calls us to do something in particular, He tries hard to keep us going in that direction one way or another
al586, always remember there are people in this world who need others to care for them, whether it's a young child or an elderly person. It takes people like you with hearts of gold and full of compassion to let them know we care and will do everything humanly possible to make their days on this Earth better. God bless you!
