    Many places want someone that can hit the floor running, which if you haven't worked the floor for a long time in LTC then you aren't able to do. BUT, some places know a gem when they see one and are willing to give a bit more time for orientation. With your MDS background, you will be a great asset as far as charting properly, notifying them of significant changes, etc. Your job is out there, be thankful these others didn't work out.

    Thank you so much for the words of encouragement

    Hopefully the Administrator at the little country home I applied to will remember how dependable and hard working I was the first time I worked there.
