New to assisted livingRegister Today!
- by lauriepat Feb 18Hi everyone, just looking for some advice.
I have been a working LPN for over a year now,
I am in school to get my RN. I have worked in a local family practice office mainly as a "message nurse." I did phone triage nursing, taking calls, giving lab and radiology results..
I am starting a night shift 11p-7a at an assisted living facility.
I am nervous/excited for this next step in my career!
Any tips/tricks warnings??

I'd highly recommend that you get a copy of your facility's disclosure of services to understand the services you can offer and then get very well acquainted with your state regulations on assisted livings. Also, keep an eye on those CNAs and document EVERYTHING!
