When I was in nursing school
, I never had the desire to be a hospital nurse, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I started off working as a RN in the same LTC facility that I'd worked as an aide in for years, then broadened my horizons and accepted a position on a telemtery unit. I thought the acute care experience would be beneficial. I've been working this unit for 6 months now (not long, I know), and recently I've been thinking of going back into LTC. Don't get me wrong, working on this unit has been a wonderful experience and I have learned A LOT, but I don't know if hospital nursing is for me. I miss LTC. As cheesy as this may sound, I feel as though it's my calling. A lot of people think I'm nuts for even wanting to work in LTC, but I honestly enjoyed it. I even filled out an app for a new LTC/rehab facility in town. So, has anyone else been in a similar situation? Should I pursue a position in LTC?
