    Oh, I almost went over to the dark side a few years ago because I hated what I saw when I was working in LTC and wanted to make things better, but the job didn't pay enough to make it worth all the travel and the crazy schedules. Sorry. :chuckle

    I am not one, but I work with an RN who is he does hemodialysis clinics and home health. He works LTC on the side. He is a good source of information and a good Nurse.


    Much Peace

    I think I would enjoy it and be good at it but not worth the money. Poor job if you have school age kids. How can you travel overnight?

    the DON of a facility was in the middle of a survey when the leader of the survey made her a offer of a job..told her she could they would meet her current salary and she could build up credit so that when she retired she would have state benefits in addition to what ever else she had
    she walked in administor office and gave two wks notice, after having been there for 15 years...

    I like the comment about going over to the dark side .... I was in long term care for about 12 years as a nursing home administrator in Florida .... lots of State Surveyor jobs there .... had an offer to go and looked into a job very seriously, but the pay was pathetic .... I asked the program administrator ...."how do you recruit nurses qualified to do this job when they pay so poorly" she rolled her eyes and said "that is why the quality of our staff is not the best." I could not believe she told me that ... but she was right. Most of the surveyors I dealt with were not the sharpest knife in the draw if you know what I mean!

    NO, but man, I would LOVE to be one, seriously, IF the pay was somewhat decent. I'm such a picky, anal retentive, PITA, I'm sure I'd fit right in, LOL.

    I'm a state employee RN and the nurses one grade below what I do are the state surveyors. My state employs scads of them. They make not terribly good cash (start at 22$ an hour in the midwestern US) but the benefits and pensions are wonderful. In my state they are split up into geographical areas so no overnights. Lots of travel and report writing.
