I've been working at an LTC trying to suck it up and get through it, but I can't tell you how miserable I am there. We have four different units at our facility and they just so happened to keep me in the Alz/Dementia unit, since they thought i'd be good there with my past psych experience. I'm really regreting leaving my last job (psych) for this one... I just took it for the higher pay for my family. But now I have a job offer to work for in a residential care dealing with fosters kids w/ behavioral issues. It's Mon-Fri, no holidays, 10-6, guaranteed lunch, and good benefits, 5 min away from my house. They said they have low turn over rates and i'm replacing a nurse that has been there for 13 years. Also, since it's a non-profit organization i'll probably have an opportunity to have my school loans payed off! The only problem is that i'm taking a 4 dollar pay cut. Would you take it? Please give me your opinions!
