I came on here looking for advice. I didn't ask to be judged and left wanting in other nurses eyes.
1.) I have met the OWNER and he is very comfortable with me taking the position as DON
2.) He is willing to TEACH me and so is the Administrator. I have met the nurses in the field and they are very well versed on OASIS.
3.) I wanted information on what to study so that I would have a leg up when I take over.
4.) The requirements for the DON position are: At least 2 yrs experience as an RN, one of which must be in HH. Willingness to LEARN and take some of the pressure off the Adm. I have been an RN for almost 3 yrs and have worked in HH for over a yr.
5.) I will also keep my other job and will be working 7 days a week caring for pts and working as DON.
6.) I asked for help, so I can provide the best care I am able to. Instead I have been told that I have no business taking this position. I didn't ask if I was qualified for the job, I already KNOW i am. I wanted to share in my good news about the position. Instead, I have been told that the employees will hate me and that I should quit before I even start.
