You'd get more responses if you posted this in the geriatric nurses forum. LTAC is not the same as long term care. That said, be prepared to be overwhelmed with almost everything the first few weeks. There is a lot to learn as a new nurse and especially a new nurse in long term care. Take notes, ask questions and don't act like you know more than you do.
You'll be able to use any assessment skills you have. You might hate the first few days, but try to stick it out. It can be a great place to have your career.
Thanks!.. I know, I should've but anyway, I started the orientation today. It was overwhelming as Im only an agency nurse, we can only work part time. And the orientation is only 3 days. But Im still hoping for the best!.. Then we'll be doing probation for 3months then they get to hire us. Thanks again CapeCodMermaid for your reply.
