I am a RN with 6 years of experience... all outside of the hospital. I have worked LTC, Rehab, Psych, Corrections, School and Camp Nursing. I just got hired to work at a LTAC.
I'm a little nervous as I haven't used a lot of my 'nursing skills' lately. They said they will be putting me through extensive training and assign me to a preceptor. BUT I'm wondering if there are some resources online that I can review in order to better prepare. Any suggestions? Videos... Articles... CE courses...?

Look up information on chronic critical illness syndrome. That will give you a great overview of what to expect with the majority of the patients you will see in the LTAC setting.
