I'm interested a position at a nursing home with great hours, no weekends, and flexibility but their orientation is only one week!!! I'm very apprehensive. I will be responsible around 25 patient's to pass meds, do assessments, skin care etc. What is the amount of orientation at nursing homes some of you have worked at? I am a new nurse and I don't know how long orientations in nursing homes normally are, but this sounds extremely short compared to the hospital !! Please tell me what you think.
