An opportunity has risen for an ADON position at a local LTC facility and I am wondering whether or not I should take a chance and go for it?I have been a RN for 10 years and have various experience in surgery, med/surg, telemetry and women's health. I am currently in the process of obtaining my MSN (management concentration). I occasionally act as a relief charge nurse, but other than that, have no actual management experience. I am extremely detail oriented and tend to gravitate toward projects that others would consider "busy work." While I have no LTC experience, I am a quick learner. My interest in this position is to break into management, although my co-workers think I am crazy for wanting to leave the hospital setting. I am not unhappy in my current job as a staff nurse, I just am getting tired of waiting for a managerial position to open up - they have little turnover at my hospital.Any advice from ADONs/DONs is greatly appreciated!
