HELP! I have recently found this forum. Thank God I did your ideas and advice are awesome. Can anyone help me out with this one, $$$. I am new to LTC, only one year. However, have been a RN for 20 years in hospital. Already interviewed for DON job, going for round 2 on Monday. I anticipate salary will be brought up. The administrator is the interviewer. A bit of back ground on the facilty is this: I know they had 3 minor tags last year. (50 bed bldg.) may in previous years. I know there is no DON now, last one left a month ago. Moral is shakey, many fires per the adm. and Adm. already told me to expect to work (inhouse) at least 50 hrs. per week (for salary pay based on 40 of course). We are on the west coast Washington/Oregon. This is a non-profit organization, one of the largest in the country. What should my starting salary be or expected to be? Any other advice is welcomed and appreciated.
Thank you in advance!!!
