New grad starting in LTC - Page 2Register Today!

Quote from zefuteboleraHey everyone,
So I finally got a job after months of searching. I got hired in a LTC, they claim that the nurse-patient ratio would be 20:1, is that good? I've been reading a few posts here and I've heard that LTC is not a good start for a new grad, but I'll try me best to survive! So I'm here to ask for tips, and any advice from everyone. If you work in LTC, can you please share your daily routine? I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks everyone!
