I'm working in assisted living. The actual education I am receiving on the job can be described as piecemeal, on the fly, in the form of "Oh, and you have to do this..." (blabber, blabber, blabber). Does anyone know of any comprehensive formal education on the role of the nurse in Massachusetts assisted living facilities? I know what the reg is, I plan to slog my way through it, but I'm hoping for something more. I've found Mass-ALFA and they have a 90 minute video for $99 but I'd like to find out if there's anything else available.
I'm still looking for someone who can give me the skinny on the role of the nurse in assisted living. Any info on courses? Organizations? i.e., what is the best organization to join? I'm particularly interested in dementia, so am interested to hear about any specialized programs, classes offered, as well as specific book recommendations.
I'd love a mentor.
I'm looking for anything that will help me move along a little faster in understanding how care/services are delivered in this setting.
