- 0Sep 10, '07 by busy-beeHey everyone, I have an interview Wed. for LPN staff nurse position. They mentioned they have a MDS cordinator's position open but was not sure if I had any experience. Understanding my chances are slim to get a MDS position, I have researched and find it appeals to me. I feel I am organized, detailed, and like to care plan. I have seen many LPN's go into MDS without experience. What qualities, job performances might they be looking for?

Something that is important to me is to still be willing to help out on the floor even though I normally sit in an office...it makes a big difference when you are doing the MDS if you actually know the resident. It also takes a lot of patience...sometimes families can drag the simplest care plan out for hours!
