TCU's for a new grad?

  1. Hello all! Well I just graduated in December, it's a bittersweet feeling to be joining all the many new grads out there looking for work in this economy. Any recommendations on which TCU's to look into or stay away from in the twin cities? How's the Walker Methodist facility in Minneapolis? Are there any facilities with a large veterans population besides the homes in Minneapolis and Hastings?

    Thank you for your input!

    Any nursing home that will take you. If you are lucky you'll find a nice place, if not, hopefully you'll get some experience and find another job quickly.

    The places that I interviewed and really seemed like good places to work were GoodSam homes and Presbyterian Homes.

    One of my nursing classmates has worked there for a year and a half, and absolutely hates it. The nurses do all the cares, treatments, vitals, meds, everything! They have a few aides, but they seem to disappear and be basically unuseful. The patient to staff ratio is very high--14-18 and higher when someone calls in. I interviewed there and didn't get it, but that turned out to be a good thing.
