what is it like working in assisted living?

  1. - ive worked very busy ltc/subacute for years. im a bit under the impression that assisted living is alot more relaxed since the patients are alot more independent.. whats it like out there? i have an interview tomorrow..
    - and what is the pay like, in comparison to ltc/subacute?

    RNs can only supervise, and its salaried.. which means being on call 24/7, on top of the hours worked at the facility.. the staff working under you may be unlicensed/uncertified, so they work under YOUR license. not a good deal imo.
