I had an interview at a LTC facility for a staff development/infection control nurse. I read another post by a nurse that said all the things she had to do in LTC as a SDC (give PPDs to all the staff and residents, etc., etc.), and that it was still overwhelming after 3 years. I'm a little worried if I'd be able to handle it O.K. if I was offered the job, and that I wouldn't spend endless hours finishing up the job's loose ends at home. I have a husband and kids, and I often prefer part-time work as long as it's enough to pay the bills. This position is FT, and being on rotation to be the manager on weekends. It would involve caring for T.B. tests, Hep. B, flu shots, infection control reports, inservices, on-call rotation, as well as a couple other things. And although I've had quite a few years of nursing experience, I don't have much long-term care experience and no management experience, although I do have some experience teaching nursing assistants. The facility also has a history of poor surveys. On the other hand, in this day and age it's great to have a stable job with benefits, and I do like teaching. I can imagine myself being happy teaching nursing assistants if a job opened in a community college, but I don't have such a prospect available now. I do have another interview coming up for a different position which I might like if I were offered it. Sorry to ramble, just hope someone could shed a little light on this subject, and how to decide if a LTC SDC position is a good fit.
