Hi everyone, Tomorrow, I have an interview at a SNF for a new grad position. After submitting countless resumes to hospitals and acute rehab hospitals without any luck, I am excited for a real live interview! The issue is that I'm nervous about working in a LTC facility. I have heard HORROR stories about new grads in facilities like this - and even stories from experienced nurses as well. I've been working as an aid on a locked unit at an AL facility, so I do enjoy working with the elderly - but it's the idea of a huge workload and a poor patient/nurse ratio that scares me. So anyways, I'm wondering what kinds of questions I should ask during the interview or what kinds of things I should check out at the facility which might give me a clue as to the working conditions and whatnot.
Any input and insights would be appreciated. Thanks!
