RN's In Nursing Homes ? - Page 2Register Today!
- Mar 19, '12 by sm06902Im about to graduate with my RN and currently work as a CNA in a nursing home. I am very afraid that a hospital won't count it as experience...how true do you think that is?
- Mar 21, '12 by incrediblemeThe problem with nursing homes is that there is no concern for the how acute someone is like in a hospital-if there were, we wouldn't be 1 RN to 40 patients on a skilled unit....and management doesn't really care as long as the beds keep full. I am a machine unfortunately. I try to squeeze in education and one on one time based on who needs it most. If you come in with a second knee replacement...you are not going to see me much except when you ask for pain meds (and I might be late...)
