I think you're asking if hospitals are willing to hire those that started off in LTC?
If so, for this area I don't have any concrete proof, but I have read on the general boards it's been done so I refuse to believe it's an urban legend!
I'm trying very hard to get out of my facility. (it hasn't been for me from early on with the crushed pills etc...) I want 3 twelves instead of 3-11 I want my life back! I figure now that I have 6mos it would be a good time to really try aggressively. (rather than just try to put in apps here and there)
Mine was promised to be sub acute and is supposedly heading in that direction come end of summer. However other than feeding tubes, foleys, some general iv's and a pca pump...I've not really had the opportunity for major skills and that disappoints me. Right now I've finally connected with someone that is helping me to get into an ACLS class so I don't lose that certification.
I know of someone that just graduated CCAC and got into the hospital right away. Maybe the outlook is better for grads this year than last for our area. I just know it's extremely frustrating right now trying to get out of where I am.
BTW this is a slow forum isn't it?
