I have worked in a Rehabilitation Unit for 1 1/2 year now. I am so thrilled with this job!
The first thing we learned was transfer techniques that are better than the ones taught in nursing school
. The training is taught by Physical Therapy to any nurse or nurse techs starting this job.
We work as a team with all the disciplines, each backing up what the other teaches/does. We have staffing every week where each discipline discusses the patients needs, goals and how to implement our training.
We are a Carf accredited program and very proud of our unit, staff and the patient care we provide.

I think you will be very happy with this position if you decide to take it... but it may spoil you for other nursing assignments in the future. *smile*
