Hello Rehab Nurses!
I am a newgrad who has been working on a post-op lung surgery/medsurg with tele floor. I have just completed my 12th week of floor orientation and my manager told me that I am not a good fit for the floor because I am too slow. I have been improving and taking 4 patients a day. My manager wants me to be able to take 5 patients. Unfortunately, I was told to resign or be terminated in 2 weeks.
I spoke to human resources about transferring to another floor. I was told that the sub-acute rehab floor in our skilled nursing facility is slower-paced. I have an interview on the sub-acute rehab floor on Thursday. Has anyone worked in both med/surg and sub-acute rehab? Is sub-acute rehab indeed slower-paced or more manageable? What is the nurse patient ratio like? Since I may be transferring, should I ask if there will be any sort of orientation at all?? Even a week of orientation since it is a different floor? What are the differences between sub-acute rehab and med/surg? What other questions should I ask?? I appreciate any advice.

HI! i came across your thread when searching for acute rehab information on this site, and like you a year ago also have an interview for an acute rehab unit, and was wondering if you could tell me what kind of interview questions you came across? Was it specific to the unit? or just the general? Thank you , I appreciate your help.
