LTC RN advice

  1. 0 I am a recently licensed nurse (ASN) w/no medical field experience except for my clinicals, that being said, is a nursing home a good place to get my career started? Ive applied to a lot of hospitals for the last several weeks but I have not heard anything back from anyone, 3 of them were for graduate nurse positions. I'm getting really desperate, Ive heard that a nursing home is not the ideal place for a new grad but I really need a job. This particular position is on a subacute unit of the nursing home, will this help me attain the skills I need? ANY ADVICE IS VERY APPRECIATED!

    I have been wondering the same thing! I figure any experience is good but I honestly don't know if I should just wait it out and keep trying for hospitals either.

    I was just offered a position but now it's for alzheimers/dementia patients not subacute....Don't know what to do! Do you happen to know how long it takes for apps to be reviewed?

    No I don't. I am sorry! Congrats for the position. Honestly, the alzheimers/dementia sounds really interesting!
