  1. Nursing tech vs. waitress?
    doesn't help you as much as you'd think. Hiring of RN's is really bad right now. As a BSN with no experience, you probably have a better chance of getting hired than an ADN RN with ten years of...

  2. Person-centered approach
    I will also add that there just isn't enough staff available to monitor all of these patients. I can recall many times when the MRDD patient was found sitting naked outside. The staff were busy...

  3. Person-centered approach
    I tend to agree with your take on the living environment for dementia patients. They are habitual wanderers, and have a tendency to get themselves into a lot of trouble. They have a tendency to act...

    If you do come across that article, please post it here. That sounds very interesting. I would like to know how they achieved that. James Collins teaches that dementia is a cognitive impairment...

  6. PCTs, Can I see your resume?
    Nursing clinicals are good experience for a prospective PCA/PCT. Biggest determining factor is probably what part of the country you live in. I live in central Ohio, and the local market is...

  7. PCTs, Can I see your resume?
    Good luck trying to get into the hospital. 6 months of experience is laughable to the HR in the hospital. They will immediately throw your resume away. Your best chance is to avoid HR completely...

  8. Working in a Nursing home
    It totally depends which facility you work at. Nursing homes are known for being awful places to work. Try to avoid working at privately-owned nursing facilities.

  9. How would a government shutdown affect jobs in a nursing home?
    The people who run my facility are idiots. This government shutdown doesn't sound too promising for me.

  10. How would a government shutdown affect jobs in a nursing home?
    With fears mounting about a possible government shutdown, how would it affect nursing homes? Since over 90% of residents in nursing homes are covered by medicare or medicaid, how would that affect...

  11. CNAS, what's it like at your nursing home/long term care facility?
    After working in a LTC facility and volunteering in a hospital, I must say that work in an acute setting is way more desirable. I have found that hospitals are way more prepared to deal with problem...

  14. Any risks of volunteering?
    You don't have to work in a hospital to work hospice. You can work at a nursing home. Nursing homes are basically long-term hospice. Many nurses might feel that working at a nursing home is below...

    I am a nursing student right now and I don't care whether I'll be called a nurse or not. However, I think the word "nurse" to a non-english speaker might seem a little confusing. For example, in...

  20. What is the least amount you would work for as a RN?
    Wow, I'm glad I'm going into nursing. Especially when accepting a job for anything less than $20/hr is considered an insult. I came out of school back in 2005 making $10/hr. This is with a degree...

    It sounds like you guys do way too much work for the CNA's. But I do know where you are coming from. When I first started work as an STNA, I would find people in old diapers (>12 hrs old), foley...

  24. Have you been accused of being more of a CNA, then a RN.
