I was unaware of ADON and the pay scale exactly. 
 

I knew they had AdON and that an lvn can be one and the average pay is like 70k. Charge nurse is roughly 40k full time

 

that however to me is a huge difference for the same amount of education however that would be enough for me to survive on by myself. The 40K works however it cuts kinda slim. 
 

I am required to be in the program and provide direct patient care. Do any adon do any direct patient care? All I can find is online. I am hoping that once I start back I can use my associate degree in administration to make more money but I don’t know if a nursing home would pay more however the degree is in the same building and oversees some of the operation. I am not for sure how all of it works but I know there is an administration side and I’m just hoping I can make more money so I can have my rent a of car and go back to living in the extend stay.

ADON and DON in LTC is a supervisory position and I have never seen a monitoring contract where the participant was allowed to supervise other nurses.

KARE (KY) has 5 year Monitoring contracts. After 3 years, you can request a contract modification which allows a supervisory position. The KARE Case Manager requires a letter from each of the following: the participant, AA or NA  sponsor , and current supervisor. If all are supportive of the participant’s transition to  management role (and you are in compliance with ALL other aspects of the program), KARE will approve the contract change.
