ADON vs PCU vs Clinical Liaison

Specialties LTC Directors


  • Specializes in PCU, Hospice, Psych, ICU, Case & Disease Mgmt.

Hello everyone,

I recently had some luck with my interviews, and got offered all 3 jobs. My background: Almost 5 years experience in SNF, Charge Nurse for Altz/Dementia Unit, Sub-Acute, 7 months Case Management experience. Recent RN bridge grad.

PCU position is in a large teaching hospital close to home, would be working fulltime nights 7p-7a, 5-6 patients MAX. (Tele/MS/Stepdown pts)

ADON position is at a 350 bed multi-facility, ALF,SNF,SLC. There is another ADON, and UM on every unit. SNF was the only one with 7 complaints in 2012 for wound care and skin assessments. Salaried position

The Clinical Liaison position is through the company I have been with all of my SNF career. I would be going out to local hospitals and marketing for our building, and making connections in order to get referals. Lower salaried position, and requires ONCALL & weekends if need be.

I am not asking for you guys to make the decision for me in any way, but I am asking for advice from people who are currently or who have been in one of these 3 positions, and the PROS/CONS.

I am currently 25 with no children/wife.

Thank You all in Advanced.
