I am considering looking for a job in the hospital setting. I have been in LTC for about a year and I really think it is time for a change. I feel like there is no future in LTC for me at this time. I am going to be starting to fill out applications sometime in the next couple of months.I know that a lot of my nursing skills are rusty d/t working in the nursing home. I do not have much experience working in a hospital as an RN (only 5 months on a tele. unit). However, my assessment skills are excellant and I am comfortable with a lot of my basic nursing skills. Before I apply for a hospital position, I want to brush up on some of my nursing knowledge. Currently, I am studying ECG and some cardiac. What else do all of you suggest I brush up on? Also, I want this experience to go as smoothly as possible, so what areas do you suggest I apply for? I loved cardiac in school, but i am not sure if I am ready for the cardiac units at this time.
