I have only been working in nursing for a year and a half. All my experience is mostly in LTC and clinical. I work for an agency, drive 50 plus miles to work, make $18 an hour but spend most in gas ($1.75 gal.) I have been sent a wonderful opportunity working for $9.00 hour, full time, 12 hour shifts, three days a week and less that four blocks from my house. The thing is I am going into Geropsychiatry with pt's age 55 plus, with anything from Deppression, Alzheimers, Bi-Polar, and multiple personalty. I need advice, they will train me, but I need advice on how to approach this new position. They tell me there is a very high rate for injurys among staff, but it is all teamwork decisions, care, everything. There is 3-4 CNA's, 1-2 LPN's an RN and a physician. It is a 14 bed facility, locked, average is ten patients oh there is also an activities director so staff ratio is good. What advice, though can ease my tension into entering this new field?
