lpn in assisted living

  1. I don't see any specialty listed for assisted living nursing. It's fairly new and such a gray area of nursing I think it can be very informative. My first question in the area is does anyone have a job description for an LPN in assited living nursing??

    I don't have a job description for you, but I do want to mention that I think it varies from facility to facility.

    I applied at a beautiful new assisted living facility and found they didn't hire any licensed nurses because it was a minimum care facility, and they hired mostly care attendants (not even CNAs) to pass routine meds and help with house-keeping, so I think that if you did find a place that would hire you, the job description would vary depending on the level of assistance neeeded by residents.

    Good luck in your endeavor,
