    Welcome Selena!! You didn't say what your background is, i.e. nursing wise. I'm an ER nurse. Love the place, love the pace.

    I put it into my profile, didn't think about that.
    I got my nursing license in 1994. I have worked 1 year in the hospital, one year home health, 6 years in LTC and 1+ years as an RN consultant.
    I like being on the flip side of LTC, but sometimes I sure do miss the nursing homes.

    Hello Selina
    Welcome to Geriatric nursing although in the Uk we call it working with older adults.
    I'm not with a nursing home or a unit specialising in the older adult but a stroke unit SOOOOOOOOOO most of our patients do fit into that category
    Here we have intergrated units whereby all adults are admitted. Does break up the slog though and it's even benificial to patients progress

    Again welcome, hope to read more

    Thank you. At least you can't get settled into one routine. Always excitement or something different.
