Well all I can say is I hope that you find the LTC facility of your dreams. I know SO many nurses that have job hopped and hopped and hopped over the years to only find out that one place may be slightly better thatn the other or the other place was actually better than the one they are in now. What is going on in LTC is pervasive, called corporate greed. Wouldnt we LTC nurses be better served to try to change the system rather than "RUN FOREST RUN"?
I believe the new one I find will be a better fit - at least I hope so. If not, I'm done with nursing.
I'm going to find that nice little job at Blockbuster Video or something.
I agree, at least in part, with some of what you say about nurses organizing - BUT I've been a member of a union, and saw union greed and politics exchanged for corporate.
You don't know me, and don't know the fights I tried to lead for the hospital for a bunch of apathetic nurses who wanted someone else to do the dirty work - while their jobs stayed nice and safe. Nope, I've fought my fights, done my battles, and I'm finished with it!
I argued and fought with the DON at the last LTCF that I just left, but it was useless - and altho the other nurses were in full agreement, they wouldn't step up and fight for themselves. I'm not going thru there, what I went thru at the hospital - I've had enough!
