Hello,

I am going to have my RN by the end of this year, I will have 4.5 years experience as an LPN mainly in dementia/LTC and some rehab. I am going to try to get into a hospital but with my associates I know it won't be the easiest, but I am definently interested in working 12 hour shifts overnight. Does anyone know of any LTC in CT that does 12 hour shifts? I live in New Haven area and would be willing to travel 30-40ish mins.

Thanks!

I don't know anything about Connecticut but thought I'd mention I've seen in Kansas in case in applies. I haven't seen any full LTC facilities that utilize 12 hour shifts but I have seen some where the MOST are 8 hour shifts but they'll have a separate wing/house/floor for Rapid Recovery/Transitional Care patients making that move from the hospital to a less aggressive care but might still need PT/OT, IV antibiotics, etc and those nurses will work 12 hour shifts on more of a hospital model. You might check and see if they do something similar at places near you.

Good luck on your search.

Since you want to work nights, I think you have a better chance of getting into a hospital than you think. Go ahead and apply, anyway. It seems like hospitals are always looking for people who want to work the off shifts.

I don't know enough about LTCs to give you a solid lead, but maybe figure out what LTCs are in your area, and comb through their listings to see what's posted.

Best of luck to you!
