Interested in MDS, can anyone help?


Specializes in ER, Med Surg. ICU, Mgmt. Geri. Hme Care.

Hi Guys; I've been searching the web looking for MDS Coordinator positions in my area(NJ) All I could find was directed to experienced nurses (RN and LPN) I was wondering where should I get training. And also if an LPN could do that kind of work. (I'm an RN , though)

Thank you,

LPNs can do the MDS, but an RN has to sign off on it.

MDSs mean so much financially to most SNFs, it's hard to get a job without experience doing them. There are lots of training classes on line and in real life. There was another post which had many many urls for websites so I know they are out there. Good luck
