I have never worked in a rehab, nor have I had a management role in nursing. I was in management for years before nursing. 

I feel comfortable taking a supervisor role, but I really don't know what to expect. 

Can anyone offer insight about this type of job? The fact that it is in a nursing home leaves me uncertain about the job specifics. 

Thank you in advance!

I ended up turning the job down, but I will try to answer your question. It's a bit broad. 

One thing that I would expect is they always treat patients with kindness. We all have bad days, but the people we care for should not know that we are having a bad day. 

I would expect my nurses to work as a team and let know if they are having a problem. I can get them help or would help myself. This makes the day better for everyone. If one person is struggling, I would expect others to help out. Everyone will have one of those days, and we can all work together to make it better. 

I would expect people to avoid using their phones for private use. They are great for looking things up, but should not be used to check in on social media, chat with friends or personal phone calls while working. 

These are the first things that come to mind. Do you have a specific question?
