Hello everyone I have been a lpn since 2005. First year after graduating I worked in LTC then I went into homecare and never left 13 years and counting... well I have been ready for change.I have applied to several ltc positions but everyone wants experience. I did sign up with a agency that sends you to different ltc facilities but I will just be thrown in with the wolves. my question is what’s the best way to get back into LTC facilities?

Have a great portfolio, re: resume, cover letter, diploma, license, BLS, professional letters of recommendation,  and any other industry certifications.  Build a LinkedIn profile or pay an expert to do it for you, and include a professional headshot — you’ll have employers asking you to interview.  Network, network, network!  Are you still in touch with people you graduated with, or managers you used to work for, old instructors?  Join associations and rub elbows with the people there.  At the very least, call talent acquisition at the places you’re interested in and ask to meet for an informational interview.  At this informational interview, you'll have the opportunity to develop a rapport and ask how one can position themselves to become a team member.  Best wishes!
