LTC Staff Development Coordinator Resources

Posted

Hello!

I was recently hired as a Staff Development Coordinator at a Long Term Care facility. After 4 years on working as a floor nurse and lasting 3 months as a nurse manager (I hated it) I decided to pursue my passion as an Educator. My question is does anyone know of any resources that I can use for lesson plans, guides, competencies? Are there any journals for nurse educators or Long term care that I can subscribe to? Even If I have to purchase these resources. The facility I work at hasn't had an educator for over a year so I'm essentially building the department back up from scratch. So far I'm loving the challenge though. Thank you!

Have you tried calling up similar institutions to see if there is an established group of LTC educators in your area? Sometimes you will find there is. Another place to look is at your state's Agency on Aging. (whatever it is called in your state). You may find pamphlets to put out that discuss aging or similar materials for families  to read.
