Hi, Very interested in the MDS field. Have been a nurse for almost 3 years in LTC and home care. I see MDS positions posted but all require at least a year of experience. I have interviewed for a couple and neither wanted to hire me without any experience but have offered alternate positions. I do not want to go into a LTC facility and "work my way" to MDS. I am currently a unit manager at one and it's not working out.Will taking classes or trainings be helpful? I see some locally and online but do not know what is best or even if it's worth my money at this point. Any helpful advice?
