I want to move to the San Luis Obispo area over the summer. :) I've been looking into LPN jobs and have talked with a temp agency. Here in NJ I work in a LTC facility dealing mainly with trach/vent pts, most are non-responsive. I give total care to my pts, 5 to 8 a shift depending on staffing. I really like what I do. I would like to do something similar or hospice in CA but can't seem to find a facility. I don't think I would want to do home care in a new area. I've been told that CNA's mainly do this type of care in CA. Is this true? It seems like I will also be taking a huge pay cut maybe making as little as 32 a yr full time. Does anyone know of a facility that I could look into? I'm starting to reconsider moving.
