Their are 60 skilled, 60 long term,attend all meetings, make wound rounds, no staffing or MDS

So why would you think you would lose your license by taking on the responsibility of attending meetings and making wound rounds?

The number of residents isn't your problem. I suspect your problem is that you don't have a clear outline of what your job responsibilities will be. Until you really know the job expectations you can't possibly know if you can do the job.

Remember: you won't know what is REALLY required until you're on the job.

What they say at the pre-hire sessions often means very little. Be careful!
