    Oregon Long Term Care Nursing

    Hey all, I'm moving to Oregon soon and I found this ratio chart: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.oregon.gov/DHS/PROVIDERS-PARTNERS/LICENSING/AdminAlerts/Nursing%2520Assistant%2520(NA)%2520Staff%2520Ratio%2520Chart.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjk7KvX5cHkAhWliOAKHfKUBj8QFjAAegQIBRAC&usg=AOvVaw0ts65CQ8rp8Z8F6T3C_Y1B So is this elucidating the minimum ratios for nursing assistants in long term care in Oregon? (ie all facilities must staff CNAs by this chart?) What other things should I know about long term care nursing in Oregon?

    LTC in Portland

    Hey peoples, I'm looking for information about working in Portland in LTC. Anything and everything. Best places to work. Wages. How difficult it is to get hired. I have 1 year of experience in psych and will have about 8 months of LTC under my belt by the time I move. Do you think I'll have any trouble finding a gig in Portland? Thanks!!

    Dangerous Patients

    Would you say that pediatric psych is more or less dangerous than adult psych? I was given a sprained neck and a concussion by a patient and I'm looking for options. This child was an ogre of a kid. I'm thinking maybe adults could be more predictable, or more will be behind bars as opposed to in a facility for aggression. Thoughts? TIA

    I'm finishing up Level 4 by the way, so feel free to ask questions more than just about Level 1, although I'm sure that's your most urgent interest

    I doubt they would care about the sole, and if the logos are small they won't care. I would suggest getting a stethoscope, etc. beforehand. They're going to tell you to get a cheap stethoscope beforehand (something you wouldn't mind losing). Don't go out and buy a Littman Cardiology III or some ****. I personally bought the Littmann Lightweight. Not terribly expensive, but good quality. Honestly, the biggest thing about it was the good seal of the earpieces. I went to the Florida Department of Health for everything. You're not going to find a cheaper place, esp. since I didn't have health insurance. Go on a day when you have nothing to do, because you're going to be waiting a while.

    Also, there is an instructor to avoid. I can't post it here, but you could PM me

    Get nonporous ones. You're going to need to be able to clean them. It's not part of the dress code, though. It's part of the dress code to wear socks that match the color of your shoes, but it's not enforced. Also, I don't believe you can wear blue shoes. It's either black or white. And for god's sake don't bring your shoes into your house. Hospitals are nasty places.

    SPC Nursing Program Spring 2017

    If you have a 4.0 you have nothing to worry about. Pass the drug test, DON'T be late on Castle Branch and you'll be set.

    SPC Nursing Program Spring 2017

    I've heard stories of people getting in with alternates around 15, but every cycle is going to be different. A few words of advice: read the ******* book, focus on acute interventions, and follow the rules (however stupid they are).

    Psych NP Health Assessment

    This may be a stupid question, or rather me asking a question that I already know the answer to and don't like it, but do psych NP programs require the same health assessment class as other NP programs? If so, it seems kind of pointless to have Psych NPs learn all this physical assessment stuff when none of it will be used in their practice. Or maybe I'm wrong about that last statement. I know the course codes are the same for the program I'm considering, but here I am asking anyway. Much thanks for your help with this :)
