    Day in the life of an LTC Nurse?

    Thank you so much for your reply :)

    Day in the life of an LTC Nurse?

    What is your typical shift like? How stressful would you say your job is? How physically demanding is it? I'm about to make the jump into LTC nursing and I've worked as a CNA in LTC for years, but I don't have much of an idea of how a shift runs as a nurse. Thanks in advance for any replies!

    Psych or LTC less Stressful?

    That's so strange. I had the exact opposite experience. I got a concussion, a sprained neck, and got cut with a bloody razor blade in psych. I worked for 7 years in LTC and the most I ever got was slapped on the arm by a dementia patient. I can deal with that.

    Psych or LTC less Stressful?

    The turnover where I work is pretty high too. I'm just sick of being assaulted at work

    Psych or LTC less Stressful?

    Which is less stressful? Why? I've worked in pediatric psych for a little more than a year now and I've been injured twice. I'm thinking of going to LTC so I would have less fight-or-flight stress. Does this sound like a good idea? I've worked in a lot of LTC places as a CNA, but never as a nurse

    LTC experience for NP school?

    Hi there, So I'm thinking about transitioning to LTC as an RN and I was wondering how that would affect my admission chances to an NP program (either FNP, AGNP, or PMHNP). Would the admissions people at a grad program look down on LTC experience? Thanks, Purple_Clover

    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.
