I have been an LPN for 5 years. I worked for the first year as a night shift nurse in a hospital on med/surg unit (loved it)...then we moved and I had to leave that job. Hospitals where I live now do not hire LPNs, so I have been working the last 4 years in physicians office. It's nice to have evenings, weekends, and holidays off, but I do not enjoy my job. I recently applied for, interviewed for, and within a week of interview was offered a position in a nursing home. The position is night shift (7p-7a). The unit I will be on has 57 residents and 2 night shift nurses. Can anyone share any insight on what to expect, various duities for night shift nurse in nursing home, etc? Any cheat sheets that would be helpful? Any and all advice is welcome! Thanks!
