I want to get out of LTC, because I am experiencing many of the same problems. I recently went from PRN at another facilty to full time at another. I totally regret it, and this facility is a focus facility. I am off of a three day orientation, and a hospice patient died during my first night. It is only me and another RN at night, with about four nursing assistants. I have thirty-five patients. I am so miserable, but I do not have anything else. Very few places are hiring, and I do not have the experience that hospitals want. I am starting to think that hospitals and LTC may not be for me. My main interest is in psychiatirc or public health. I hope you are able to find your niche in nursing. It is hard out there! Stay strong.
