I"m considering a change from Addiction/Pain Management to Neuro-Rehab.
First, I'm an LPN who spent the last 3.5 years in an outpatient clinic. However, I did the first 3 years in the world of inpatient psychiatric / Addiction. The duties of LPN are directing the floor and doing the med pass. The RN in charge handling the rest of the nursing duties (charting - Yeah!) I eventually moved up to earn my own 14-bed detox unit (ETOH and Opioid)
Now, the hospital chain my clinic is affiliated with their rehab hospital began hiring LPN's and with me wanting to go back to school for my RN I applied and was granted an interview.
Somewhat of a mistake on my part, the Rehab hospital had morphed from ortho (large joint replacement) to neuro rehab - stroke (confirmed by the DON during the interview). I was somewhat lost when the DON asked me if I had any questions.
I want to email and thank for the interview but also ask some semi-intelligent questions.
Any suggestion? I was thinking mainly about the care plan and LPN role in creating or continuing the care plan.
Treatment team? Does LPN sit on the treatment team as in the psychiatric hospital? Bad question?
Any questions to avoid?
Thanks in advance.
