  3. hello everyone, I am asking this in behalf of my friend. She is a new grad foreign grad nurse and recently had a license but have no previous professional experience. Aside from organization skills, physical assessment, wound care and IV insertion. Can anyone share some of the most common Nursing Procedures in nursing homes? The purpose of this thread is to give an overview of common nursing procedures and skills a newbie RN should anticipate and as we all know that LTC orientation period is very short. The answers of forum member would hopefully lessen every new nurse anxiety and let them study ahead these common nursing procedures in youtube or Nursing Books.

    LTC Proper Assessment Skills

    Hello everyone, I'm planning to work in LTC facility as my first job. What discourage me working in this field is my lack of confidence in performing proper physical assessment on Elderly residents. Does Physical Assessment skills dealing on LTC residents vary from those hospital-base patients ? If you know some tips on proper physical assessment among geriatric residents, please share some website links or past forum threads or YouTube links. Thanks a lot.
