I'm working at a nursing home that's struggling with staffing issues, low morale, and what have you. I think in part to our administrator who makes all the decisions from my understanding. One of those decisions is to leave an entire unit unstaffed at night besides 1-2 cna's. Our old don was fed up and left and now the new don is a 2 year rn with like 2 years of experience in the nursing home... one of them as a nurse manager which was filled by a new grad Rn! How does this happen? These are positions that should require a minimum set of years of experience! It's like having a baby drive a car! Anyways, apparently the question was asked what can be done to boost morale and fix staffing without costing money and I can't think of anything! Literally every reasonable idea would cost some sort of money. Nursing seems to have taken a very odd turn in the past two years. Looking to kind of fall back into my old career as a public affairs specialist. Becoming frustrated with nurse staffing, budget constraints, low morale, low or decreasing compensation. Unrealistic expectations. Now I know why My clinical instructor for my bsn worked fulltime as a bartender and taught clinicals on the side lol.
