Hi, I've worked at a skilled nursing home for 4 years as a nurse(LPN to RN) and I just finally for my bachelors of nursing so I can transition to a hospital setting. I'm having a hard time getting into a hospital bc I don't have one year experience in a hospital or acute setting. I mostly work in the sub acute at the nursing home. It's hard I get 25-28 pts and I do all the vitals signs and blood sugars and I do sly of patient hands on care (cna work) and 95% of the time I don't take a break ... I got a call back from Kindred hospital but I'm not reading good things about them. But I'm thinking is a nursing home worse than kindred? If so... Maybe I can survive kindred hospital.??anyone have input on kindred Chicago north off melrose med surg unit?
