- We are seeking an experienced and self motivated long-term care
RN to join our growing team of nursing professionals! A long-term
care nurse works in a nursing home, rest home, skilled nursing
facility (SNF), or a convalescent home. Most of the patients they
will care for are elderly and are there because they can no longer
live at home safely. The resident may have ambulation difficulties
and need a walker or wheelchair to get around. Many have dementia
and are confused. The nurse will care for more residents than a
nurse working in a hospital. Sometimes a complete hall is assigned
to the nurse and most of her or his time is spent passing
medications. The nurse will push a medication (med) cart down the
hall from room to room, making sure medications are dispensed on
time. Overseeing nurses' aides and making sure the residents are
cared for in a compassionate manner is part of the job. The nurse
will also work with the therapy department in coordinating care.
Since the facility is the residents' home, the nurse will get to
know them well. If you're a long-term care nurse, apply now and see
what the buzz is all about!
