Assisted Living and Long Term Care

Assisted Living and Long Term Care

Pam Strayer | NursingLink

Gone are the days when long term care was just for those in their final years. Today’s shorter in-patient hospital stays put many patients – young or old – into 30-day stays in long term care facilities. Nurses who enjoy spending more than just a few days with patients in a hospital setting may find that long term care offers higher emotional rewards – and huge opportunities for growth.

Opportunities for nurses to move into management positions are growing quickly, as long term care is expected to more than double within the next decade.

Sample job description: “Provide leadership to care givers, develop plans of care for residents, meeting with resident families to communicate change in condition, and interface with support professionals to help maximize resident independence.”

    I think Psychiatric Nursing is the coolest nursing job. I work at a PACT Program which supports clt.'s with severe mental illness in the community. I work with a team of several LICSW's which specialize in many areas such as substance abuse, CBT, Family or independent therapy, stress reduction/ relaxation teaching, and vocational assistance. The team also has a peer specialist who is someone also diagnosed with a mental illness that relates and assists clt.'s with symptom management. I drive all day but enjoy meeting clt.'s in their homes or a setting they prefer, ie: coffee shop, movies, mall, or anywhere in the community. I don't do any hands on nursing (which I prefer), but I manage many clt.'s medications and coordinate/colaborate with all providers including, PCP, nutritionists, oncologists or any other doctors involved in clt.'s care. I have worked as a PACT nurse in two different programs since graduating with a BSN in 2004. While in school, I would tell classmates that I hate hospital's and they would laugh and say I was in the wrong field, They were wrong, and I have only worked in hospital's as per diem on Psychiatric units which are very different than medical units. I love my job and feel it is one of the coolest nursing jobs. How many jobs can you have that require you to go to the movies, get your nails done, or go rollerblading with clt.'s.
