THE PURPOSE OF THIS
Welcome to Long-term Care is a simple short guide that provides information to the nurse in long-term care. It is in laymen terms and is a realistic approach so anyone from a nursing assistant to nurse director can put it into practice. What I've found throughout my career, is the lack of mentorship that companies provide to staff to assist in both personal and professional growth and development. Mentorship is so needed in the healthcare profession. This is such a small portion of what our role consists of as well as the day to day operation. I absolutely love what I do. I now mentor nursing assistants, nursing students, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses as well as nurse managers and nurse directors. You will be amazed how much of an impact you can have on someone. If I had a mentor throughout my career, I may have not made as many mistakes that I have and may have been further in my career as well. Although without mistakes, there is no growth. This was definitely an enjoyable experience for me. I will continue to put out information that is merely from my own experiences. As a nurse director, you must understand that nothing changes overnight, and you cannot do this by yourself. It takes a team approach in order to become successful and have good outcomes for your facility. Remember there is light at the end of the tunnel. Stay focused, hungry and humble and you will get there. Whatever you do, just don't give up...
