Working in Long Term Care as a Nurse
NSN Shift Support Podcast
by Megan Weaver Culbertson, BSN, RN
7M ago
Before working in the hospital and home care, I was a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) working in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) on their rehab unit. My time in Long Term Care made me have so much respect and appreciation for all the staff- from nurses to CNAs to housekeepers! I learned so much from the amazing nurses I worked with and it helped make me into the nurse I am today. This episode I'm sharing what a typical day looked like along with the good and the bad of long term care.

CW: Suicide June is Men's Mental Health Month and today we are discussing this very important topic! Thanks to society, culture, and more- men may have a hard time seeking mental health treatment, expressing emotions, etc. One of the ways to lead to better mental healthcare for men is by having the hard conversations and creating safe and open spaces for me to share their experiences.  NSN Instagram: @nurses.supporting.nurses NSN Website: https://nursessupportingnurses.com ^Support Groups, Mentorship, Self Care Newsletter & More^ Join the Support Group: https://nursessupportingnurses ..read more
