I've worked in long-term nursing care as administrator, nurse, and everything in between for 35+ years. AMA!
Hi, reddit! I'm Jill Smoller a licensed Nursing Home Administrator in NY for 15 years. Prior to that I've worked as Director of Nursing, Nursing Supervisor, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Candy Striper!
Ask me anything about long-term care, short term rehabilitation, the nursing profession, stereotypes about the industry, or whatever you like.
EDIT Taking a quick break here at 1 pm. Keep these questions coming, they're great. I'll get back to answering very soon.
EDIT 2 Back! I'll be answering questions for at least a few more hours, so keep them coming.
EDIT 3 Well, it's been a really full day and I had a great time hearing from you all. I'm going to call it a day now. Sorry I couldn't get to every question, but if there are a lot more tonight or tomorrow I may dive back in and answer some more. Thank you all so much - Jill
