Long term care Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses provide services in nursing homes, assisted living residences, continuing care retirement communities, and home and community-based programs. Long-term care nurses offer bedside care, assess patient needs, and develop care plans. They also supervise and train staff.

Long-term care nurses use their skills to meet the complex clinical needs of their residents. Some people need long-term care or rehabilitative care after surgery or a major illness. Others need long-term care because they are frail, elderly, or have chronic health conditions that prevent them from being fully independent. Long-term care nurses understand the unique care needs of their residents and make a real difference in the lives of the elderly and disabled residents for whom they care.

To learn more about nursing and career opportunities in the long-term care setting, please visit the Massachusetts Extended Care Federation website, or call 1-800-CARE-FOR.
