Is Being A Nurse in Assisted Living a Stressful Job?

Most nurses would agree that there is a certain level of stress in any field of nursing. Since most nurses are responsible for the care and treatment of patients, the stakes are usually high. While ICU and ER are top-ranked for high-pressure environments, assisted living nursing presents its own set of challenges. This is particularly relevant in the aftermath of COVID-19. The pandemic changed the landscape of residential care communities, making them a more challenging place to work in this current climate. 

Nursing Jobs In Assisted Living

Assisted living is designed for people who need help with some activities of daily living (ADLs), but are capable of doing many things independently. Assisted living residents usually live in their own apartments or in a facility with private (or semi-private) rooms and share communal spaces.

Since patients in assisted living don’t require as much round-the-clock care as nursing home or skilled facility residents, the stress of the job can often be managed appropriately. In assisted living communities, nurses do provide 24-hour supervision, so you can expect to work varying shifts and holidays. 

The nursing jobs in assisted living include registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and certified nursing assistants (CNAs). 

The range of responsibilities includes:

  • Personal Care
  • Medication Management 
  • Memory care
  • Exercise Therapy and Rehabilitation 
  • General Health and Wellness
