Setting SMART Goals

Setting too many goals could mean that your goals are scoped too low and are focused on tasks instead of results. This goal-setting method will help long-term care homes to set realistic goals for students and help measure performance.

When creating your goals, make sure that they are ‘SMART’ – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.

Student Orientation Package

A student placement in long-term care (LTC) is a great opportunity to learn and practice new skills, explore career opportunities, and build meaningful relationships.

While completing a placement at an LTC home, students contribute to the quality of life and well-being of residents. They are a valuable member of the team. This Student Orientation Package can be used by LTC homes to introduce students to information and resources to help prepare them for the experience.
