MDS nurse jobs are research-oriented positions. These nurses are employed by long-term care facilities and are responsible for conducting federally mandated assessments of residents.
The majority of an MDS nurse’s time is spent collecting data about residents. They conduct their own assessments, examining the physical and mental states of patients, and draw data from charts. This helps them to create better, more efficient healthcare plans for the residents of a facility. MDS nurses also deal with insurance companies, the facility’s finances and making sure the facility is in compliance with Medicaid and Medicare standards.
Qualifications for MDS nurse jobs vary. MDS nurses have a variety of backgrounds and may be RNs, LVNs or NPs. In most cases, nurses need clinical experience before becoming an MDS nurse. All MDS nurses need to be comfortable searching for conclusions from collected data. They need to have exceptional attention to detail, as their conclusions can impact the quality of care in a long-term care facility.
