LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – November 21, 2017
From the time I was hired to the time I left the company, the staff made me feel like family. They always went above and beyond to get me the shift and place that I wanted to work. If ever I had a problem , they were always on my side backing me up ! Awsome people and awsome owner ! Sad to leave ! The health care industry just isn’t what it used to be, from a 23 yr nurse in the field at 49 yrs old and seeing how things have changed, I have chosen a different path.
Respiratory Therapist PRN (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – August 16, 2017
I was called about my availability for scheduled work assignments. Upon acceptance of a duty assignment, you are given the address and to whom you were to report to. You received a pay slip to be signed by the supervisor which could be faxed or brought in to receive next day pay.
Next day pay
Frequently staff members of a facility gave agency staff the least desirable assignment.
LPN (Former Employee) – Maryville, IL – August 13, 2017
Providing care to pediatric patients with vents and trachs. I got experience with several ventilators and tracheostomies. Forming bonds with the patient's was the most enjoyable part of this job. Sitting in one home for 8 to 9 hours a day was the hardest part.

Advantage Nursing Services is a fairly quiet place to work. Office environment allows for time to focus & comtemplate. The Staff is extremely helpful & approachable. Beautiful downtown Oak Park location. Close to public transportation, restaurants and shopping.
N/A (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 22, 2017
This place is horrible. They don't care about their employees at all. All they care about is bringing money into the agency. You have to suck up and kiss up to them to be on their good side. These people are terrible

Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Edwardsville, IL – December 14, 2016
I loved working for Advantage! They were probably one of my best employers! They work with school schedules. They have some of the best clients! Every client I had I got along with very well. The office workers are great as well, they try their best to keep you up to date with your clients the best they can!
LPN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – June 23, 2016
Great pay when there is work available. When it is slow.... no work equals no money. Nursing Agency that schedules shifts for you in many different settings. There are no guaranteed shifts, may be canceled up to 2 hours before scheduled shift. Good job as a second job for extra money.
LPN (Former Employee) – Berkeley, MO – March 5, 2015
I learned about trachs and g-tubes. This was my first job as a LPN. I did laundry, made breakfast and lunch made sure the meds were given. I didn't have a co-worker to work with just my relief. I needed more to do. There was a lot of down time. It was nice for awhile, but made for long days.
Learned how to work with a vent patient, Patient was always pleasant, Home was clean
No interaction with other adults, Always the same routine, Office personel always seemed to get days off messed up, vacation messed up
Homemaker/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Marion, IL – October 23, 2014
Each patient had a their own agenda for what they needed help with. I loved assisting them with all that I could when it came to cooking, cleaning, or assisting them with Appointments/bills. The hardest part of job is a patient getting sick or moving.
