Nursing Service Coordinator/Staff Nurse, Albuquerque, NM - July 21, 2014
ARCA is a non-profit organization that provides excellent services for people with developmental disabilities. I enjoyed working with both the staff and the individuals. I learned different ways to communicate with people with disabilities and ARCA provides training to help ensure the needs of the People are met. Many of the management have been with ARCA for 20-30 years plus. The hardest part of my job at ARCA was the Nursing shortage. Being a non-profit organization they can not pay what other organizations can pay Nurses. The positive side of a Nursing position at ARCA is the flexibility in the schedule when there are enough staff to work. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning and developing lasting relationships and trust with the individuals and their families.
