Nursing Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Abilene, TXSeptember 20, 2014
City of Abilene has good benefits including vacation, sick leave and holidays. The pay is a little low for nurses, however it is offset with the Monday through Friday work week, no on-call, with week-ends and holidays off.
A typical day is hard to come by - every day is different with meetings, patient care if have staff call in sick, notating emails in regards to programs with updates or questions from the state - ordering supplies or approving supplies, updating policies, working on budget details, notes for staff meetings and inservices, especially if Quality Management Audits show a trend or pattern of deficiencies that need to be corrected with retraining of staff.
I work as part of the management team and we have monthly meetings to stay informed of any local changes or state changes.
I have oversight of all clinic activities that includes an overall staff of 20 team members (nurses and clerks).
The hardest part of the job is making sure everyone knows the correct information about our services and care and are providing this.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when the patient says thanks so much for all your care and attention and you have really helped me.
Pros
work monday thru friday - no weekends or holidays
Cons
making sure the staff have all the same information for servcies and care provided.

Provided for entry level experience in municipal court system
Deputy Court Clerk / Hearing Officer (Former Employee) –  Abilene, TXFebruary 16, 2012
Overall, my experience led to being more aware of legal standards where municipal law is concerned. The environment could have been more professional and the pay grade could have been higher to speak to the duties of the position.

Watch your back
Enforcement (Former Employee) –  Abilene, KSJanuary 22, 2014
This place is an OK place to work, but watch your back. . .everyone is in it for their own agenda. They are not there for the public as one would think in a municipality. Trust no one.
