Independent, Love my job, 12 hour shifts
LPN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Englewood, CO – August 21, 2014
Day begins at 7am - 7pm, Love my dayshift position! 2 nurses on staff along with HSA (supervisor) so duties are shared but work as a team!! Intake of new inmates, calling physicians to obtain H&P, medication verifications, set up for med pass, office duties, scheduling off site appointments, obtaining vitals for continued assessment of possible detox, wound cares, accu checks for diabetics requiring insulin, assess emergencies if they arise. This is just a small list of things that occur on a daily basis, working in corrections no two days are ever the same so you have to be prepared for a fast pace day. Versatility is a must in this type of nursing. Most enjoyable part of the job I would say is the 12 hours shifts!
12 hours shifts, flexible, pto
overtime not available often
