Registered Nurse (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – June 9, 2014
Critical care is an excellent are to work in. Shift work can be tough and so can the acuity of the patients but the education and lifelong learning is priceless. Critical care helps your management skills by being a shift leader and leader of code blues. Hardest part of the job is dealing with loss of patients and difficult family members.
demanding, ever changing role of providing patient centered care coordination
RN Care Coordinator (Former Employee), Rock Island, IL – February 17, 2014
Pros: great teamwork with bedside nursing staff
Cons: understaffed, high turn-over, poor orientation and continuing education, lack of managerial oversight, no feedback on utilization reviews

Pros: latest trauma management research and patient care standards
Cons: long shifts with frequent need to pull call being called in on off days due to staff call ins.
The position afforded the opportunity to enter the critical care environment first as a novice and develop into an expert. The learning environment superseded any monitory value given for the position.
Its good to work with a company like BMS as employees are satisfied in all ways.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – January 9, 2014
Critical Care was a brillant environment to exercise critical thinking, intensity all the while experiencing the rewards associated with rehabilitating someone back to care. It enabled a person to develop exceptional time management skills, strengthen critical thinking and exert teaching, compassion and people skills with the patient and family.

Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Plum Boro/ Pittsburgh, PA – May 21, 2013
Pros: gained clean room experience.
Cons: no benefits.
I am actually with Aerotek Scientific. They are a temp to hire/ contractual employer. I take the bus and the fact I could not keep the same hours as the pharmacy caused CCS to not renew my contract. The people there were very pleasant and worked well as a team. I learned the Rx Home software program and helped them to get there inventory under control – more... as well as reformatting the entire warehouse. I was also trained in new patient intake and ongoing patient management. I was also there when they changed to the BBraun Pinnacle TPN compounder. The hardest part of my job was having to get up at 4:30 am so that I could leave my house by 5:45 to take 3 buses and a 90 minutes commute one way. This brought me back home at 5:45 pm. Mid/late week got rather gruling; but, I really enjoyed my job so it was worth it. – less
Junior Dietician (Former Employee), Bangalore – March 6, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Typical Day would involve interacting with different types of in - patients and out - patients, though job stress was more the co-operative nature of all the staff would make the environment very suitable and work friendly.
I want to make every hospital stay as pleasant for the patient and family as possible.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Franklin, TN – October 17, 2012
Pros: feeling as though you have made a difference.
Cons: if the patient is terminal, it's hard to know what to say sometimes.
Very rewarding most of the time. I learn something new every day even though I have been an RN for 29 years. I honestly feel that if any nurse ever feels "she knows it all", then it is most definately time for her to quit and find another career. I love my patients and their family most of the time.
