Requires mandatory overtime and doesn't appreciate nursing
LPN (Former Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – March 2, 2017
I loved my job until mandatory overtime became a daily occurrence. I worked night shift but pretty much every morning they were short LPNs so I would be stuck even though there would be 3-4 RNs coming into work, they just didn't feel that they should have to pass medications. You are not appreciated unless you have RN behind your name and there is no room for growth. Also, if you aren't an RN you might as well forget getting any type of help from the RN charge nurse on the unit. They won't help you get vitals or anything, you are on your own. Some mornings I would have 15 patients who needed vitals and would run back and forth getting vitals and giving meds. If you want to be in an environment where you're unappreciated and taken advantage of and have no home life or life outside of work, this is the place for you!
