Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Louisburg, North Carolina – August 30, 2015
I work one to two shifts per week at Franklin as PRN. My co-workers are a great group of people who I have become close to. The majority of my peers have left due to management and career growth. Frranklin has lessened the inpatient beds available and currently do not have the specialists to admit patients.
RN, PCU, Outpatient and Wound Clinic (Former Employee) – Louisburg, NC – September 4, 2012
SDS is a small but busy department servicing anywhere from 5 to 25 patients daily. Staffing consisted of 1 FT nurse, 1 PT nurse and a cna. I was fortunate to be surrounded with good dependable co-workers. Though we were under the same manager, we operated in different departments. However, if it was extremely busy, I could call on them and they would readily assist me. My manager and I never saw eye to eye thus it was difficult to communicate with her unless it was general conversation and nothing going against the grain. I looked forwatd to meeting new patients daily and learning something new.
Even with the declining ratings for this hospital, I can happily say that I loved my job. I worked very hard, and climbed up the success ladder quickly. My direct supervisor was great, the new supervisor over her however was not. They show a lot of favoritism with certain employees, and they let go of the hardest working ones (sometimes). I believe even though my journey there was short, overall it's a good hospital to work for.
A typical day at work is an opportunity to meet and greet people from every part of life. That's what makes the place a great place to work. I love meeting with people and getting to know how people deal with life. Not only can I share my skills with people, I learn so much about how I can change my way of performing my job to improve what I do.
