Nursing Assistant Student Extern (Former Employee), Tempe, AZ – November 3, 2014
Pros: satisfying patients
My week externship at Friendship Village was one I'll never forget. I enjoyed every part of it, from Hospice care to Alzheimer's care. I learned almost every basic CNA skill during my 40 hours at this nursing home. Every CNA was so helpful and gave great tips to being a better CNA. The hardest part of the job was having to leave after only a week of – more... working there. Everything I learned at Friendship Village as a CNA will stick with me forever. – less
Nursing Assistant Student Extern (Former Employee), Tempe, AZ – August 22, 2014
Pros: patients/residents and helpful aids
Cons: discouraging aids
This is where I did clinicals for school. It was a great place to learn and utilize the skills i had learned in school. The aids were very helpful and informative. The patients and residents were challenging but a great learning experience.

Pros: free lunches here and there
Cons: short lunch breaks, healthcare
Start out with no imgredients to make what is on production list. learned how to make alternate meals in place of missing ingredients. Poor management in the Dining Services Department. They ignore outragous horseplay affecting time on the arrival of resisdents meals. Management taking out personal issues on staff making the day much more rough than – more... it should be, making rediculous commands treating staff unprofessional. The hardest part of this job is when given a large work load not physically possible for one person to get done. If the full task was unfinished by the end of the work day the staff member was verbally punished for not being able to handle the work load.Co workers were very unpleasant and did not participate in team work. Most enjoyab;e part of this job was when management was away and we could be ourselves talk and carry on an enjoyable work day . – less
Caregiver (Current Employee), Kalamazoo, MI – July 7, 2014
I work with a diverse group of people. I learn how adjust to change easily. My co-workers are very supportive and my hardest part about working there is not to get too attached with residents living there. What makes me enjoy my job or feel motivated to go to work is learning something new everyday.
LPN (Former Employee), Kalamazoo, MI – May 18, 2014
Overall a good place to work. Can be stressful at times. There are two parts-an assisted living part and a nursing home part. I was in the nursing home part. Oversaw nightly care of residents, passed medications and took vitals.
