challenging but worthwhile
LPN/Staff Development Coordinator/QAPI Coordinator (Current Employee), Jeffersontown, KYDecember 7, 2014
Typical work day is busy. Different staff needs throughout the day; orientation, computer workings, assessing education needs, working with administration continuously, conduct and lead quality assurance performance improvement.

I learned how to approach and deal with different staff members according to culture and work ethics; including administration – more... and floor workers (dietary, nursing, environmental services).

hardest part of job is encouraging management as well as all floor staff to do what Corporate policy/procedure entails.

Getting people to do the things that they are required to do is the most enjoyable part of the job – less

Nursing Assistant Clinicals (Former Employee), El Paso, TXDecember 2, 2014
Completed my clinicals here for my certified nurse aide course with Anamarc College in El Paso, Texas. Here I practiced all the skills I learned in class and met some wonderful and beautiful residents with beautiful and interesting life stories. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and talking to the elderly, who I feel have so much wisdom – more... and life experience to learn from. – less

Pros: employee appreciation!
Cons: -
Great place to work with lots of lovely people! It's a not-for-profit organization so they have the ability to focus more on quality care rather than quantity of care.

An enjoyable day at work
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Selby, SDNovember 16, 2014
Work was like a second home. I enjoyed all the residents I worked with and they became like family to me. I would clock in and spend my day caring for anyone that needed help. When it was time to eat I would help bring all the residents to the dinning room, serve them their meal and for those who were unable to feed themselves I would assist them in – more... eating. I would help assist to bathroom and bathing. Change linen and undress and redress the residents. The other staff members were also like family, we were a team and would always help each other. – less

Poor work culture
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), DeLand, FLSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: wonderful residents, food is pretty good
Cons: management does not fulfill the company mission
I loved my job only because of the residents. Management was very unfriendly and hard to get along with. The facility is full of drama and gossip. I enjoyed my day only because I stayed to myself.

A comfortable environment
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Silverton, IDSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: free dinners on evening shift, some downtime during shift
Cons: not flexible with schedules concerning school etc...
A typical day at work included starting shift right after reports. Very short staffed so you were always kept busy. Co-workers were off and on, some were great team members others were not. Management was short-staffed so they were almost always behind schedule. Most enjoyable part of the job was the one on one spent with the residents.

High Standards
CNA (Former Employee), arizonaAugust 25, 2014
Pros: reasonable pay, work atmosphere
Cons: short staff at times
This was my first nursing home job as a CNA and I was thoroughly impressed with the high standards the facility held towards the residents and work ethics. The director of nursing and management were very professional and worked with you in everything you needed help with. The nursing staff I worked with were amazing. The only problem I found when I – more... started working for this company were some of the employees thinking they were better than you. Of course every company is going to have those kind of employees, but I never let it affect me. I was there to do what I loved to do to help assist the elderly and also to provide for my family. The hardest part of the job was making sure that everyone was safe. Usually there were only two CNA's out on the floor on NOC shift so it was very had to keep an eye on 13 to 20 residents. The most enjoyable part of my job was giving my all and time for the residents. It was a very rewarding feeling for me because I know I am there to help them at a time in their life when they need help the most. – less

Working in Nursing Home environment
CNA (Current Employee), Atwood, KSJuly 29, 2014
Pros: able to work any shift that works great with your at home schedule
Cons: short breaks
My day working on a 2200-0600 shift (currently) is we usually do chores which consist of changing out hand towels, vitals signs being taking, and new water pitchers taken in to residents room. We will occasionally be putting a few residents to bed. I have learned in the past 5 years that some shifts do not get along at all but team work is always in – more... the works no matter what shift you are on. My coworkers are always hard at work and usually keeping a close eye on what is new on residents. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the elderly passing for I have gotten attached to them as well as their families and it is so hard to see their families going through such a hard time. The most enjoyable part of my job is changing the lives of residents. Reassuring the residents that their lives are in excellent hands as I take care of them on a daily basis. – less

Hard work, good hours, low pay
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Kissimmee, FLJuly 28, 2014
Pros: good hours, fun caring supervisor
Cons: low pay, poor teamwork with other departments
Nursing staff made more of a mess than residents, issue was never addressed. Direct supervisor was caring and understanding. Usually short staffed due to people quitting because of low pay.
