Pros: awsome orientation and introduction period
Cons: the pay
I have been trying to work for this company for a long time, and just recently was call for an position as a LPN charge nurse. And the orientation process was everything I was expecting it to be. It was the most informational orientation i've had since I was hired to work for Advocate Healthcare Systems, earlier in my career when LPN were utilized in Acute Care Hospitals. I was very pleased with the introduction process, the background checks and etc. It gave me hope that there are still companies out here that care about who they hire and the safety of the residents and patients they care for.
The Educator who taught the orientation class was amazing, she knew everything there was to know about the company, their mistakes and their currections, she inspired me and gave me hope, that their are healthcare companies out here that truely care about both the employees they hire and the residents. They feed us for the entire time we was in orientation, and she (the educator), didn't play with you, for example, if you had an appointment, or was late, you had to attend the next orientation. She was serious about us learning everything we needed to know about this company, before hitting the floors to take care of the residents.
I felt appreciated and wanted, and it made me very emotional, because i was seriuosly thinking of changing my career. Thanks to Kindred Transitional of Dyer for showing me their is hope, compassion, and dedication in long-term care. I feel ready to due what i love, care for people.
I plan on workig for this company for a long time, I feel I have found my place, to do what I love, and to grow.
