Pros: health benefits, time off 403 k match
Cons: stressful environment, increased case load, lack of support or appreciation from supervisor
I learned much about mental health and how to work with severly mentally ill clts in nursing homes.
I did not receive much support or praise from my particular supervisor.
I enjoyed working with many of my co workers, but there were also a few co workers I did not care for.
spent day visiting with clts in nursing home and providing group therapy as well as doing progress notes, tx plans, etc on each clt.
hardest part of job not being able to spend as much time with clt
most enjoyable part working with clts as well as time with co workers
