Pros: no lunch so you leave 30 minutes earlier
Cons: macro management, hostile co workers, horrible schedule, unstable work schedules
Everything starts off great then after you find out that no one knows what they're doing and it's a learn as you go type of job.
Pay is low for an LPN but it is very little work compared to working in a long term care facility. Management is non existent. Prepare to have no life as you get stuck with a schedule that is best for them, no consideration for employee's personal life.
Its a very tight working environment with nurses who have been there for over 2 years & they have a cliche (yes grown women that have a cliche) which you are not and will never be apart of which is fine because if you're smart you're only there for the experience.
as a competent nurse you don't utilize any nursing skills. You basically collect urine and click a button to dispense methadone.
if worst comes to worst your supervisor will throw you under the bus, they will not stand up for you. so watch out.
if you are ready to retire this is the perfect job for you, if you're a younger or new nurse run for the hills
