Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – April 16, 2014
My typical day in norweigan is doing my vitals, charting them on the computer, and assisting my patients. My co-workers are good people to work with. The hardest part of this job was the parking there. The most enjoyable part of the job is patient satisfaction.
Medical Assistant Volunteer (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – October 29, 2013
Pros: great professional experience
A typical day would be my assignment to a medical office. Perforn patient vitals and document the results in a chart. Meet and greet patients. Schedule patients appointment. Set up the exam room and check equipment and supplies.
My co-wokers are very pleasant and happy to serve patients. My co-workers and I work as a team to resolve office schedules, – more... for example when office staff are on vacation or ill. We will agree to a change in schedule to accomdate all patients that are scheduled.
The most enjoyable part of the job is patient satisfaction. – less
Terrible Place to work unless you have zero experience and do not care for shorted pay.
CNA (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – October 11, 2013
Pros: nursing staff
Cons: management, disorginization
This place was ridiculous. They have no concept of management or equality. They are lucky to not have already been shut down do to lawsuit, as there are numerous infractions and violations on a daily basis. They do not believe in supporting their employees, even though the employees give countless hours for them.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – November 23, 2012
Pros: learned a lot
Cons: extremely busy
This is where I first started working at a hospital at age 18. By working here I decided to become a nurse. I was trained as a nursing Assistant. I then went to WLH to work as a secretary from 1996-2000. I returned to Norwegian because they do take new grads. It was a difficult transition for the nurses because I was a nurse instead of a NA.
not the best work environment but its helping others
certified nursing asst (Former Employee), chicago – March 8, 2012
Pros: uplifting experiences
Cons: its hard to take any break without some backlash, understandably due to always being short staffed
At first there is a very nice open atmosphere, people get along and try to work with one another. However, this is only the case when there is sufficient staff. When they are short staffed as it is usually, its difficult to find a heloing hand.
In the beging when i first stared it was a nice hospital to work for when new Dierector of nuseing came if you was not getting fired nurses and cna were leaveing.their is no room for advacement their.
