Great company to work for, many benefits to being self employed
LPN (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – November 20, 2016
I've been with company 15 yrs. I've had full time jobs and picked up hours and also used Nursefinders as my fulltime employment. Yes they do give pay raises, I started at 22-23 dollars per hr. and currently make 24-25 hr. Depends on where I work and how far you travel. I also have health benefits because I work 40 hrs a week. Like any job ots what you make of it. Love my bosses and office staff, very friendly and accomendating. Make your own schedule if you want to do other things besides work at the agency.
Working in home health care I make an appoint to present myself to a resident with a warm and uplifting greeting. Asking if I can first get or help them with anything before I start my normal daily habituals. Always making sure that while helping with daily functions that the resident is still given and feels independent. Some older people tend to get a little bent out of shape if you (unknowingly) treat them as if they are incapable of executing customary tasks aka treating like a child. The look on their face once they realize that they have accomplished something that they have worked so exhausting for is amazingly rewarding. And a big thank you is also great too.
Little pay, weekly hours are not guaranteed, can get extremely messy
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 21, 2016
I work in a contract job currently. I work with some of the best people ever. I have to say that the hardest part of my job is when on of the patients passes on. the most enjoyable is spending time with my patients. The management team is wonderful. I learn new things every day from the nurses and CNA that I work with from day to day. A typical work day is being on time, getting a good report from staff leaving and making sure all of my patients are taken care of and have everything that they need within close range.
Experience was enjoyable, the staff could not have been more professional.

I enjoyed working with Nursefinders because they found a position that fit my abilities. I enjoyed the assignment tremendously and was even asked to stay on for 2 additional months, because they liked my professionalism and friendliness with the staff.

I really loved this job it was the best being able to go from all different areas and experiencing new people and new process I didn't know before I worked there what I was heading myself into but I just did my best for all of the patients I had traveling to there homes. I had a great time traveling and meeting new people and try to always comfort there loved ones when things went for the worst. I was always there for them to talk to me or just not to be alone with out there loved one.
meeting new people daily and traveling
and they always for get from one day what happeded and some think minutes after it happened, so i will never work in a alzheimers/dementia unit again.
worked in a variety of health care settings. Felt i gain alot of experience and learned to be flexible. I was able to react and adjust to many different situation, Worked in inpatient and outpatient settings.
A typical day is hitting the floor running and being immediately immersed in the day to day operations of a facility and going with the flow. Each facility has it's own guidelines and policies of operation and management style. The facility usually fits in with the community around it as to culture, activities. My co-workers are usually friendly, and a great resource. I have the occasional person who resents my being there because I am an agency nurse. This is usually typical of any place I go whether contract or per diem. The hardest part of the job is learning where everything is located and different generic medications used by a facility. The most enjoyable is meeting new people and being able to go to new sites.
