I get to work and immediatly start cooking breakfast for all the children. Feed the ones who do not know how to feed themselves , wash dishes, clean kitchen , then follow up with circle time teaching the children there letters and colors. Then immediatly after cook lunch feed the ones who cannot feed themselves clean up wash dishes put children down – more... for nap. The hardest part of my job is witnessing the needs of the children ages ranging from 1-20 the most enjoyable part is knowing I have a impact on these children and can teach them something. – less

home health nurse and in the medical day facility (Former Employee), tampa, fl – October 9, 2012
Pros: the children
Cons: the pay is horrible. the managment is aweful.
Does not pay well. Can make more working in home health taking care of one patient compared to the amount of patients they have you care for. Managment is aweful. Worried more about bringing money in than they are about patient care.
Enjoyed working with disabled children, great homebound teacher.
Staff LPN (Former Employee), Daytona Beach, FL – October 2, 2012
Pros: holidays and weekends off.
Cons: kids who need speech therapy should be reffered out due to speech therapy not available at center.
Enjoyed working with disabled children and coworkers. However the observation of management is less than honorable.! The nurse patient ratio is not always state regulated and the manager is skillful to disguise it.
