PHS is a great company to work for. They really value their nursing staff and provide exceptional ongoing training and support. This is a great place to start your nursing career and a wonderful company to work with if you want to have 1 on 1 nursing experience with wonderful kiddos. Working at PHS was the most rewarding job I have every had. The culture is fun, but as a field nurse, you do not always get to experience that fun. Also as a field nurse you are working independently with very little interaction with coworkers. Working NOC shifts can be quite lonely and difficult at times. Some families are great and others are hard to work with, but the management at PHS strives to ensure that its a good fit and will work with employees when needed to move to new homes.
The pay is mediocre but you do get shift bonuses and holiday pay. If you are looking for a rewarding career this is a good place to be. If you are looking for high level nursing income, this probably isn't the place for you.
Fun environment, Great training, Management CARES
Low Average Pay, Lonely work setting, Homes can be difficult
Pediatric Home Service (PHS) is a great place to work! From a nurse's perspective, you will be challenged, supported, and rewarded whether you are a new grad, or you have many years of experience to offer the children and families served by this company. PHS offers phenomenal 24-hour support to their nurses working out in the patient homes in regards to any concerns including technical issues with equipment, or any nursing or respiratory concerns which can be addressed by Case Managers and Respiratory Therapists on staff. PHS handles many of the supply and equipment needs that arise in patient homes, and will go the extra mile to make sure that any immediate needs are addressed, even sending out deliveries same day if there is an urgent concern. While taking great care of the children, PHS also takes wonderful care of their employees. Plenty of free CEU opportunities and additional training on all equipment that you will encounter while working with your specific patients. There is plenty of room for personal growth and PHS takes pride in recognizing their employees for their extra effort in and out of office. Full benefits are offered and pay is competitive, including bonus opportunities.
MANY opportunities for training and growth, 24-hour support for nurses, A positive work environment, free CEU's for employees, full benefits, competitive pay, bonus opportunities, flexible schedules
