Pros: flexibility for field nurses, great communication, very caring, very thorough training and making sure you are comfortable!
Cons: private duty- unpredictable environment, sometimes takes a while to find the right fit with a family
PSA Healthcare is a Great place to work! PSA is compassionate and caring and actually does go above and beyond for their nurses. If you look at the management team, at least in the Fayetteville office, they have all been in the field and are nurses and have worked with PSA for a LONG time. I really think that this says a lot about an agency. The Fayetteville location actually works with the nurses, cares about us, sends personal cards and helps us out when needed.
In response to "Loved my patient and family I worked with" review... I don't know of any job that allows employees to abuse the system as much as private duty nursing. I know lots of nurses that have family emergencies and call outs and they work with you. I know that one family emergency would not result in a termination with them, even if it were within your first 90 days of employment (like some places).
I know lots of times, families that we work with actually get tired of missed shifts and call the office to "fire" a nurse much quicker than the agency would take that nurse off the case. Unfortunately, I have found that sometimes, in those circumstances, that you do not get the truth from people, but one thing I can say, is this agency WILL be honest with you and keeps it real!
So, for any nurses who actually thought that this review helped, just remember, there are always 2 sides to the story.
So don't let someone, who we really don't know the full story on, ruin a chance for you to work somewhere where you are actually appreciated and thanked for what you- because I know lots of nurses at PSA that would have to disagree with this review.
