High turnaround, low pay, good experience for a new grad.
RN (Current Employee), Orlando, FLOctober 1, 2014
Pros: it's a job.
Cons: low pay, no insurance, no vacation/sick time, no travel reimbursement.
Client locations are all over town. Travel miles and time are NOT reimbursed. No health insurance or vacation. No guarantee of hours either because everyone is hired per diem. One person to schedule all nurses and clients. Poor communication and always asking to work more, even on your one day off. LOW PAY!

All in all the job is nice because the kids make it worth it. But financially this job is not sustainable unless you have no kids, a second job, and someone else helping financially in the home.

Everyone is very nice, and they are good talkers. Almost too nice.

Terrible place to work, lies
lpn (Current Employee), williamsville nySeptember 10, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: no vacation time, very vague when the schedulers talk to
Currently looking for a new job. Orientation takes forever and pays terrible. Then when you finally work a case they will take days from you to give to someone else. Have been trying to train to new cases and I get the run around. But yet they are always hiring. Also met other nurses who have multiple cases but can't get anything. Run don't work here.

Terrible
RN/LPN (Former Employee), PhiladelphiaAugust 19, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: false advertizing of jobs
This co. falsely advertised jobs. I signed for RN/LPN positions in my local area, but even before getting to any case, realized that job description has been changed to location "anywhere".

After orientations that didn't even provide for a sliver of what is to be experienced, couldn't schedule initial orientation at all. Numerous calls e- mails to their scheduler were never returned. They have even sent letter stating that have quote "lots of nurses who wait for months for cases".

Office staff is rude, not helpful, when you call them and ask for something they openly tell you "I was on vacation last week and don't know.".
Do Not even think about joining them..

They do contract out to schools, which I did most of the time. In the home care setting it is pretty laid bac. The managers and supervisors are very nice and willing to hep, even with school projects.Unfortunatey most placements were LPN positions and pay.

FUN AT WORK!
LPN (Current Employee), Media, PAMay 25, 2014
Pros: team work!
Cons: taking by surprise
I ONE TIME HAD A DAY WHERE IT ALL STARTED BAD, WHERE A CLIENT, FOR NO APPARENT REASON, STARTED TO HIT ON ME, AND THROUGH MY EXPERTISE, AND TRAINING, I HANDLED IT PROFESSIONALLY; INVOLVING OTHER TEAM MEMBERS, TO DEESCALATE THE SITUATION.
IN THE END, CLIENT CALMED DOWN, AND APOLOGIZED FOR HIS ACTIONS, AND I MADE HIM TO NOT FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT.FROM THAT PROFESSIONAL INTERVENTION, WE GOT ALONG AND THINGS WENT WELL FOR THAT DAY.

Great for Supplementary Work
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Aurora, COMay 19, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling, fulfilling work
Cons: no paid time off or vacation, no insurance benefits, wages mildly lower than average
PSA Healthcare is a home health agency that places nurses in the homes of pediatric clients with a variety of needs. Hours and shifts are not guaranteed as a result but the work itself is extremely fulfilling. You are in the home of a child who is in need of your care, your love and your support. You become part of a family because you are such a vital person in their lives. Dependent upon your skill level you are expected to be able to work with a multitude of client difficulty levels from as basic as a child who is tube fed and semi independent to a totally dependent child breathing via a ventilator and fed via total parenteral nutrition. This job does require travel as clients can be scattered in a wide radius but you can dictate how far you are willing to travel. Hours vary according to the client needs and like any health care position holidays and weekends are usually required. Currently there is no insurance or paid time off as all nurses hired are considered PRN employees therefore this is a consideration to make. This type of work is definitely suited in that way for nurses who are looking to supplement their income or are able to function going without pay or benefits.

If you like being badgered by management, take this job.
LVN (Former Employee), Dallas branchMay 5, 2014
Pros: you get paid.
Cons: you pay dearly for it.
I got hired to take on a brand new case opening up in my area. I kept a good attitude through the death by power-point and monotony of the orientation. I passed the competency tests with flying colors even when covering more advanced subjects that didn't involve my case.

I was handed a poorly started case with a child fresh out of the NICU. The parents had a lot of questions which, thanks to my prior home-health knowledge, I was able to answer. The HQ gave me a lengthy tome of policies and patient notation guidelines to read over at my convenience. I was the ONLY nurse available to do coverage for the case, and so was aggressively badgered to work 80hrs a week despite my child care issues I had previously informed them about.

I was a medic for the airborne infantry in the U.S. Army. I was given all kinds of colorful names and told to do all kinds of tiresome and strenuous work at the beckoning and call of a sergeant with a serious case of sociopathy. Given that my superior had such an eloquent way of communicating, I was still treated with respect at the end of the day when the work was done.

PSA will fill your head with corporate lingo and insincere niceties until you want to vomit. What work you have done means nothing and will be treated as a footnote or dollar amount listed on their reports to be dismissed until that amount ceases to add to the bottom line.

The management at PSA is so focused on squeezing the money out of the client that they have little regard for the nurse's needs or the dynamics of the situation.

Seriously consider how much you value your independence and self-respect before venturing onward, my dear colleague.
