Checking emails to review the report from our on call, so i can see what needs need to be met asap. Make appropriate phone calls to employees and clients. enter new employees into our computer programs. Interview new employees and administer drug test. Regular day to day stuff....
RN - Very disappointing experience - arrogant and quick to acuse staff - very poor assignment choice (nothing you could not find on your own), employers complain about paying high fees, low wages to RNs, no help for either RN or emplyer regarding background checks or travel expenses, etc.
steer clear of this agency - you can do better on your own
Gosh, that is what agency nursing is about, short notice. That is why we get paid more than regular staff to take the temp jobs at the last minute.

Job Title- Certified Nurses Assistant (Former Employee) – West Springfield, MA – April 12, 2012
This is a difficult,dirty, and yet rewarding job. Working as a nurse's aide gave me the chance to help make a difference in someone's life.I have worked in many nursing homes and a few hospitals. I have had to work with a variety of patients varying from a simple rehab patient to one with severe Alzheimer's Disease to paranoid schizophrenics in a psyche ward.I liked making a difference even in a small way. Unfortunately, the ugly reality of if it all is that many nursing homes are in deplorable condition, reek of urine, and are understaffed. As a result, the staff are overworked and underpaid.Daily life for a nursing home resident is very regimented and aide's are given a heavy workload to complete in a short amount of time which results in stress and poor quality of care; that's when the nursing home calls a staffing agency like Ready Nurse to help. The next company is also a staffing agency.
