I enjoyed every day as an adult education instructor. Sharing my nursing skills as an LPN in both a teaching and clinical environment.
LPN/PCA Instructor (Former Employee), East Hartford, CTOctober 24, 2013
Pros: great staff; sufficient salary; nice environment
Cons: insufficient hours (30hrs); expensive benefits
A typical day began with classroom teaching of several aspects that a Patient Care Associate (PCA or CNA) needs to perform as medical professionals. I taught Medical Terminology, Anatomy & Physiology, Home Care Techniques, Personal Development, Basic Math and English, Phlebotomy, EKG and Pharmacology, as well as CNA training and off-site clinical rotations. – more... I am also certified to teach CPR and BFA.
I loved my job and the co-workers were the best. We all worked well together as a team to help develop a great program and curriculum for a very diverse group of students.
I did not find my job hard, but sometimes the work had to go home with us to complete the tasks, such as grades.
The best part of my job was sharing my experiences as a nurse with the students. They were all so interested and they could get a better picture of what experiences may be in their future as a health care worker. – less

Terrible company to work for!
Former LPN Instructor (Former Employee), East HartfordDecember 5, 2012
Terrible company to work for and they treat their students terribly. They are unorganized with their clinical placements and they hire Instructors who want to teach but have never taught before and then do not give sufficient support to the new Instructors. It is no wonder that Stone has such a poor NCLEX pass rate.

Fun work place
Camp Counselor (Former Employee), Macon, GANovember 10, 2012
The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get to deal with different kids with different type of personalities. It's hard but it was worth it.
