Seasonal, intermittent job availability
Flu and Wellness RN (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 26, 2016
Flu season starts in Sept. and runs thru Nov. RN's/LVN's are required to do a minimum of 10 clinics, but can do as many as they choose. Assignments are made on a first come basis and are done independently on site at various work/employment sites. Supplies are provided by Sutter and are picked up at the office as needed.
Wellness-biometric clinics are minimal until late Spring; are done as groups of RN's, up to 6 at a site, and are coordinated by an employee of the Management team. Their availability increases dramatically in the Fall. Again, it is a first come basis. I learned to use equipment to perform lab tests from finger stick blood samples and to use other tools to determine health parameters. Education was provided to each participant as indicated. The management, and organization, of these many clinics was great, both in the office and in the field. All the nurses I worked with were friendly, supportive and willing to share information. The hardest parts of this job are that it is seasonal and very intense during that Fall time frame; some very early start times; some long distance travel, requiring even earlier times to get up.
I enjoyed meeting people, being able to give information to help them with better choices for a healthier life.
Ability to choose frequency of clinics, travel time and mileage compensation; working both independently and with others
Seasonal work schedule; very early AM hours.
