LPN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – New Jersey – September 14, 2016
The opportunity to work was there but they will cancel your shift on your way to a facility and then will try to relocate you so it was frustrating and stressful. Thats why im rating it a 3 star. Otherwise decent people.
CNA (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – April 2, 2015
I worked for towne a little over a year. It was the only placed that hired me dued to me just starting out as a CNA. The facility I worked at had various different units, and I gained a lot of experience. The co-workers seemed nice and we all worked together. The disadvantages of this job is no benefits meaning you will not get put into the union because the facilities aren't hiring and you will work and be under agency for as long as you choose to work there. In the meantime look for a better facility that pays more and give you benefits you will feel more appreciated of the work you do because you have to do everything in these facilities and towne nursing takes a lot of taxes out your check

Staff friendly. good pay. Always busy but worth it. U tell them the hours u want and u get exactly what u expected. but be ready to move from one nursing home to the other in order to complete your hours.
CNA (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 25, 2014
Towne Nursing was the best place to get my foot in the door as a CNA. After I got my certificate no one was willing to hire me because I didn't have any experience but Towne placed me at a great nursing home right away! I applied online and was contacted to schedule an interview. At my interview, I brought whatever documents were required and less than a week later I was told about orientation! I've worked with Towne for over a year now and look forward to advancing my career and going to school to become an LPN. Since Towne places LPNs as well, I'm planning on staying with them.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Great Neck, NY – November 28, 2014
I like working at Towne Nursing. It's a nice working environment. The majority of the co-workers are pleasant and make it easier to work with them. Of course you get a few who don't know anything about team work. The hardest part of the job is that you get a lot of patients and a few hours to take care of them. I feel that the patient do not get quality care. I enjoy talking to the patients who all have different personalities. I always look forward to provide care for them so i can enjoy the conversations.
