Enjoyed the population/clients, mmm...
LVN Nurse (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – February 10, 2018
I always worked alone! That was one of the issues for me. The morning shift always had two nurses, allowing them to complete their work, most of the time. Also, in the morning, there was an LVN and an RN doing the same jog I did alone in the evening. As you know, RN's get paid more but I was doing the exact same job!
There was a high turn around in staffing. Some nurses wouldn't even finish orientation. I really enjoyed the patients or residents and the job responsibility with them. It was difficult to maintain a good attitude all the time because there was lack of organization, not enough consistency and if anyone has heard the expression, "to many chiefs and not enough Indians, then you know what I mean. All in all I liked it just wish there had been better management and organization. I would go back.
