Continuing Education Un-friendly, good benefits, but little room for growth
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Various locations – February 21, 2018
The main problem I had working for this company was that they start you as a "floater nurse" saying you are eventually placed permanently in an office, but almost two years later that never happened. Some people get placed a mile from their home and others get placed 30 miles from their home. There is not much room for advancement as a nurse. In fact, they are slowly transitioning towards MA's and LPN's at most, so if you are an RN, don't bother. Any problem within the practice always came back to the nurses. While you did have a few specific people (physicians, upper management) that did go to bat for you, the general culture of the practice is that it's always the Nurse's fault. The pay is honestly right up there with the best, and they offer really great benefits (lots of vacation, paid time off, insurance, etc) but if you are looking to move up in the company or expand on your skills, you have a long uphill road against you. They are also very rigid on scheduling, part time does not exist, and if you need time for school, they will sooner let you go and spend months finding someone, and investing time and energy training, than try to compromise and keep you on the team.
Great benefits, decent pay
No room for growth, workplace can be hostile at times.
