They are very tough on new nurses, but they do offer a lot of education. They have multiple training opportunities that offer CCE at no cost to the participant. They also offer tuition reimbursement if you pan on furthering your outside education.

you are rated for raises according to your performance which I feel is good, however, there are time that I feel you are not allow to voice your opinion without being reprimanded. There is no such thing as freedom of speech. If someone would to write a bad review and others happen to agree with it you get a call from HR. I have seen this happen many times. Employees afraid to speak up for fear of their jobs. They feel management does not have their back and they would be thrown under the bus in a second. For the good part they do offer tuition reimbursement and encourage growth.

Very short staffed with terrible nurse to patient ratios
Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – September 17, 2018
Great place to work but not enough staff. Nurses take up to 7 patients most of the time due to lacking staff. Tech partners are also short staffed, some units will only have 1 overnight or none at all.

My work experience at LVHN Home Care has been very beneficial to my growth as a RN. I continue to learn a lot everyday from patients, clinicians, and physicians. The knowledge that I have learned I use on a daily basis to care for my patients. Thank you LVHN Home Care for all that you do!

Typical workday is fast paced, difficult at times to balance patient care without sacrificing your own lunch/break or end up staying late. Management will ask your opinion but won't make changes off of suggestions. Can be full of educational opportunities if you look for them. Hardest part is completing all tasks for the patients in time allotted with minimal staffing. Most enjoyable part is caring for patients, making a difference in their lives, giving them the best care possible. Good co-workers who are knowledgable and willing to help when available.
Good heath care, flexible schedule/hours, many learning opportunities
Almost no breaks, stay late with little recognition
When I started there I met a great deal of good people.

Coder III (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – August 28, 2018
Health network is one of the best in the area and the organization is run well. There can be better communication between management and craft and more frequent. Hard to get quick answers with new management. Pay is really low for experienced coders.
Chemotherapy/ Biologic Infusion RN (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – August 23, 2018
Very proud current employee. Their education department is outstanding. They place a lot of merit in the education and ceritification of their nursing colleagues. Working for a Magnet institution improves patient safety, outcomes and holds nursing staff to a higher level of competency. There is a open culture of being able to question processes and information with your colleagues without the feeling of intimidation. Again, this is what makes LVHN a great place to work and have confidence when needing care for my family. LVHN offers a tremendous amount of support for our communities health and wellness.
pastoral care resident (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – August 15, 2018
What a nice place to work! The director provides full support to me, words of encouragement when I need. She understands my situation and tries her best to help me out. My supervisor has a pretty good reputation of educating CPE students well. Employees that I work with are friendly, respectful and kind.
Great place to work for 14 years. But they always have a hiring freeze in effect.
Critical Care Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – August 14, 2018
Work at LVH for 14 years while attending Physician Assistant school at the same time. Once I graduated, I have waited for two years for the hospital to raise the internal hiring freeze. They have not. Now forced to leave my vacation time and time in the network to find employment as an advanced practitioner.
