So much potential...but disappointing results
Nurse (Current Employee) – Carbondale, IL – April 1, 2018
This is a beautiful facility and has so much to offer, however, as with all corporately owned facilities, there is only so much you can do. They have family oriented holiday events which who knows how much they cost, but they run the shifts short consistently. Sure, they pay decently to the staff, but you always have to watch what you say around the management. It's like walking on eggshells most of the time and it forces you to be someone else while at work. Don't dare voice an opinion of how to make things better, because someone will just end up offended and suddenly you won't have a job anymore. But I digress, back to the job... It is mostly just passing pills, doing some dressing changes, and some charting. You do not develop any nursing skills besides completing a med pass in the allotted 3 hours. It does pay well, but to what benefit? If you're in school, just looking to pay some bills, this place is for you. But if you want to ever go on past long term care and be a functioning nurse, don't spend your time here.
12 hours shifts, decent pay, good coworkers
poor, cut throat management, no overtime, no ability to move up in company
