Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – King, WI – May 18, 2017
Typical day includes assisting with daily activities and cares for the members. Examples would be assisting with bathing, feeding, exercise and transfers. Just like any any long-term nursing facility we have a wide range of care from those that are independent to those who are complete care. What I love most about King is they have multiple ways to aide with cares and transfers to make the job easier. They take employee health/injuries very seriously. Unlike other assisted living facilities you never need to cook, clean, pass medications or do laundry. Your prime focus is ONLY the member. You generally care from 3-16 people at a time, but if you have 16 most of them are independent and don't require as much attention.
Management generally does a great time keeping on top of things. I will be honest sometimes it can be very difficult to reach your ADON (assistant directer of nursing) or the DON (directer of nursing) but serious issues are resolved immediately.
Hardest part about the job is flexible schedule. Although you get 25 days of paid vacation right away if you are a student this is not applicable and hard to balance. They try their best to allow balance between work-personal life, but just like most careers in healthcare there is a nation wide shorting of staff.
Apply! Take a chance, you may love it!
Will pay and certify you to aquire your license. You get paid while in class as well.
Need more staff, short on PM shift so this results in forcing. We never work short, pro and con. Schedule is NOT flexible, but offer every other weekend. Weekends and holidays are not guaranteed.
