Job Work/Life Balance
Love the veterans
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Chippewa Falls, WI – April 29, 2019
The veterans are the best to work with. But they are very short staffed. Pay isn't great, no weekend differential. Very inexperienced management. Paid time off is very good but unable to use due to staffing issues. Health insurance is expensive.
LPN - Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – King, WI – January 31, 2019
The WI Veteran's Home at King, WI gives exceptional care to it's population. Unfortunately, this comes at a cost to employees. Nursing employees are held to high standards and required to complete overtime often with less than an hours notice. It is disheartening to be told with 2 minutes left of shift that you have to miss your child's Christmas recital and stay an extra 8 hours. It is fulfilling work if you are able to handle the forced shifts.
