Flexible work environment with great potential for professional development
Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 14, 2014
A typical day for me at this job entailed a lot of follow up calls to community health providers, updating clients' medical chart, managing client's medical chart in accordance to NYS/NYC regulations, seeing children for clinic-keeping them current medically, participating in family/team conferences (sometimes facilitated by ACS), training foster parents on relative health issues to maintain their qualification to keep their homes certified etc. I learned a lot in this position, mostly mental health studies & diagnosis, how to deal with children & families who have suffered some level of trauma, and being not only a nurse but an advocate for children and their families. Management could definitely have been better coordinated & supportive. My former co workers were the best! We really grew to be a family. We helped & supported each other through some of the toughest days, and encouraged each other. We made our department! The hardest part of the job was, aside from the no raise in over 5 years and the ever changing medical coverage & steadily increasing co payments would be the lack of support on the administration level. The most enjoyable part of the job aside from the awesome co workers I had the pleasure of working with for almost 4 years would have to be the children & the families I had worked with and impacted their lives and/or eased their situations helping anyway I could all the while, maintaining their dignity, at least I felt I did.
Flexibility, working independently, professional growth
Lack of support from administration
