    Pros

    Intense training program, good work/ life balance. good benefits, enjoyed the patient care aspect and seeing that I made a difference in the community.

    Cons

    5am start time way too early in the morning and its a hustle to get through the day. The Dialysis machines are on the right hand side.. meaning you must be right handed to operate the machine Doing the same thing each day became very dull and boring.

    Advice to Management

    train new nurses and do not hire left handed people for this job

    Pros

    They promote internally. Large company enable relocating.

    Cons

    RNs are over extended and under supported. Clinics are often dirty due to company hiring the cheapest housekeeping services available. In region 6 there is high turn over of administration and clinical staff.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize what is happening on the ground in the actual clinics. Make the clinics well staffed, clean, stable environments so that excellent patient care can emerge.
