Pros

You can make your own schedule (sometimes!)

Cons

Where to begin. Top to bottom. The upper administration doesn't seem to care about the nurses at all. It seems they are more focused on making money than keeping very good nurses. Nurses have to drive everywhere and NO they're not just scheduled from 6 am - 6 pm. If they want you to work past 6 pm all the way to 1 am they will make you do it without any compensation- no food, no drink, no gas money, no extra overtime. They require you to work 1 on call weekend a month. That means 3 days of free overtime! Think you get reimbursed for working 72 extra hours a week? Nope! It's for free.

Midlevel administration is just as blind to the needs of their nurses because they ignore you. When you say I'm tired they say so what you're "on call" from 6 am - 6 pm Mondays through Fridays. And on top of that you STILL have to chart on your own time. There is NO time to breathe in this company. Care to have a life? Sorry Passages comes first! Have plans for the evening? Sorry Passages comes first! Have a special day with your friends and family? Sorry Passages comes first!

You will drive and drive and drive on this job. The largest region is too large and needs to be split in half before the nurses collapse from being so tired. The patient population keeps growing yet the nurses leave and leave. They are short staffed and always will be short staffed until something changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your ears and eyes and listen. Help your nurses before anything else because they make your company. Without your nurses doing assessments and building relationships in the facilities you service you would be stagnant. Show them you appreciate them. Give them overtime. Compensate them for their weekend on calls. Give them more gas money. Show them you care about them now.

    Pros

    -Great patients and families...it's always a beautiful experience to build relationships between your patients and to get to know them...
    -They try to pay for gas...it's not enough but they try...

    Cons

    -The management...all the way from the top down it's absolutely horrible...the way they treat their nurses and the way they brush you off is degrading...they run you all over the place and they don't compensate you for sending you to places that are either too far for you, too dangerous for you, or both...bottom line is this isn't a good place for nurses...
    -The pay...it's petty to complain about pay but when your place of work runs you for over 60 hours every week nonstop and pays you very minimally for the work you do for them it's insulting...start as late as you can newcomers because you're working past 6 everyday with the amount of charting they require from you...
    -The charting...it's an ancient system...it's repetitive...it takes up your entire life...you sit at home from 4-10 charting and charting and charting the same thing over and over and over again...
    -The hours...they make you go out at ungodly hours to admit a patient or to do a CC without even a please or thank you...then they make you chart for at least 2 more hours on something you just charted in the SNF...you work at least 60 hours a week for very poor pay if you think about how much you work for this company and how stressful they make your life...
    -The management...I can't stress enough how horrible they are...they say go here...go there...do this...do that...no please and thank you...no asking if you have something else to do like oh say charting for them...or maybe you have a family to take care of...nurses are continuously unhappy and are constantly leaving because they're not respected and they're not paid enough to build this company to what it is and what it's become...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your nurses...they are the backbone of your company and you treat them poorly...stop lining your pockets with what your patients are paying you and start paying your nurses fairly or they'll keep coming and going as they please...don't send your nurses out without a please or thank you...it can go a long way...don't say go here and do this...say hey are you busy can you please admit this patient...update your charting system...your nurses are leaving because you take up their entire life...you ask them to do direct care then to come home and spend the rest of the day charting...we have children to feed and homes to take care of...the bosses...hire people who are capable and experienced in running a large healthcare company not people who just recently graduated and are fresh out of school...listen to your nurses, treat them with respect, and pay them fairly and you'll be able to keep more nurses than you could imagine...they take care of your patients and of your business...think of where you'd be without them...
