I worked at Conemaugh Health System part-time
Educated at their school of nursing. Had a great reputation for good care in the past. Loved being a home health nurse
Home healthy agency was bought out by another company. Didn't want part time nurses. Felt like I was made to chose between my family and my job
Advice to Management
In a rural area such as ours. Use your experienced nurses. A lot of very experienced and skilled nurses left their job's leaving many positions unfilled. Its a shame after all the years of service to have to sacrifice you job for your family
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Conemaugh Health System (Ebensburg, PA) in December 2014.
Met with practice manager who managed several sites and was questioned why HR told her to interview me as the on line form did not adequately give room for experience or skills on the form.
Discussed her site where I used to work, discussed issues that we had "back in the day" and how they were overcome.
Talked about why giving great care is important and why you need to be a team player and not leave your co-workers stranded.
Talked about what the employees did in down time (read) and how they handled the stress of being a sole provider on the weekends.
Asked how long the orientation process usually took, how long to learn the scheduling and payment posting system, and ins and outs of the EMR.
Discussed rotations and met with other staff. Asked them what they liked best- everything was their answer and what they liked least- nothing was the answer.
Felt confident I had the skills and abilities they were looking for but did not get a call back or anything to tell me for weeks later they hired someone else.
