Cons

    I have been working at Colorado Visiting Nurse Association full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am a 27 year employee and have loved my work at CVNA! I was able to craft my schedule in a way that worked to raise my daughter. I have worked with many caring, wonderful people through the years. I now manage an off site program. I feel totally supported by my immediate supervisor.

    Cons

    I think the RN's have a lot of responsibility to assess and meet the needs of the patient and the paperwork (on the computer) is cumbersome. It is challenging for RN's to oversee LPN's because of the paperwork so an LPN must find a willing RN to tag team with. LPN's are not able to do as much in home care as they do in the hospital.

    I worked at Colorado Visiting Nurse Association (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable second income for retirees, refresher RNs
    Pleasant work conditions, daytime hours, congenial clients and co-workers

    Cons

    Most of the year, the primary business is foot care. Nurses average 10 hours a week.
    The benefit of these chunks of free time in between clinics has disappeared over the last few years with the expectation of daily email, mandatory monthly phone calls or meetings.You never really feel like you get away from this job, because if a client calls about their appointment, it is up to the nurse to return the call-not office staff.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management seems unwilling to invest in technology or administrative assistants (some were recently let go) that would improve work conditions for the field staff. Charts and clinic schedules are still pen and paper. Nurses have been requesting tablets for some time.

    The Wellness Division of the CVNA provides immeasurable value to seniors with the 150 footcare clinics on the Front Range. The care of the feet can speak to the health of our patients. As you... More
