Pico maternity clinic (unverified)
Good morning everyone, I’m fresh out of phlebotomy school. I’m having a hard time finding a job as a CPT1 without 1yr+ experience. I’m currently working to full time security jobs 1+ year, until I can switch over into the medical field.
Today I was told by my employer that they do not want a chain of command in our company, and they do not want to update job descriptions because they feel like that limits what people feel they can do in their position. This makes me feel like there are no clear lines when it comes to who does what and who is responsible for what. Is this common in a healthcare clinic or is this a major red flag for me?
Hello, am a recent graduate of biomedical engineering technology at centennial college and was looking to get into the field, so far I've been applying and have gotten no call backs yet. My goal is to work at a Biomedical engineering technology or go the route of Dialysis technician. I know it's difficult with no prior experience, but I would like to get my foot into healthcare. Any advice is appreciated
I got fired today. I was let go from my job as a optometrist technician. I joined the company 87 days ago, I was told about how it was a total revamp of the team. I worked a job meant for 3 people with LONG hours , they constantly said I did great , new employees that started 2 weeks ago and I have been having issues , our front desk person wanted a position change so I was forced into front desk. I expressed my frustration and was fired a few days later. Not sure what to think or feel

Exciting job, incredible patients, amazing teamApr 9, 2023 - Flight RNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I’ve been with Flying Angels for almost 1 year (many of their nurses have been flying with them since the beginning). This is probably the funnest job I’ve ever had. We get to provide amazing nursing care to patients all over the world! I love the flexibility in my schedule. I get to make myself available or unavailable. FA pays within 2-3 days of submitting my paperwork after a case. The flight coordinators are all amazing and work out every last detail for you so you can just focus on your patient. I’ve flown a few 2 nurse cases and have met some of the greatest people to adventure with. Our patient’s families are so grateful and kind. Bob made sure I had everything I need to be successful in this job and is always easily accessible by phone and email. I get to keep my miles! I could go on and on….I’ve been in healthcare since 2001 and I’ve been a nurse since 2006. I put my time in….mostly ER and ICU. I call this job my reward for all of those years in the hospital.
The only thing I get slightly frustrated about sometimes, is when I don’t have cases on my schedule yet and I can’t tell what’s coming down the pipeline, so it’s kind of like being on call which can be a challenge with teenagers at home….But in these situations, if something comes up in my personal life, I can hop on their app and make myself unavailable. So I literally can take myself “off call” anytime I want!! 😳 No problem at all!Continue reading
Thanks for the feedback!

NOT AS GREAT AS IT SOUNDS. UNDERPAIDNov 23, 2022 - Flight NurseRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Helping relocate a patient with a medical need.
UNDER PAID. You think u will see places but you will never have time to enjoy them. When u consider you are working nights and doing case review on your time off and the number of hours you are actually away with this job u will make more money working as a nurse in a hospital. Everything is pretty much stretched to make the job seem awesome. Hotels not always Hilton even when near. Transportation not always Limo service, food allowance Is very low as you won’t catch breakfast much at your hotel because you may be checking out prior to them serving it.Continue reading

I am sorry your very short time with us was not positive. I try to be transparent during all interviews that nurses can make more money working shifts in hospitals. Regards, Bob Bacheler, Managing Director

Honesty is the best policyAug 24, 2022 - RN Flight Nurse in New Freedom, PARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Teamwork, nurse satisfaction matters here, clear communication, and overall a wonderful company to work for. You get paid to travel the world, be an "angel" for a family in their time of need, and if you got a dream destination the team will make it happen when the opportunity arises (and schedule the mission so you got some time to explore the area if you wish). Your flight coordinator is your teammate and has your back in making your mission as smooth as possible.
Honestly cant think of any as all my concerns that arised were addressed. From getting me back early to make sure I'm not late for my date to getting paid. Bob makes sure his nurses are cared for and this leaves me happy cause my voice is heard (something I didn't feel as a nurse in the hospital).Continue reading

Best Job EverSep 28, 2021 - RN BSN Flight NurseRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
This job is the best job I’ve ever had, and I’ve been a RN for over 40 years. I love the travel, autonomy, and getting a patient from point A to point B. The families are grateful and appreciative for being able to bring their loved ones home. The owner , Bob is amazing and supportive. Karen, one of the Coordinators is so helpful and supportive.also. This is the best RN job ever! I’m so grateful to be working for this positive, supportive, awesome company. I have the job every RN dreams of!
I don’t have even one con I can think of. A nurse run company that treats their employees with respect, support and dignity, to me that’s amazing!Continue reading

Registered NurseOct 24, 2017 - Staff Registered Nurse Hospital Based in Boston, MARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I am a Registered Nurse and began working as a Flight Nurse for Flying Angels earlier this year, 2017. Over several decades I have worked in hospitals and for healthcare product manufacturers. I joined Flying Angels because they offer a unique and distinctly diverse approach to nursing and patient care which appealed to me. To date Flying Angels has provided me the opportunity to provide care for and return to their home several patients with need of Medical Escort to several US Cities as well as Pakistan and Australia. Flying Angels Management consistently has demonstrated to me their compassion and true concern with the care for Patients they Escort. I wholeheartedly recommend Flying Angels as the Premier Patient Medical Escort Service for transporting patients to a treatment facility or back to their home. My extensive years of experience working in the healthcare industry have given me the ability to accurately determined Flying Angels as a unique employer who provides a satisfying work environment for Registered Nurses. They care about their Flight Nurses and make them feel wanted and appreciated. I have always been devoted to providing the best possible care for any person in need of medical care and I am proud to be working as a Flight Nurse for Flying Angels who also share my devotion for exceptional patient care.
Flying Angels has several Flight Nurses, into the double digits. As such they rotate Flight Escorts through the Flight Nurses on availability which at times may result in only a few flights over a couple of months.Continue reading

Patient CentricJan 22, 2020 - Flight NurseRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Building relationships with those involved to personalize the engagement is paramount for a successful trip- unfortunately many companies don't stand behind that principle. Flying Angels stands out for their commitment to ensuring the highest level of experience for both the individual traveling as well as the family. Special details go into each unique arrangement from booking of flights, transportation arrangements and flight RN assigned. 24/7 support is provided by the coordinator from departure of the flight RN until they return home safely. Additionally, the leadership is committed to quality on all levels and wants open feedback to ensure continuous performance improvement. Overall, great company and team to work with.

HeavenlyFeb 26, 2017 - Flight NurseRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I've worked for a few different medical escort companies, and this one is by far the best. It is a FUN job with competitive pay, and truly knowledgeable management that cares about their patients AND their nurses. The owner and managers have done plenty of flying themselves, so they really do have a clear understanding of how to make a transport run smoothly. If you are scheduled to fly with a patient, the coordinator gives you timely updates on the status of your case- if you've done this kind of work you will appreciate how important this can be. Before you leave home you will have all the clinical information you need about your patient, and your flights and hotels have been booked. The lines of communication are open and ongoing, the importance of which cannot be overstated with this kind of work. With other companies I have found myself in some nightmare situations where I'm on the other side of the planet and can't find anyone at home base to even acknowledge me. This would never happen with Flying Angels, they take care of their contractors, making it so much easier to care for patients and so much less stressful to travel. Although you are usually alone when traveling with a patient, you never feel alone because you know the flight coordinator (management) has your back. They track you from the time you pick your patient up until the time you drop them off and are ALWAYS there to help with any travel or clinical issues.
There are cons that are inherent to the business, unpredictable schedules, sometimes needing to leave home with very little notice, being at the mercy of the airlines and the weather etc, but these are things that are true with any commercial flight nurse job. If these are things that would make the position unworkable for you, then you shouldn't even attempt it. I'm giving only 4 stars for work/life balance because this job throws your work/life balance off, that's just how it is. You need to have very understanding friends and family because your personal life will get tossed around for sure.Continue reading

Wish the pay were higher but the fun of the job more than makes up for it. Work can be a little sporadic at times. Tends to be feast or famine.Continue reading
