    I have been working at ProCare Therapy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly and efficient service by my contact, Though they are out of state, I received replies immediately to all my inquiries. Signing up with them was easy and timely, Completion of time cards is easy and payment of salary is always on time weekly. I would recommend them to any RN who was interested in being a contract RN.

    Cons

    Working as a contractor makes me miss out on most nurse education by the school district, the hourly salary is lower and I miss out on any bonuses ProCare, did, however, pay me back for my School Nurse college course and a state required inservice education I attended. I really appreciated that. The benefits are deducted from the salary which is already lower than comparable jobs in our area, so it is hard to take them

    Advice to Management

    1) Be more open in the contract on the language referring to, but not saying clearly, that there is a clause of not being able to work for an entity for a year after the contract ends. It appears to be a non-compete clause that is not clear.
    2) Add to the contract regarding payment for inservice education for nurses. The school district that I am working at has days of no school for students, but are 'data-days' for employees, None of us contractors can go to these. For example, today they are updating nurse information on diabetes, tube feedings, medications that can only be given by nurses (ie: seizures).

    Pros

    Better money than working directly for district but I can't think of any other pros trying to meet minimum word count.

    Cons

    Found a job through ProCare as a school based SLP. Job description said 23 students on the caseload. Moved all the way across the country. Found out on my first day that there were actually 83 students on caseload!! The administrators were honest to ProCare about this and my recruiter lied to me. Do not trust this company. Oh and they pay you about half of what they charge the school. Charged the rural school district $75/hr + a $5000 finder's fee and only paid me $39/ hr.

    I have been working at ProCare Therapy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chelsea is supportive, kind, fosters a relationship of openness and trust, organized, and clear with any communication needs that arise.

    Cons

    We are in different states. But, again, Chelsea promptly responds to emails so it is not a huge concern.

    Advice to Management

    Chelsea has made my transition to Procare Therapy seamless. I feel fortunate to be a part of the ProCare Therapy team.

    I have been working at ProCare Therapy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with ProCare Therapy as a Speech-Language Pathologist for approximately 1 year. Chelsea Serr is my agency contact at ProCare and was responsible for finding my current job placement. Not only is she a consummate professional, but she is an excellent listener and a strong advocate for preferred workplace conditions and benefits. For my current position, she displayed perseverance in her efforts to match my specific interests to an appropriate job placement in terms of geographic area, pay and client population. Additionally, Chelsea responds immediately to questions/concerns and if she does not have an answer will link me with the appropriate person(s). I appreciate her genuine interest in me as a person, her willingness to go the extra mile and her very positive and upbeat personality. Also, she is very easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. I would highly rate ProCare Therapy if only for the opportunity to work with Chelsea Serr.

    Cons

    I do feel the pay is slightly below some of the other positions I have been offered and additional monies for conference attendance and material purchases is very limited.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage ProCare to hire more individuals like Chelsea Serr and adjust salary and benefits to be more commensurate with a person's background and experience.

    I have been working at ProCare Therapy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working for this company! Not only did I get to relocate but they helped me along the way. My Pro Care representative always answers all my questions within a timely matter, not only do i feel as though my rep is professional but I would also consider her a friend. My experience with this company has been seamless.

    Cons

    Pro Care Therapy pays their employers hourly pay. Working at a high school I need to be aware that on vacations, hurricane days or other misc days that we have off from school, I do not receive a paycheck.
