    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Association Omaha full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good culture, feels like community. sense of purpose with work to reach out and be the best at providing wide range of home care services often to those on the marginal end. management tries hard to provide reasonable compensation but struggle due to non profit status

    Cons

    no benefits for continuing education. work tends to eclipse rest of life. hard to make clean break from work it always follows you.

    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Association Omaha full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is rewarding, you truly make a difference every day.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive, the benefits are among the worst I have ever heard of, FMLA is unpaid, you work out in good or bad weather without our any type of hazard pay, lots of wear and tear on your personal care. The cases you work with are indeed in need of your help but it’s hard to leave you work at the office.

    Advice to Management

    Concerning how much these amazing nurses give up to provide amazing care for their patients and rather than always asking for donations, give them a bonus, a raise, better insurance, hazard compensation for working in bad weather condition and the wear and tear on the cars. Without them you don’t have the VNA that everyone looks up to, take care of you employees, they could find another nursing job in one day in Omaha that has more to over. The VNA nurse have big hearts and sacrifice a lot to do the best thing for the people in their community.

    Pros

    The clients were the only positive thing about working for VNA

    Cons

    I would not get paid on time or the full amount. It was about every pay period I would have to call and ask about something they tried to cheat me out of.

    Pros

    You get great hours. Te company always and i mean always have hours. You make great bonds with your patients.

    Cons

    They are very unprepared with the work, many patients are very rude. Most patients live with multiple family members so you have very little working space to do what you need to do with your patient. They dont really give you a voice, whatever the patient say, gose.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is, treat your employees with respect, give them a voice. Because many times the patent could be lying.

    Sometimes the driving for oneday could be over 100 miles a day, or the plan of care is notvery clear so the visit is a total loss withoutthe proper documentation, amd god communication .

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to have the last person who visits update the chart with what was completed on plan of care amd what still needs done.

    Pros

    Good benefits, you will find a location near you, several employment opportunities available all the time.

    Cons

    Poor organizational skills, for some positions the pay is low, management can be unrealistic sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Definitely this company would benefit from several courses or education about costumer service. Also the clinic is understaffed all the time, we need more staff for several departments. A little bit more of fresh ideas among the VP's will be great.
