"Horrible working conditions."
Charge Nurse (LPN):
Pros: My patients and co-workers.

October 2015
"Ok."
Charge Nurse (LPN):
Pros: The residents. Being able to visit with them when I have time.
Cons: Not having enough time to spend the one on one time with them. Everything is so rush rush anymore with all this new technology. I feel it takes away from the actual human touch/care.
July 2016
"Fast paced, diverse work environment. Stressful at times."
Charge Nurse (LPN):
Pros: The residents and family members. The challenge of the job and pushing myself to learn and excel. I enjoy working with my co workers.
Cons: Feel under paid when I hear about what other nurses are making and the years ive been there. There is no bonus for not missing work. Can be a stressful when call offs and short staffed.

"How much paperwork there is."
Charge Nurse (LPN):
Speed comes with experience. Be safe, ask about what you don't know.
