Registered Nurse (RN) in Chicago:
It is a family like atmosphere. I was really comfortable with the staff and families because they were just like me. Compensation was of the norm for this type of nursing. There is no micromanaging. It was a little hard to implement understanding of new and current policy training because of the status quo mentality of staff and management. This is a very good place to work.
Registered Nurse (RN) in Chester:
Rockingham VNA. I case manage up to 20 patients at a time. We see 6 patients per day. Managers are receptive to our concerns or suggestions. I love my patients. One thing I don't like is the documentation. It has taken me yrs to finally get my documentation done during working hrs. It takes disciple to do this as many put it off until later in the evening and that leads to poor work life balance. I have learned to prioritize the visits and what really needs to be documented.
