Victoria order of nurses

VICTORIA ORDER NURSES; foundational organization, does its best to aid and assist all people of society.
Solid work base, security, hardest part of the job working with abusive fellow employees.

Clients are Great- Management is Abysmal
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  London, ON22 January 2018
I love my clients and the one on one care I get to provide them, but the lack of attention and respect from management is disheartening. The hours can be excessively long and management is always pushing for "more for less". I would like to stay at this job long term because I really believe in the work, but with the current management culture, this is unlikely.
Pros
One on one client care, paid travel
Cons
Long hours, lack of communication

No work Balance
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  London, ON22 December 2017
This company I would say turned out to be one of the worst I have ever worked for. No continuity of care, clients being added constantly to you by office staff. Almost impossible to get a vacation day. Changes in scheduling hours before you start your shift.
If you are looking to loose your nursing license then work here.
Pros
Medical benefits
Cons
Long hours

Education opportunities
Cons
Mandated OT

Nothing matters more to management then providing the best numbers to upper management. Clients are treated poorly at best, but those funding the program need to be given the right answers from the wrong information.

Homecare
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON18 April 2017
No perks, no befits, no security. Never sure if you are going to work that day or week. No guarantees, stressful when you have bills to pay. You get capped at a certain amount of money and only make more if there is a new contract. The job never changes and there is no advancement.
Pros
Only work days
Cons
No benefits, no advancement, no sick days
