Maybe its no where near as bad as I think.Me and my friend have so much in common and she stresses how much she LOVES working in jail. Well, she actually works at Rikers, not sure if they are the same but I assume jail is jail... just like hospitals are hospitals.
- 0Jun 26, '11 by NurseLiteI worked for Armor for 3 years while they held our contract in Escambia County. I started off as a medical assistant on the night shift, and with their help and ecouragement (not to mention tuition reimbursement, not a lot, but it helped), I went back to school, while working, to get my LPN. The admin staff was wonderful with adjusting my schedule for class and clinicals.
They offer tons of education! They are also very proactive with making sure that the nurses are comfortable with their positions and offer extra training if need be. Their pay rates are very competitive, especially since we were located in an area that the cost of living had tripled, but wages had not.
