PSA Healthcare in Florida - page 4

Hello everyone, I'm a new grad and as you all know, it's pretty hard to find a job without experience. I live in south Florida. I applied to PSA Healthcare because they hire new grads and offer training. I've heard good and... Read More

    I enjoyed the "assessment center" also. I do think that part of the "assessment" is not just your skill in the return demonstration, but also your mobility. In the eval where I went we had to put the demo dummy on the floor to administer CPR. One of our fellow interviewees was a heavy woman who had a bit of trouble with getting up. I would imagine this would cue the agency as to what type of client to assign you to. You probably would only take clients that use lifts exclusively as lifting children would likely be dangerous if you have trouble getting up from the floor by yourself.

    Did many of you get hired at the Assessment Center? Thanks! And may i asked what you tackled at the assessment day?

    I went to the assessment center today. We went over CPR and mickey buttons. It was pretty low-key, but the lady leading it was definitely watching to see if each applicant would be a good fit for the company. There was also a pretty easy test, including simple dosage calculation.

    YI I agree I was a new grad when I started PSA in Florida sure the pay was not wonderful. but after a couple of interviews I've discovered that even the nursing homes. and hospitals are paying about the same. I think I got 50 cents more in a rehab facility. which train me to do nothing but expected me to do everything it was awful.
    I appreciate and have so much respect for PSA hiring me as a new grad when no one else wanted to take the chance. not just hire me and expect for me to do a job knowing that I was a new grad but also trained me well there was no need to be nervous because someone was always available to help with training. even the families were super super cool. as with any company you're going to have your issues. there is no perfect place to work. no matter where you work there's going to be problems either with pay with scheduling or just supervisors. if I had an issue arise with PSA they were very prompt to take care of it. I have since moved on but I certainly appreciate my roots from PSA and I recommend anyone who is the new nurse try psa. like she said 16 is better than 0. team PSA for life.

    I worked at PSA back in 2010 as a new grad. I loved my patients! Just didn't really like working the home health setting.
