Hi. I'm brand new here. Noticed the questions about Brookdale Senior Living. I am a Health and Wellness Director at a 37-bed Sterling House and have worked for BSL for about 1 1/2 years. I love it. Yes, the work can be exhausting, but for the most part it is manageable. For anyone considering working for BSL, one word of advice: The most important factor related to whether you like your job or hate it is whether or not you get along with your ED. If you two can't get along, it will never work. You have to be a team and have each other's backs. If you haven't already been to Milwaukee for boot camp, you are in for a fabulous time. They will put you up in a really nice hotel, feed you good the whole time, and you will meet a lot of other brand new employees, both HWDs and RNCMs, who don't know a whole lot more than you do. If you are a brand new nurse just out of school, I would not recommend BSL to you. Ideally, you need to be a mature person who has some business office experience, med/surg experience, and nursing home experience. All of these skills and experiences will come into play working in the HWD position. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I won't give out my personal contact information or any details as to exactly where I work, but I will be glad to talk here. Good luck and I hope you all enjoy your time with BSL as much as I am.
