It's fancy and it's in the pretty Texas Hill Country.

Do you know how good is the health clinic? I applied for a job there and I may take it.

Did you interview yet? If not, when you do ask a LOT of questions about the health office. A few I would recommend would be:

How many nurses/aides work in the health office?

What do the shifts look like? How many hours? How many health staff on at a time?

Is there overnight on call?

How many hours can I expect to work a week?

Is the camp peanut free? Nut aware? How are food allergies handled? Is there stock epi?

Is there a doctor on staff to do daily rounds?

What is the EMS response time? How close is the nearest hospital/urgent care? 

How many campers are there? How long do they stay?

What are the staff accommodations like? Are my meals provided? 

How am I paid? Weekly? Lump sum at the end?

I asked all this. Mainly they told me it was 2 nurse assistants and 2 nurses, the shifts are basically all day, but we take breaks when they let us. 

We are not on call but the nurses are, the only thing is if the child is sick and needs to go to the hospital, the nurse assistants take turns and take them

There's no doctor on staff but they take them to the doctor if needed since the doctor is in town

EMS and hospital are 18 mins away

They provide room and board, but the catch is the nurses have to share a huge room with 4 beds

Paid lump sum at the end.

 

I'm still a bit iffy on it, but I wanted to make sure.
