Well I accepted the positon. So here is what I found out. Training two weeks or longer if you need it. Benefits if you go full time are pretty great( I am PRN for now) Free ceu's and online training. They provide everything you need stethscope BP cuff and more. They also provide a tablet to chart on which I am learning to use right now.Mileage reimbursment. Bonuses for good documentation and if you stay a year and more. I really like this agency and hope to stay with them for a very long time.:nurse: They have made me feel like a nurse again.:w00t:

Well come end of March I will have been with Guardian for a year an still loving it:yeah:. I will have to take maternity leave in April an after I come back hoping to transfer to office that is a little closer to my home but I don't see myself leaving this agency anytime soon. They treat the employees great. I get oncall pay paid extra for holidays, mileage, paid for going to case conference. I can sit at home an do chart reviews an get paid for them. Plus benefits. Been doing home health since 2008 an this past year with Guardian has to be the best an happiest time I have ever had in home health.;)

Hi, I know this post is already more than 4 years ago, but I don't see any updates as to how GHP operates and handles nurses by this time. Does anyone can provide any update on this?

I have since left Guardian 5 years ago do to not being schedule enough patients. For them to be able to schedule me I was working out of 2 different offices in 2 different cities. They tried really hard an if I didn't have a family that depends on my check I would have stayed. I am making less as a state nurse but I know what I am making each month.
