Wounc Care Nurse
I love my coworkers.. they were the best. My schedule was out standing, and the pay was not the best
facility was old and they were in the process of building a new one.
Learn Spanish. It is extremely busy. 4 couples to 1 nurse. The patients are from many different cultures so sensitivity to those cultures is a must.
It is a lot of hard work but a rewarding job.
Great place to live, but you won't get paid enough to live there.
