I loved my job as a Community Registered Nurse with Blue Care, I had great managers in Brisbane's South Side, then I was offered a job at Elanora, there was a great team spirit but an awful manager, I believe she was sacked for bullying! Not soon enough in my experience with her! Otherwise I would still be working there.
Depends on how flexible you are and who you know, the culture of Blue Care today is towards casuals as they are easier to manipulate and they do not have to commit any type of loyalty as far as hours or time frames to them. You will get no hours one week, a few hours another and then won't have time to breath in yet another. No consistency unless you are privilaged or know someone.
It's even hard to get part time positions now.
Hours in Toowoomba could be anything from 3 to 10 hours.
Changes on day. Example you go to work thinking you have at least 7 hours end up with 4 or vice versa.
Don't get paid if a client cancels or rostering team make mistake by sending you when client in hospital or holiday etc. If they can't give you something else you sit around somewhere in community, unpaid, wasting time till next client on roster.
I believe the pay rate should be increased, long hours for nursing staff and more kilometre rate as most people didint have a company car
