I'm a nurse and this company does our scheduling. It is pretty convenient to be able to make your schedule at home using this companys website. It's nice not having to input your schedule at work. If something comes up, it is very easy to log into McKesson and edit your schedule availability.
There are a lot of short comings to McKesson web scheduling.
First off, their phone application is not very user friendly. You cannot input your schedule availability from your phone. The only thing we are able to use from the scheduling phone application is to see what days we are working. Even seeing the days working through the phone is very inconvenient. From the calendar view which shows all the days in the month, there is no indicator from the view to tell what days you are working, you have to manually click on the day for it to show you if you are scheduled to work on said day.
When the charge nurse is looking to see what nurses are working for upcoming days, they have to manually go into the web scheduler and look through every single nurse to see if they are working or not. It would make sense if you clicked on a day to see which nurses are on schedule, but McKesson does not have that feature, and again manually the charge nurse has to physically look through each nurse to see if they are scheduled or not. Errors are often made because staffing lists are so big that the charge nurse often miss to see whos working because they have to one by one go through the big list.
One other knack on McKesson is that their software is not compatible with all browsers, so depending on the computer and browser, one may not be able to login.
