This might sound crazy. I have been a nurse for 6 years and some days just feel burn't out. Sometimes I wish I could just be a CNA again, but still get my RN salary. I've had the idea to start an independent non-medical home care buisness. (Showering pt's, cooking, cleaning, errand running.) I would not have anyone working for me. I would have a lawyer write up a form basically stating that I am there only for these services and not to assess the pt medically. What do you think about this? How do you think this could work or do you think it's a crazy idea?

Why would she have to give up her RN license in nj you need an RN LICENSE to have A home health care company even for home health aides. I'm an RN AND I've been doing this for over 20 years . It's forums like this that inspired me to do my own consulting so I could assist nurses and non nurses in opening their businesses as to not get into trouble. I see alot of loaded questions . Please seek expert advice before opening because you definitely don't want trouble with your BONs or the Feds at state or federal level with compliance and billing .
There are slot of smaller laws that people misconstrue that gets them innocently in trouble.
Good luck fellow entrepreneur s!!
