I am new to this, and I want to thank everyone in advance for reading my post.
I am a student and I live in Florida. My ultimate dream is to have my own home health business. I realize that I need TONS of experience as a nurse before even considering this, and I plan to do just that, but first I need some advice. I will graduate in May 2010 as a RN, and I am trying to figure out what would be the best area to gain experience and skills that I would use in my business one day. I would love to go into home health, but unfortunately they do not hire new nurses. I think I like ICU, but I want to do what ever would be best for what I plan to do.
My next question is...how would one start a business of that nature? I plan to do LOTS of homework over the next couple of years, so I will be very prepared. Any info would be appreciated. Oh...I should tell you, I would like to have a Medicare/Medicaid approved business. I would be the licensed RN that would go into the homes, and maybe I would employee a LPN and definitely mostly CNAs. Any info would be MOST welcomed. Thank you, for all your insight. I look forward to reading your replies.
