I can only give my opinion. Yes and No. I was a CNA for two years while I attended nursing school
. As an RN you have more responsibility which I like and dislike. As the RN you are responsible for pretty much everything (at least I am when working nights). Sometimes, I miss the days when I could say "I'll get your Nurse". Then again, as the RN when I see that something needs to be done I can take charge and get it done!
Most nights I don't have time to have long talks with patients. Especially those 80 year old men/women whose spouse just died and they dont have any kids/family and their scared because the have end stage CHF,you get the point.
As the CNA I got so sick of always being called for bedpan duty while the RN isn't busy,but gossiping at the desk, because she thinks only aids are responsible for that!
I'm sure homecare is much different than inpatient care though.Good Luck!
