APN in home health?
- 0Jul 5, '12 by anh06005, MSN, RNI currently work in home health and do enjoy. I only have a few semesters left in my MSN program and then I will (hopefully) become an FNP (assuming I pass boards!). Do any of you have APNs working in your agency? What do they do? I definitely see a need but am not sure of the legalities and such. In my state an APN must have a physician contract type thing and home health orders must be written from an MD...not an APN. Just trying to see what might happen come graduation time!!
