I was offered a home health RN position yesterday. Since my experience had only been in acute care and education, I would like to have some input on the offer.
This is a weekend RN position, working primarily Saturday/Sunday/Monday. The supervisor told me that I would likely be doing 3-4 admits on Saturdays and Sundays and 1-2 daily visits. Monday is reserved as a "call the MD" and office day. I won't have my own caseload since it's a weekend only position. There is call Saturday and Sunday 5pm-8pm. The pay is $43,500 per year with yearly merit raises, excellent benefits (cheap too), and $0.47 per mile. The orientation is 6-8 weeks full time. They will have me go another month or so working part time hours before I'm released to the weekends.
I've done the weekend program in the past. It works well with me teaching clinicals 1-2 days per week.
