Your just beginning to get organized as an RN and comfortable in that role.
In home care you are on your own in a patients home, with little backup in how to handle a situation. Paperwork is overwhelming to many experienced RNs. Average admision requires minimum of 20 pages documentation (due to OASIS form) , often 25 pages is usual.
Instead of leaving your hospital position, see if you can go perdiem in homecare to get your feet wet with doing followup or wound care visits, buddying with a FT homecare RN.
Homecare was very flexible for me with young kids. I only worked 3 days week when young, voluteered at school s lunch mom/nurse, helped out in classrooms one day a week. I could help in class from 8-10AM, then be on my way to see patients. Needed to fit in teacher visit, could see patients, meet with teacher 1PM, back out to finish case load or attand school event.
About every three weeks, I'd set aside Wednesday mornings just for physician calls and insurance updates (seemed best time to reach my docs). Because we needed to see average 25-30 visits per week, I might have seen 7-9 patients day before/after, instead of usual 5-6. Since I Case Managed a large number of Chronic care/ Recerted clients with wounds, foleys, trach's, IV's, I'd start my OASIS/ Plan of treatment/ insurance update forms for coming week---or be completing any late ones I missed ...in between phone calls. Of course those days plans could be shot to pieces if a client had a serious problem, needed STAT visit or new admit just HAD to be seen, but most of the time I was able to juggle my time.
Pay in my area was GREAT in 1980's, but now behind what hospitals are offering in Philly area. If you can fly by the seat of your pants, accept that you are in the patient's home and have to abide by THEIR RULES when you can come + what they will permit you to do, and are flexable as a rubber band, then homecare may be for you.
