I'm trying to find what setting I do best in. Ive been a LPN for almost a year now working in long term care. I hate it. I hate the politics, and the fact that I dont get to spend anytime with the residents AT ALL. I only have time to admin. meds, treatments, and paperwork. If I try to spend anytime with the residents I get behind, go into over time, and get in trouble. I recently quit my job and am looking into doing home health full-time. I did home health before as an aide and loved it! The downfall with the agency I worked with was I didnt get a lot of hours and they we're just kind of wishy washy. My question is are there any full-time home health nurses out there that just dont do it as a side job? Do you get enough hours/ make enough money? I know the benefits are usually crappy and a lot of places dont compensate for gas. But, Im ok with that as long as I can have a job that Im happy with. Tell me what its like?
