Home Health Nursing??

  1. I'm looking into possibly going the home health route with my nursing career. Anyone who has done home health or is currently could you please share with me your thoughts, positive or negative. Do you enjoy home health? Whats a normal day/ week like for you? Thank you!

    I've been doing home health for just over 5 years. I don't do visits, though. I do pediatric private duty shifts. I wouldn't go back to hospital nursing for anything. It's awesome dealing with only 1 patient & family. The only thing I don't like (with my agencies) is that we still do paper charting. I'd much rather chart on computer.

    There are many threads and individual posts in the hh forum giving people's opinions of working in home health. Often you will see the statement that it is the best kept secret in nursing.
