So I have 3 yrs of med/ surg float experience. I worked on different tele unit, neuro, tried ICU, floated to ER for pts in holding, floated to Eating disorder unit, radiation oncology, orthopedics, and some radiology experience. I just got floated all over the place.
I did most of this through the agency. Make a long story short I needed a job with benefits and floor nursing is not for me. Decided to try homecare, but I'm having doubts. They said the charting is INSANE! I'm suppose to work 8hrs a day and I'm wondering how's that possible with seeing 6 to 7 pts a day?
I'm at the end I the road. I'm pretty much done with the floor. So if this doesn't work out, I'm out of options as I live on the East Coast and jobs here are hard to find.
I'm starting on Monday. The educator said its going to take a yr for me to get comfortable with the charting. Yikes! Also, the weather is insane here. I'm not sure how this will pen out. I just want some feedback. I've seen the horror stories on here already.
I was offered 33/hr with benefits. Is that a good offer? Plus, 55 cents per mile. I also have 3 months of homecare experience.
Thanks Any Feedback is appreciated!
