    BTW- what is a visit? I can comprehend an intake, which I suppose an RN would do, would take some time. Is a visit a task, a part of an hour, a set time? Thanks.
    A regular skilled nursing visit usually takes 30-45 minutes, depending on what the needs of the patient may be.

    For a Start of Care, which is probably like your intake, it's anywhere from 45 min to almost 2 hours in the home, again depending on the patient.

    Salarly- I work full time (not per diem or per visit) I get $28 an hour for a set 40 hrs a week. I am expected to see an average of 5-6 pts a day, we also are responsible for the majority of all of our pts case coordination and home health aide and LPN supervision as well...its a lot. Also this is new grad salary

    Benefits- working for a small agency health insurance is offered but for a high price (i believe 400 a month) which i do not pay and get elsewhere. also offered vision and dental which i do use yet but will soon, i believe price is MUCH lower

    Perks- nothing really...its been discussed about being provided with tablets once we go electronic soon (thank god) but im not sure if that will come through. I get $0.40 per mile. drive a newer jeep compass and this covers gas prices but not much more (such oil changes or maintenence). generally i claim 200-500 miles per 2 week pay period (some of my visits are 18-30 miles apart and must be seen in that order... )

    What is a RV? Recert? Regular visit? How can an LVN do a Recert?

    I worked for an agency that paid per visit (no bennies except 0.52/mile). $120 SOC, $90 ROC, $80 Recert and $35 SNV. Apparently that was too much as the owner decided to have only LVNs do SNV to save money (@ $25 SNV). Today I interviewed with an agency that wants someone PRN to be on call every other weekend. Pay was $65.50 per OASIS, $33.50 SNV. I was shocked at the difference. I forgot to ask about pay for call.
