Hello everyone! I just need some encouragement. Right now I work nights in a busy NICU. I've been a nurse for two years and always wanted to work NICU. I now have a one year old and desperately want to have a day time job!! It;s hard to get on days where I work so thats not really an option for me. Plus, working 12 hr shifts during the day would make it where I only see my daughter for about 30 minutes, if at all, when I get off work (she's in bed by 8). I'm interviewing for a home health position and it looks very promising. The only thing is, I'm scared to make the jump lol I've never done home health but the hours are very appealing to me. I haven't done adult care since nursing school
so that makes me nervous! I'm super excited at the same time though, because I'm ready for a change. I feel like I'm getting bored in the NICU. I just need some nurses who have experience in home health to let me know it's nothing to be scared of lol And just curious what a typical day is like and if any of you have hospital and home health experience, which one allows more family time? I definitely want to have as much time with my family as possible. Thanks for any advice and encouragement!!!
