Should I go into home health?

  1. I have been in acute rehab for a year. I love teaching my patients, but don't love the constant juggling of patients and the constant re-prioritizing of care that goes with it. I have always thought I would like home health for these reasons, but unsure if a year's experience will be enough. I'm sure there's some variation, but typically what kind of care do you provide to adult patients as their home health nurse? If the paperwork is as bad as people say, as a Prn rn, can I opt for one or two patients per week and still have a life outside work? I guess what I'm asking is, on average, about how much time does paperwork take per patient...I've got a family and intend for a position that will supplement my husband's income. Thanks.
