I have been an RN for 2 years and have not yet found a regular job. I have been "working" for a non-medical home health care agency for a 1.5 years now and they are not doing well. As I was looking for work, I figured I better contact them and make sure they still considered me an employee. Turns out, they still love me, and they'd love to give me some work, but they just aren't finding customers. I feel really bad for them. They just had their second kid and they are lucky if their business ends the month in the black. I have offered to help market, maybe RN BSN on my badge will pull a little weight with customers.
but I have NO idea what I'm doing. I am currently making a list of addresses to visit and see who I can talk to. here's a list of people I'm planning on targeting:
Dr. offices - not sure what kinds of MDs I should see.
Long term care insurance
out patient surgery - who gets geri/workman's comp clients?
residential homes (CCRC)
Professional organizations - where to case managers or PT/OT meet?
Re: finding addresses
Some of these have been easy - CCRC, nursing homes, insurance providers. google will usually provide a list of 20 address if you look up "CCRC [TOWN]"
but what about stuff like types of professionals, MD offices, or non-hospital surgical clinics? I feel like I would be just as efficient driving around looking at store fronts as using google to get a list of addresses!
Do you have experience with any offices that make non-medical HH referals? What needs do they need filled? How can I make their job easier?
