Would you consider HHC to be a stable position? As the main insurance provider for our family, I am nervous about making a switch.... Of course change itself can make you nervous, but somewhere I got it in my head that a hospital or LTC would be considered more stable.
And the toll it takes on your car.. What do you do??! Do you save all mileage for repairs? If so, the GAS is coming directly out of the nurse's pocket...
I am a full time day shift ortho nurse in a smaller community hospital. We do have our own hospital HH services, but since I already work full time, I am sure that adding a per diem role would not be something the hospital would want to do. I would need to seek per diem from an outside agency- to see if I like it- and to gain some experience... It is hard to locate HH places!
After reading many many threads here, I have come to the conclusion that I would love the autonomy, the travel, the possibility of greater nurse-patient connections...
..... but I am so nervous to make that leap.
Any advice? Thanks everyone! : )
