advantages to home health nursing?

  1. Anyone out there with experience or advice concerning home health? I'm an RN of one year and have been working on a very busy Med/ Surg unit. I love being a nurse and am proud of the care that I provide. Lately, I have been feeling overwhelmed and dread going to work. I am dissappointed with the demands of having too many high acuity patients. I wonder how many other nurses feel the way that I do. I want to devote more one-on-one time to my patients. Sometimes I feel like I'm on a treadmill, getting no where and doing constant damage control.
    I am interested in a home health job that opened up in my hospital system. But I have many questions. Anybody care to advise?
