Job security and all

  1. 0
    So I'm a home health nurse....well, I'm a manager in home health. And I'm going back to the floor. Now I know I'm capable of doing a good job and being an excellent nurse, but I have some trepidation being that I've been out of the acute setting for a while. But then I consider how sick some of my patients are an I think, I've not lost that many skills. But home health has had cuts all over the place and I just feel more secure going back to the hospital. Better benefits for my patient, better situation for my kids.....I just hope I'm right.

    No matter what you decide to do you are going to prosper. I do believe that the managers have more security than the field workers, but it's all about the company & team.

    I'm a manager now, so I feel relatively secure however I will say this....I've heard of 3 companies this year in our local area that are going under. So it aint good for the home health world with the medicare cuts.
