NP home health/medicare visits position

  1. Hi all, I am still in NP school, but am dreaming of my future job. I will be a primary care Adult/Geron NP. The city I want to live in has tons of home health type positions for United Health Care and some home health companies for NPs to perform in home assessments for medicare pts.

    My sister is employed in this city in home health as a PT asst and says that the RNs have to do a tremendous amt of paper work in home health and are often up until 2am completing their paperwork and that she wouldn't recommend it.

    Anyone know any of the pros/cons of these types of jobs?
