Can home care help me love nursing again?

  1. 0 I have been working n the hospital for the last couple of years and at this point I can stand proud and say I dislike NURSING. It is nothing like I thought it would be. The stress involved is overbearing. I feel as if no pay in the world is worth it. And I regret going into the field of ( wish they had a nurse emoticon with a sad face, lol)

    Any after expressing myself to nurses with 25+ years of experience they suggested looking for another place of employment. Maybe it isn't nursing. I could just the Management/Facility I am employed at.

    I am cosidering Home Care. Any advice? Anyone work for VNS? AMERICARE? MJHS?? In any nursng positions such as a coordinator of care, field nurse, nurse consultant etc?

    How is it working for any of the facilities above?

    I can handle the good and the bad, lol

    Also can you suggest some good home care companies?

    have you thought about home health? You get to see up to eight patients a day (if it's a good agency) and work one on one for generally a 45 minute visit. It can include f/c, IV's, wound care, education etc. I worked home health for a few years and loved it. The driving was hard though, and sometimes I would feel overwhelmed if I had more then 8 patients a day.
    The paper work is rough but if you have good management skills after you learn the paperwork it's great. Also how about hospice?
