Hello. I'm an LPN and I used to work as a field nurse doing home health/ hospice and those are some of the job duties that will be performed as a field nurse. When I first started I was on salary and we were paid for mileage. Then the nurses went to per visit and the mileage was a set rate per patient regardless how far you traveled. As a field nurse RN from what I saw on a daily basis b/c I was working under an RN they mostly did home visits including: admissions (SOC) resumptions, recertifications, discharges and a number of other things. They also performed supervised visits with the LPN and Cna. As you stated you will be performing assessments and any other skills services that are within your scope and the company's policy. I performed vp, vital signs, wound care, filled medi-planners, did 30 day progress notes to update md on patients status cause this kind of determined whether the pt would be D/C or recertified, called in refills, set up transportation for md visits, u/a's, wound vacs, and the list goes on. There are also other disciplines who may be in the home as well such as a PT, SW, dietician, OT, ST depending on the patients progress or acuity level! But the main thing besides communication with the doctor, contact the patient first to save yourself having a missed visit. Sorry so long but I enjoyed working as a field nurse and I hope you do also!
