I am very much frustrated looking for a job right now. I have tons of bills line up that needs to pay. Also, I am planning on building my own family. My last plan is to obtain a business such as the Adult Residential Care home. From there I would hire CNAs to help me if I have 5 or more patients. What do you think guys? is this the right path to go? I just graduated May 2012 and passed nclex sept 2012. I have a lot of plan besides family. I also want to have my own house and be a good provider to my family. I just want to hear feedback if I am going to the right path. I am giving myself 5yrs for nursing, I feel like I want to go to business management and start a business venture.
Some questions for your consideration? Do you feel that you are qualified to administer full-time residential care while not having ever worked as a nurse?Who will you hire to assist you, since no one can care for 5 patients 24 hours daily, 7 days a week?
Who will cook the meals, clean the facility? Have you investigated what type of license/permit you might need to operate a residential facility?How will you obtain the money necessary to rent/purchase the site for the home, furnish and equip it, and hire the necessary staff?
