    Hi there !! I just found out that you can't send a message until you have 15 post's. A billing service submits your hours to the state, so you will be paid.
    I submit hours myself, via the portal, and with direct deposit I get paid
    As far as forms...your best bet is to contact and join the professional homecare providers, that I had previously referred you to. If you plan on staying with PDN in WI. you will want to belong. There is a lot to know when
    you are new to this The link is on my earlier post on this thread.

    I am in WI as well and all the other nurses on my case use carbon copy progress notes. At this time I am using a generic non-carbon copy form, however, I guess I will make up a form and send it to Kinkos for carbon copy printing. ANOTHER tax deduction!

    I am also in Wisconsin and is interested in private duty nursing. I just received my NPI number and certification through Medicaid. I am so new to this area and really need to network with other PDN's. What is my next step in finding clients? and can someone please send me a copy of forms they use for documentation? I am also planning on joining Professional Homecare Providers. My email is Thanks so much!!

    A great resource/support group for private-duty nurses in the state of WI. is PHP (professional homecare providers association)
    It cost only $50.00 annually to join. You can call or email anytime with questions or concerns. And, they have an annual convention in the Fall, with CPR and vent re-certification classes also available (extra cost) of course. Welcome to PDN !!! I love it and wouldn't do anything else now Good luck !
    Great input! Do you know if this organization is national? I'm in Florida.

    I have two peds patients and one adult vent patient. My nursing notes forms for both are extremely similar. Do you still need something to look at? I'm willing to share what I use. What about forms for chart notes, i.e. medication records, hygiene, maintenance, vitals, I/O, etc?
