how can I start RN private duty in NY

  1. 0
    I am an RN in NY and have 1.5 year's experience in home care working for an agency. I've read alot of postings on this site talking about being medicaid and medicare certified if you want to go into private duty nursing. I am very much interested in finding out what I have to do to go into independent private duty nursing and wonder if I can start without being medicaid or medicare certified? I'm starting from square one, I do have an accountant and a financial advisor and would love to work with the elderly. I heard from agencies that provide home health aides that there is a great need for RN's to provide aide supervisions. I'd like to work independently but can I start here without any special certifications? Can anyone tell me where to start? There seems to be alot of information but I've been spinning my wheels for the last few hours on-line and don't seem to be getting anywhere (although I did find this site which has been full of information but haven't stumbled upon exactly what I'm looking for). Thank you. Any information would be much appreciated. I can't tell if I need anything more than a current license to do this. Any samples of client contracts, permission forms, and/or forms required to provide care, care plans established by MD's, etc.? Meanwhile, I'll just keep looking . . . .. Jan

    If you want to be an independent provider you have to sign up with Medicaid in order to get paid. Here is the website on how to get started www.eMedNY.org. It gives you step by step process on how to become a Medicaid provider. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

    Basically all you have to do to work private duty is to get someone to hire you with an agreed upon contract. You do not need to get certified unless you intend to pursue reimbursement from those sources that require certification. Getting paid by a private client simply involves them paying you and either party making the correct employment contributions to the tax authorities.

    I'm looking for private nurse job too, without being medicaid or medicare certified. I have no experience being in this field of nursing, but I'm currently working at hospital, skilled rehab and home care visiting. How can I start independently? seems it's hard to get a patient this time? Anyone?
