Private Duty Nursing

Private Duty Nursing is available for nurses who care for patients in their homes. Whether you do 4, 8, 12 hour shifts in a patient's home via an agency or if you self-contract, there are unique challenges. The unspoken rules of the household, dealing with dysfunctional families, and the environment of the home are all aspects of this job that must be dealt with by the private duty nurse.
