I currently work in a hospital on a med-surg unit. I have over a year of acute hospital experience and I'm now looking into private duty/home care positions. I really want to have time to spend with patients, educate them, along with performing the tasks associated with nursing care.
I am looking at companies like Bayada and PSA Healthcare. For anyone who works for one of these companies or a similar company, can you describe a typical shift to me? Typical patients you care for...adult or pediatric? Challenges of the position? Did you receive a proper orientation to be able to work autonomously on the job?
Any information you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!!!!
