  1. Does anyone out there do nursing home care as an RN? What area of the country and what pay do you receive and it is hourly or per pt?
    What hours are most often available and are you full or part-time?

    I work in the ambulatory setting in an oncology clinic and have day-to- day phone triage with our home care nursing staff. I work in Canada (and I assume you are nursing in the US). Unfortunately, the rate of nursing income is different then that of hospital nurses or clinic nurses. This is true from one province to another. Full-time and part-time nurses are paid a yearly wage. Casual nurses are paid per hour. Currently our nursing union is tring to negotiate pariety across the nursing spectrum.
