pediatric home health/hospice nurse

  1. From any pediatric home health/hospice nurses: I would like to know what type education and training you would encourage to become a skilled pediatric and infant home health/hospice nurse. We are a rural area without any such nurses, and parents have to travel over any hour in any direction just to have feeding tubes reinserted, or assessments done. What do you suggest?

    I worked many years as a home health nurse in pedi, not hospice. Learned from other nurses how to insert g tubes and even trachs in a ltc facility for kids. Perhaps you could schedule time at the facility where the children now have to go and have someone there train a group of you?
