I am a home health nurse, and I love it. I've only been a nurse 5 years (went back to college at age 43, I'm now 50), did 2 years of med/surg/oncology in the hospital, and the rest of the time I have been doing home health. It is so much nicer, IMO, than being on the floor. You really have a more relaxed setting, spend a minimum of 30-40 minutes per patient, sometimes up to 3 hours if you are doing an admit. So, you really get to know them and they get to know you, and it's great!
I am an RN, but I think that most of the visits are the same as an LPN. Here, in Florida, only RNs can do admissions (which - count your blessings - are very lengthy and tons of paper work, usually takes about 3 hours to do it in the home) but in my agency, one admission counts as 2 visits. Generally what you do is go into the home, do vital signs, do an assessment (from head to toe), do whatever the skill is that is needed (wound care, cath change, the reason for which you are there), do some instruction on the disease or management (signs and symptoms of infection, stress management, diet, diabetic care, etc), and then you are on to the next patient.
If you are a real people person and enjoy getting to know people, you will probably love this job. Some people don't enjoy driving, but I don't mind it. My agency also pays for travel time and mileage so it definitely a plus.
However, usually agencies like to make sure you have had at least some clinical experience on med/surg or somewhere in the hospital because once you are out in the field, you are on your own! There is no one to ask advice from or how to do something. Assessment skills are very important in home care.
