Definitely I look at clinical skills. Do they know and feel comfortable and confident with the basics. With all the other stuff you'll be learning, most agencies will not be able to offer one-on-one training for basic catheter insertions, peripheral lab draws, picc line dressing changes, wound vacs. The more skills you've got down, the better.
Someone who is organized, good time management and yet, enough flexibility to adapt to scheduling changes and varying home environments and lots of travel (Up to 800 miles every 2 weeks). People that are too organized and too rigid don't survive very long in homecare.
Lastly, if you are thinking Home Care is "easier" its probably not going to be a good fit for you. There is a huge amount of detail.
If you can, ask the agencies you are interviewing if they can offer a day of observation. Our agency offers ride alongs where you can spend the day with an employee in the field before hiring on. Its not a super duper accurate representation of the life of a home care nurse, but it definitely offer you a mini look into a day in the life. I also encourage my staff to relay the good, bad and ugly about what its really like.
Good luck to you... Hope this helps a tad....
