My first day

  1. Today was my first day as a home health nurse.
    I only did the orientation thing but tomorrow I go out to see pts.
    I'm really looking forward to this new part of nursing.
    I'll be hanging out here a bit more these days.

    Enjoy your new job Russell! I was supposed to orient to my perdiem home health job Friday but they said they were to busy to do it. Hopefully by next week I can get in.

    Good Luck Rusty . I started Home Health a little over 3 years ago. Before that I had always worked in a hospital. Med/Surg , cardio. and then same day surg. I think I was beginning to burn out . I really like this job . Learn something new everyday and don't have to make myself go to work.

    Yeah, I'd appreciate a little "journalist type" report every day for a couple of weeks--your impressions. I've been thinking about giving it a try but don't have a clue what it entails.
    Good luck.

    Yes, do give us updates!! And you can also post it on the TYpical Day thread, so those who are thinking about HH can see what it is really about.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of HH Rusty. I think you will love it.

    I'm interested to see how things go for you. I also would like to read about your experiences. Always looking into other area's of nursing. Wishing you the best.

    I started HH five weeks ago and love-love-love it. I am temporarily off work for 8 - 10 weeks on medical leave. So share your stories!!
