Hi everyone. Glad to find a venue for information. I'm the only FT home health intermittent RN for a Children's Hospital in Akron, Ohio. I have a number of PRN's that fill in, but sometimes there availability isn't enough. The area I cover is about an hour radius from Akron. I can but as little as 60 miles to over 200 miles a day on my car. I make an hourly wage(which my travel time is covered in that) Money isn't to bad. It's all the charting in the evening that get to me. I've been in Pediatrics for 8 years (4 with intermittent and 4 doing private duty). I wouldn't change what I do. I love it. I'd like to hear from other pediatric home health nurses out there... Lois RN

What a rewarding experience Home Health Care sounds like. It is one area that I will be looking into when I graduate. What an inspiration you are to us.
