psych home health question

  1. Is there a minimum number of years experience that medicare requires for a home health nurse to have in psych?? Is there a certain requirement to be able to hold a position as a strictly "psych/behavior home health nurse"?

    I'm pretty sure it's only 1 year. I had 5 years psych experience before I started home health, so I'm not positive. Your employer just sends Medicare a copy of your resume.

    Depending on your employer, you may only need one year. However I know of one HH agency that required you to be certified in psych (in Louisiana).
