Interested in Private Duty Nursing but don't know where to begin

by Tennesseeliving Tennesseeliving (New) New

I have been a nurse for 5 years (all of it in a hospital setting). I have been thinking about getting out of the hospital and doing something different. Private duty nursing sounds like something I would be interested in. I would like to cut out the middle man and wanted to know if you can work independently or is it best to work for an agency?

Thanks for any info you can offer,

Search through some of the other posts/threads...and you should find the info you need. There are pros and cons either way - of doing PD independently or through an agency. Despite agency frustrations, I myself would not want to be a independent provider...
