I have had no formal training at aHHA I have been working w for the last 4 months. I have been a nurse for the last 10 yrs, BSN. Did ER private duty, iv therapy. 4 yrs ago had a child and decided to take time off. Was extremely fearful no one would hire me but this agency did. I have been just plugging along and trying to research as much as possible. The RN I replaced was unabl e to stay to train me so the owner took me out on visits. Currently I am paid 35 for sup visits and 75 for comp. Assessment although recently he has stated he would like me to sign a W4. Anyways, is difficult to learn something when you don't know it. I am only staying there for some experience and then I will move forwatd. He has a temp license that exp in jan 2015 but is snedingin the forms for the state to come next wk!!! With Wi state whomever it is that will be visiting us. I am so scared. 2 wks Ago learned that I am the assistant director of nursing. I have been responsible for the comprehensive assessments for the PCW side of nursing but spend very little time in office except to enter cts ADL info into what I believe is the Long term care functional screen. And I also do the 60 day sup visits. the DON is the only other nurse. She does the skilled side of nursing care which I have been told I will be learning. The owner is always in the office but only pays an he here or there unless it's a mtg. I told him my concern.He says" do you know how you do your assessments do tou feell confident?" I said I dont know wjat I dont know.Asked if I could pls spend time in office reviewing P&Ps and to get inf. Control manual in order..can anyone tell me what I should do as far as how to negotiate w the owner and to find out more info ? I feel like he is trying to hide things from me in order to not pay me or does not value nurses. The DON is about to leave. She is nice enough to stay. But only works T&R. HE HAS TOLD ME TO READ THE WI FORWARD HEALTH WEB PAGE AND I will be fine. I am struggling enough just getting my time mngmt in order and figure out how to get around the city, chart according to standards. It is very part time but I am the Guardian for my mom who has a brain injury and always needs me to talk or has some new problem. Please share anything you feel is pertinent to this situation. I don't know many Home health nurses and feel like I should just know this.
