private duty nursing


I'm interested in picking the brain of someone who does private duty nursing. Questions like, how did you set up your business; what is your criteria for accepting clients. Generally, how did you get going at it.

Believe it or not, I'm in an area where there isn't a nursing shortage. I've been out of the profession for some years, so I took a refresher course with a clinical component and I still can't find a job. I thought this might be a way for me to practice. Hope someone is out there who can help.
