Please keep in mind that when you are in a patient home there are no other medical professionals around to assist and collaborate with. Of course, even when others are around, it doesnt mean they will help you. Basic assessment skills, driving and map skills, patience and acceptance of choices that patients make are essential. You will spend lots of time calling doctors and RNs with reports and documenting. You will work in the uncontrolled environment of a patient's home. It is imperative that newly licensed nurses in home care receive a thorough training program. In my area LPNs usualy work in doctor offices, LTC or home care. All areas of nursing have good and bad aspects. The trick is finding what works for your personality, temperment, and family obligations. Best wishes as you start your career.
