    Any Psych Home Health Nurses???

    Just wondering if there are any of you on here who are Psych Home Health RN's... I am looking into the field. Job interview in a few days... I haven't worked in home health- only in the hospital setting- ever, so this will be a BIG change. Experiences anyone??? Thx! :)

    Thanks Dave!
  3. Hi All, I am new to this site (well, kinda)... I wanted to post a question, but first, a lil of my background: I've been a R.N. for 6 years- worked in surgery, emergency room, private practice (for a research grant project thru the state), & have been working psych for the past 4 years. I have finally decided to make a change from the hospital setting due to all the ridiculosity (causing major burn- out)... have had nurse friends try to sell me on home health for a while- but I absolutely LOVED the hospice rotation in nursing school. I have to admit, a lot of the draw to this field DOES have to do with a more 'regular' schedule. I know the word 'normal' is relative, but I have worked the ol hospital schedules- all shifts- every other weekend, holidays, blah blah blah, & the like. Honestly, I don't think I will even mind the having to be on call... You know I could go on & on & on about how hospital nursing sucks... lol I was just hoping for other nurses thoughts on making the change- from those who have been there especially... Thanks, Carrie
