    Home Health a good option for single mom?

    Yes. It will require time management skills but it is doable. You will need a back up plan for those days it doesn't work. I would suggest being honest with your employer about your availability.

    New Agency, need advice!

    I work hourly so I'm paid for all hours the same including time I spend doing paperwork. Travel is from your house to the patient then subtract the miles from your house to the office. It sounds counter intuitive but if your first patient is a mile f...

    No training on OASIS - new to home health

    All of that sounds very unprofessional. I would not be comfortable putting my license on the line. My company pays for everything: mileage, mi-fi, cell phone, laptop, and .55 per mile.

    how to locate reputable agencies as a new LPN?

    Maybe this is true in certain areas. Thankfully it isn't true in Utah. Also there isn't a mandated one year rule here either.

    how to locate reputable agencies as a new LPN?

    I disagree with awheat. When a home health company hires a newly licensed nurse they accept the responsibility to train them, the same way any facility or hospital does. What you want to do is ask about the training. How long will they let you do rid...

    Praying in the work place

    As a Buddhist I do not believe in hope the way you define it here. Hope means I am looking to the future for my happiness instead of being present in this moment (and this one...and this one...) therefore holding hope out to me is meaningless to me a...
