I’m currently doing a contract in a COVID unit. I float PCU, ICU.
After this contract I want to try something else. My big options are home health, wound care, or infusion.
I’ve been a nurse for 13 years, I’ve done medsurg, LTAC, ICU, and home health as an LVN/LPN.
I only want to work a couple of days a week, and I wanna be able to travel for a few months in the Summer.
I was thinking of doing some online training for Oasis paperwork and even getting oasis “certified.”
I know home health can consume your life, and that’s not what I’m looking for. I figured I could do part time or PRN.
Infusion nursing, especially at home seems like it would be a good fit for my needs, but I have no experience. I mean, I can put in PIVs and hang blood, etc. but I don’t know anything about IVIG or rheumatology or chemo.
I looked at the training/certification for infusion, but it needs 1600 hrs experience with infusion therapy, which I don’t have.
Anyone have any ideas or advice or notice something I’m missing?
