I am a LVN. I work for a Hospice and Palliative care office out of Downey but live in the Inland Empire. They had patients in my area so I took the chance and left my job as a charge nurse at a snf. Its been over two years now and I do not regret it one bit. I made $19.70 starting off at the snf. I make $35 a hourly visit plus .50 a mil for gas. I usually have between 14 to 20 patients I see twice a week. I make around $1200 to $1600 a week with mileage. I make my own hours and Have no one over my shoulder all day. I'm not rushed to administer medications and I get to know each patient out of the comfort of their homes. I love my job. I do wish I had more chances to use more of my skills as I would in a snf or hospital, but will have to wait til my baby is a little older. Right now my hours work great for me. So if you move to southern cali look into home health or hospice and palliative. Pay is great and you really make a difference. Hope this helps.
