Home Health Nursing
Everything You Need to Know About Home Health Nursing
Home health nurses are specially trained to provide care in the patient’s home. These nurses primarily work with the elderly, but may also work with children who have developmental or mobility issues. Home health nurses may work with a patient for a long period of time–especially during end-of-life care–or may work with a patient on a temporary basis to assist in rehabilitation after an injury or illness. They often work closely with just a single patient, unlike other types of nurses who may see several patients each day. Home health nursing often attracts nurses who like to have control over their own practice. These nurses can also be LPNs licensed to work under the supervision of registered nurses.
