Growing Opportunities for Nurses in Home Health Care

Growing Opportunities for Nurses in Home Health Care

Kathy Quan | NursingLink

Home health care is one of the fastest growing areas in health care today. For nurses, providing care for patients in their own homes is the place to be in the next decade. This includes private duty shift work in homes, as well as intermittent home health and hospice care.

Convenient for the Patient

Medical care in your own home! Who could ask for more?

The cost of health care has spun way out of control and home health care is one way to reduce such costs. In his own home, a patient is not only more comfortable, but is able to assume more responsibility for his outcomes and recover quickly. Patients are safer and more comfortable in their own bed, basically immune to their own germs and environment. They are less likely to acquire secondary infections, such as MRSA, a common threat in hospital environments.

Appealing for Nurses

The great thing about home health care is that it incorporates so many fields and specialties. There’s never a dull moment!

Sometimes patients are too sick to care for themselves in their own home and require private duty shift care, or intermittent visits from nurses or therapists (or some combination of both). They need to be taught about new medications, dietary restrictions, and home safety tips. Patients may have wounds, unhealed incisions, or immobilization devices such as splints or casts. They may have IV antibiotics or have ongoing chemotherapy treatments. Some may have tubes such as G-tubes, pleural drainage, wound or incision drains and dressings, Foley catheters, or are dependent on machines such as suction or ventilators. All of this requires specialized care that only a trained professional can provide.

Hospice Nurses Need a BSN

Home Health Care Today

In the 80’s and 90’s, home health care got a bad reputation as being a place to make lots of money, seeing many patients each day who required easy patient care with few challenges. It was thought that nurses weren’t “real nurses” because the patient care was very simplistic and low tech. Today, however, home health care is still a lucrative career, but the on-the-job skills are just as demanding as any other nursing job.

    I was looking up some information about a drug rehab in Texas and then I remembered reading your article here. I wanted to come back before I totally forgot about it. What I wanted to say is that home nursing is a growing field and also a field where the demand is higher than what the job market has to offer. Becoming a nurse can prove to be quite profitable.

    Home health care is something that needs to be developed more.I used to work in a Addiction rehab center and I must say that people who need help they need it as much it can be.There should be more and more people who should become nurses because it is also payed well.

    I found some anabolic steroids for sale a year ago and I must say that I was very impressed about them.The only problem was that I had an accident which involved home health care and I must admit that the nurse who took care of me was great and people should know that there are many nurses who do their job very well.

    I was looking for a place where to buy Kratom from and I found your article here. Just wanted to say that recently I took a look at job openings in the UK area. There are so many offers for home nurses. So... if you have a tough time finding a job, go to nurse school because you will surely have a job afterwards.

    I was reading something about the Amsco Table when I found your article here. In the UK region there is a high demand for home nursing jobs. They have started to recruit people from all over Europe to work in UK. It's a little hard at first, but with time you adapt to the new environment.
