Many patients who require long-term care prefer to receive it in the privacy of their homes. This gives them the ability to maintain independence over their lifestyle and stay close to family and friends. Home health care nurses travel to patients’ homes and provide them with the medical care they need.
Because home health care nurses spend so much time with their patients, they often develop close relationships with them and can be a source of companionship, providing both emotional and medical support. In spite of this, home health care nurses must still be on the lookout for signs of depression, as homebound patients can be prone to feelings of isolation.
Most home health care nursing jobs work with elderly patients, although, in some instances, nurses may visit the homes of children with developmental problems. A big part of home health care nursing is educating the patient’s family or caregivers on how to care for the patient between visits.
To qualify for home health care nursing jobs, candidates need to be an RN and should take the Home Health Care Nurse certification exam. Upon passing, candidates can begin working as a certified home health care nurse. Visit ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs today to find home health care nurse positions in your area.
