Rewarding job, fairly flexible
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – MN – November 3, 2015
A typical work day varies depending on the client you are with. You can have any range of clients from non-complex to complex, child to adult, those with medical, physical, mental needs. One downside to home care is that you do not get to work with others, most of the time. This is okay if you like being on your own, but if you prefer to be social, it can get a bit lonely. The management at AHC are all very nice. Communication could use some work, but that seems to be true in any work environment. The hardest thing about home care is not having a doctor or fellow nurse at hand when you need help or have a concern about the client. The most enjoyable part is being able to take care of your clients in their setting, in their home.
Working with clients in their own environment, get to know your clients better
