Typical day was get up early and give baths, clean, vital signs, and visit with them. The difference in people and how they live and react not being the person they once were. Management was good. Did not get to meet many co-workers. Hardest part of job was when the company changed and did not use CNS"s anymore. Not seeing my customers. Most enjoyable – more... the patients. – less
Field Nurse (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – August 29, 2013
Pros: meeting new people everyday and bettering there lives by help them recover.
Cons: high travel at times to patient's location's.
Home care nursing is a very good way to better your own independent working skills and a chance to prove yourself in a one on one setting in the patient's own home. Also having a group of other nurse's out in the field that you can consult with if needed, helping improve patient's health and wellbeing on a daily basis through education and patient care. – more... Being able to grow and learn new skills to better yourself as a person and as a nurse, having both doctors and management staff there if needed to administer the best care possible to your patient. – less
working with clients. making them feel better from care gave.

Pros: working with people in home . free lunches.
Cons: short breaks . scheldule varies
Managment needs to be better. Productive job. Company will give new employees more hours than they will to someone whos been there for a much longer time employed. Would hire new employees and current employees would lose hours promised.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Portsmouth, OH – January 16, 2013
Have three to four clients homes I would have to drive to and visit. Learned to be more compassionate. Management worked around my school schedule. Hardest part would be the bad weather and gettting to a clients home during the times. Most enjoyable part would be meeting new people and the feeling of being wanted and helpful.
