Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Mississippi – May 13, 2019
I have worked for this company for 6 years. I worked the first 2 years in the float pool at the main hospital. This was 12 hour shifts. I transferred to home health and have been working in home health for this company for the past 4 years. The schedule is flexible. As far as if I or my children have a doctor's appointment, I can go to the appointment without using my PTO time. I will just have to work longer later that day or a different day to make up my time. I am on salary. I worked a lot working in the float pool, as this gave me experience in all different areas. I have worked med surg, renal, cardiac, oncology, ortho, neuro, step down, etc. This gave me a strong background in nursing, and has helped me a lot in home health. In home health, you are at a patient's home by yourself and you really have to be able to critically think, concerning the needs of the patient. Home health is like a case management job, because you take care of all of the patient's needs. You also see this patient for a longer period of time than you do in the hospital typically.
