HOME CARE NURSING
Home care nurses provide care to patients at home. It is the skill, expertise and ability of the home care nurse to use and manage advancing technology that allows home care to happen. Chemotherapy, phototherapy for infants, ventilator care, infusion therapy, and hospice are just some of the highly complex health care services that can be delivered at home.
The advanced care needs of many patients demand nurses with advanced skills. Many home care nurses have worked in hospital intensive care units, operating rooms, and emergency units before coming to home care. They are coming to home care because it offers them the opportunity to use their advanced nursing skills and knowledge to provide one on one care to patients of all ages.
