Mother Jones, I know how you feel. When my daughter opens up her own practice she's going to use EMR's (electronic medical records) which interface with hospitals, pharmacies, etc...and she wants me to learn how to do it!

Heck, I can barely turn on my television set with all the remotes to the 7:1 surround sound, DVD player, CD player....it's all to high tech!

Yes, I've had to call my younger daughter on her cell to find out how to turn the TV on. Talk about feeling like an electronic moron.

I consider myself to be fairly electronically savvy and there are times that I still have to call my husband to figure out how to switch to the DVD player.

I realise that this is not exactly home nursing but have you considered something like community nursing. You could do this part time, and it is away from hospitals but is still nursing. It would involve either going to other people's homes to do dressing changes, or give meds. You would also work in a GP clinic.

Just some thoughts.

I'm right there with you, My Own Woman. It took me all day to figure out how to reset the clock on our video tape player the last time the power went out.

I know a woman who is an LPN and has 4 children, one of them adopted, and takes in foster children with health care needs. In her state (Texas I think) she gets the status of being a medical needs home for foster children. She does extrordinary work with them. On top of that, I believe she does work with nursing software, either selling it or being a contact if people have problems with certain programs.

Default Work at Home RNs

Hi
I have been a nurse for 22 years and still work clinically but find it too physically demanding. I want to make raising my three kids a priority and still contribute to our household income. I am tired of working weekends and holidays.

Recently I partnered up with a 23 year old well-credentialed health and wellness company. We have other nurses on our team and I really enjoy helping them earn an income from home. There are options out there!

Good luck

Karen
