Smile New Blogger -Camper in Tennessee

Good Day To All

I am a nurse who cares too much to compromise. Like many nurses I travel for survival. It's a sweet life, from sea to shining sea, I have met so many wonderful people. I have worked with some really great medical professionals. I have also encountered the "dark side". I have stood against the darkness and been escorted to the door by the big wigs for doing so(I spoke to a supervisor about my concerns regarding unsafe nurse/patient ratio). That was my last hospital assignment; I told God he will have to talk to me out loud, like He did with Moses, if He wants me to go back into a hospital to work.

I have been working home health for about five years. I am ready for a change. I am in search of information about working private duty nursing. Does anyone have information about this? I live between Clarksville & Paris Tennessee. I am sure that somewhere, near my home, there is a sweet elderly person, willing & able to pay decent wages, who needs a nurse to make life better. I just don't know how to go about getting hooked up where the need is.

Does anyone out there have information?

It is so sweet to have this forum to communicate with other nurses. Together, we are stronger! I do appreciate this website!

Thanks,

Hello and welcome to Nursing voices. Perhaps your state's Department of Senior and Disabled Services would be a good place to start your search for an in-home care position. In the next town over from me a dear little family with a ventilator-dependent toddler utilizes the skill of an RN at night. The RN is paid through state funding. Another option might be to work within a school district caring 1:1 for a medically fragile school-aged child. Hospice might be an option for you. In addition to the more usual homebased hospices who may offer 1:1 nursing for their clients there are some stand-alone hospice houses throughout the country.

Please let us know how things work out for you.

Again, welcome!

Joy

Default Thank You!

Thank you for the welcome & tips, Joy & Geena. I have a little time before this contract is up. One thing I know from past experience, God has a plan. He is faithful to lead me.

I just received a phone call from "Care & Comfort Nursing". I sent my "very impressive" application & cover letter a few days ago. An interview is coming up. I am TOOOOO happy right now!
I will keep you posted about how it goes. This is my dream job! Please say a pray for me! I will have to keep my skin on to carry out the interview with Dr. Heaton.

Thank you both for your encouragement!

Blessings,

Eva Linda
