When you partner with Sunbelt as a home health registered nurse or nurse practitioner, you'll be able to grow your career in new and exciting ways!
Home Health registered nurses (RN) and nurse practitioners (NP) are specialties who provide one-on-one care for patients in the comfort of their homes. There are several instances where nurses would turn to in-home care for their patients. It is common for the elderly, terminally ill, pregnant women and people recovering from injuries/accidents to get in-home care.
Turning to home health provides a comfortable environment for patients and flexible schedule options for nurses.
Some of the responsibilities of home health nurses can include:
Home health nurses must have the same educational background as registered nurses and nurse practitioners. That includes an associate's or bachelor’s degree from an accredited nursing program, a nursing license from passing the NCLEX-RN exam, state licensure and experience. Nurse practitioners will need a graduate degree and will have to become certified by taking a national certification exam through any of five national certification boards, including the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), the National Certification Corporation (NCC), or the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)
RN and NP jobs continue to see a rise in demand across industries. The aging population is increasing the need for assistance, making a home health RN or NP position an ideal fit to support patients' needs in the comfort of their homes.
Home health is becoming an increasingly popular preference for patients. While demand varies from state to state, Sunbelt can help to find the perfect fit for job availability across the country through every stage of your career.
