Home Healthcare Nurse

How to become a Home Healthcare Nurse

Sometimes also called nurse liaison account managers or home health nurses, one must first become a nurse before specializing in home healthcare nursing.

There are two general types of professional nursing designations: licensed vocational nurse (LVN)/ Licensed practical nurses (LPN) and registered nurse (RN).

LPN/LVNs and need a high school diploma, to attend an approved and accredited practical nursing program, and to pass an exam administered by the state in which they wish to practice. Most practical nursing programs are at junior colleges and technical schools, but there are programs available through colleges, universities, hospitals and even some high schools; most programs last about one year. The core curriculum of the program covers what one would expect from a medical program: physiology and anatomy, various specific areas of medicine (psychiatric, obstetric, pediatric, surgical), pharmacology, nutrition, and training in various treatments and procedures. Programs most often combine hands-on learning along with in-class learning. The LPN exam is a computer-based test administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. programs and exams vary from state to state.

RNs (typically what people think about when they think about nurses) must go through a full degree program (bachelors of science or sometimes associates) offered through many of the same educational facilities mentioned above. There are a number of ways this formal post-high school training can be taken, sometimes with a work-study type of arrangement and often times there are also accelerated programs that offer RNs the ability to go from an associates to a bachelors or even masters degree in nursing. This program flexibility also works for those who already have bachelors degrees and choose nursing as a career later. It is strongly recommended to have a full 4-year degree in nursing vs. an associates degree. RNs study the above course content plus more hard science, like microbiology and chemistry. Licensure as an RN involves a national exam. There are some states who are in one network (enabled by the Nurse Licensure Compact Agreement) that recognize any of the other states' nursing licenses.

States tend to require license renewals, which usually mean continuing education. RNs can advance in their certifications for advanced specialties, including the areas of clinical, anesthetic, midwife or nurse practitioner nursing.

What does a Home Healthcare Nurse do?

Home healthcare nurses provide a vital patient to medical care giver link by visiting patients in their homes. This sometimes done on a one-time basis (to check up on patients after surgery or other involved medical treatment or after a child birth) or as a part of on-going general health care (as in the case of home-bound folks, elderly patients or patients who are in an area where there are no major clinics and hospitals to go to....
