Home Health Nurse Reviews

What is it like working as a Home Health Nurse?

Home Health Nurse in Bowling Green:
"It's not a hospital."
Pros: I can set my own hours but I work around patients daily lives so if they are discharged at night I have to go admit them to our services.
Cons: Smelly houses, fleas, bed bugs... A lot of houses are gross and smell really bad. You can smell the house when you get to the door.
