The best in home health nursing


Licensed Practical Nurses who choose to focus on home healthcare are a special group of people that can provide direct patient care while also educating caregivers and actively participating on the patient’s care team. This is a level of nursing that must be able to accurately assess needs, provide appropriate interventions, and revise care as needed under the supervision of a registered nurse. If you are an LPN looking to work in home health, we have a supportive place where your skills are appreciated and developed.

Do you work well independently? Are you productive with your time? Can you adapt to the needs that each patient presents even as they vary from day to day? Are you looking for a place where your faith doesn’t take a back seat – a place where nurses consciously carry out Christ’s ministry whether in the physician’s office, hospital or patient home? We have a special role waiting for you. 

  • Implement nursing plan of care at the direction of the registered nurse.
  • Provide home-based patient care based on physician orders and the established nursing plan of care.

  • Collaborate with Home Health RN and multidisciplinary treatment team to individualize each patient’s treatment needs in order to achieve defined goals for improved patient outcomes.
  • Conduct patient psychosocial assessments to explore the physical, psychological and social aspects of the patient and their conditions, obtain history, and elicit an accurate description of psychosocial needs in order to inform care team.
  • Contribute to developing discharge plans, identifying the post-discharge needs of the patient and target appropriate resources for follow-up care, in collaboration with the patient, family and care team.
  • Document patient care information and ensure timely and accurate completion of patient care records in accordance with policies and procedures.
  • Participate in the education of patients and their caregivers about extended care facilities, home health agencies, and other resources as appropriate to transition patients along the continuum of care.
  • Prior Acute care or Long Term Care experience. 
  • Prior experience in Home Health.
  • Customer service skills.
  • Educate patients and/or families as to the nature of disease and to provide instruction on proper care and treatment.
  • Accept personal accountability for deliverables and actions.
  • Critical thinking skills.
  • Develop effective relationships with patients, hospital departments, and other external parties.
  • Develop own ways of working effectively and efficiently.
  • Effectively communicate verbally and in writing.
