Travel Home Health Nurse Jobs

Home health nursing is a nursing specialty that’s open to RNs, LPNs, or LVNs, depending on the position. Home health nurses visit patients in their homes to provide one-on-one medical care. Home health patients may be elderly, physically disabled, mentally handicapped, suffering from a chronic disease, terminally ill, or recovering from an injury or accident. Home health nurses practice in a non-traditional work environment and often care for the same patients long-term, which may appeal to those looking for a change of pace.
