What Makes a Good Home Health Nurse?

Because they are working largely independently, home health nurses must be self-directed, able to manage time efficiently, and able to think critically. In addition to strong clinical skills, they should have excellent communication skills and demonstrate respect for cultural and lifestyle differences to effectively interact with families in their homes. 

Home care can also be physically demanding, requiring lifting, turning, or moving patients who need assistance.

What Qualifications Do Home Health Nurses Need?

Munson Healthcare’s Home Health nurses will have graduated from a state-approved nursing education program and be registered or planning to take the state board licensing exam. Experience in the clinical area being applied to is desirable but not required. All nurses must maintain Basic Life Support certifications as well as specialty life support certifications applicable to the area of specialty. For specific details, view the requirements on our job postings.
