Nursing Jobs Outside the Box: Careers Without Hospital Hours

Should You Be a Private Duty Nurse, a Home Health Nurse, or a Hospice Nurse?

Newly licensed nurses and seasoned nurses alike can find opportunities for growth and a rewarding career trajectory outside the walls of the hospital or medical clinic.

No longer should you feel constrained by 12-hour shifts, strict scheduling, or under-resourced units where you’re asked to oversee the care of three patients at once.

A variety of nursing jobs are available in your community, where you’ll not only have the opportunity to create your own schedule, but you’ll also be able to focus on one-on-one patient care and enjoy ongoing professional development and training as you build your skills or grow into new roles.

“I can really focus on what their needs are and meet them with love and emotion as opposed to trying to take care of a large group of patients and just ‘get the job done,’” Lindsey, a Team Phoenix LPN, explains.

Does nursing outside the box sound like something you’d enjoy? Phoenix Home Care & Hospice is looking for compassionate, skilled nurses for private duty care, home health, and hospice. Keep reading to learn more about the nursing jobs in each of these service lines and discover which may be best for you.

Private Duty Nurse Jobs

Private duty nurses care for children and young adults with specialized healthcare needs. A form of pediatric nursing, private duty nursing helps to enrich the quality of lives of the patients Team Phoenix serves, while providing support to their families.

Your nursing skills are necessary as young patients transfer out of the hospital and back into their homes for recovery or as they live with life-limiting illness. Become an honorary member of your patients’ families while you provide medical services where your patients are most comfortable: the familiar environment of home.

As a private duty nurse, you’ll be tasked with providing injections or IV therapy; starting and monitoring G-tube feedings or TPN; administration of medications; overseeing IPPV treatments; conducting blood draws; and much more.

Do you want to become a private duty nurse? Phoenix Home Care & Hospice is looking for RNs and LPNs. Find a private duty nursing job near you.

Hospice Nursing Jobs

Hospice nurses help patients maintain their dignity as they face terminal illness, while providing support for patients’ families. At Phoenix Home Care & Hospice, hospice nurses provide care in patients’ homes or wherever they live, rather than in a centralized hospice house.

Because hospice care focuses on comfort and quality of life, it requires a very special kind of nurse to carry out its mission to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of our clients and their families. Hospice nurses support patients and their families through on-call care, respite care, managing medications, and providing bereavement guidance, among other important services.

Home Health Nursing Jobs

Home health care nurses enjoy a career working outside of the hospital, visiting patients where they live, and providing care after hospitalizations, new diagnoses, or injuries. When it comes to nursing jobs, RNs and LPNs in home health enjoy autonomy over their own work schedules while they manage their patients’ care, including coordinating with ancillary services like physical or occupational therapists, and the patient’s referring physician.

Home health nurses ensure the health and safety of their patients, helping them to avoid hospital readmissions, while providing day-to-day care that can include wound care, catheter and ostomy care, feeding tubes, medication management and administration, and skilled observation of a condition.
