Why More Skilled Nurses Are Choosing Home Health Jobs

More skilled nurses are choosing home health jobs than ever, and for good reason. Home health care is an incredibly rewarding, engaging job, and many skilled nurses find it to be the right fit for their lives. At Phoenix Home Care in Overland Park, KS, our nurses take pride in their ability to make our patients feel comfortable and at ease. Learn why so many skilled nurses choose Phoenix Home Care below.

Home Health Nurses Have Incredible Job Outlooks

As the American population continues to age, the need for home health workers grows each day. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment of home health aides and personal care aides to grow 41 percent by 2026. It is the fastest-growing occupation in the US. 

The reality is, the Baby Boomer generation is aging, and they need skilled professionals to provide them with home care. Most people prefer to receive their care from the comfort of their own home. Whether that be general help from a caregiver or medical procedures from a home health skilled nurse, home health care is a crucial aspect of aging happily.


One of the big perks of working as a home nurse is the independence and autonomy that comes with your position. You don’t have someone constantly looking over your shoulder. Instead, you are trusted to work with your patients how you feel is best. This may seem intimidating at first, but if you choose the right company it can be empowering. At Phoenix Home Care in Overland Park, we ensure our new nurses have all of the training and support they could need, and then we trust them to work every day the best way they can.

Patient Interaction

There is something uniquely rewarding about home health care, and many nurses find the work truly fulfilling. You really get to know your patients and look forward to time spent with them. You’ll hear their stories and learn about their history, family, careers, and so much more. Best of all, your patients appreciate the care you provide them. You are giving them a chance at a new beginning, and most will show you their appreciation in their own way.
