A modern day Home Care RN uses the latest technology and proficient clinical skills to provide care to patients who require care and monitoring outside of the acute care setting. Nursing care is provided to all age groups, in the comfort of their home, through a multidisciplinary approach working closely with physicians, therapy team members, social work and home health aides.

The goal of home care nursing is to empower patients and families to participate in the healing process, allowing patients to remain in their own home for the duration of care. This position is highly rewarding and is an essential part of the care continuum initiative supported by Beaumont Health.
