Is it hard to get a home health job as a new grad?

August 5th, 2022

Home Health requires that you use a lot of clinical judgment and you are working independently. This requires a solid med surg background. Not saying you cannot get a job as a new grad, but you would benefit from a year of 2 to get good assessment skills, iv skills, etc.
Good luck!

Most long term care facilities require at minimum 1 year of experience. Very few have new grad orientation program.

It all depends where you live as some agencies now have a new graduate program in the home health field, I know at least one of my employers does it is fairly new to them I live in TX but this one has offices in quite a few states.
