Home health nurses provide care in the patients place of residence and have a variety of responsibilities, including administering medications, wound care, educating patients on disease treatment and prevention, and patient assessments. They may also provide case management services. Home care nursing often draws many acute-care nurses who like to have control over their own practice.
