Home Health Nursing: Standards, Assessment, Reimbursement

Expiration Date: November 30, 2019

Home health care is the fastest growing industry in the United States based on the projection period of 2014-2024. The anticipated employment growth for the period is more than 760,000 jobs, reaching a total of over 2 million. While some of these jobs are for home health aides and personal care aides, a wide variety of healthcare professionals will be needed, particularly registered nurses.

This course provides the nurse with an understanding of the structure of home health agencies, the federal regulations and reimbursement system, and standards of care and professional practice. The home care nurse cannot “just” provide exceptional clinical care in terms of assessment and treatments but must also provide this care in the context of the larger healthcare and home care system. The course is designed for both new and experienced home health nurses as well as those nurses who may be interested in pursuing a career in home health or who may work closely with home health agencies.

Expiration Date: November 30, 2020

Patients with a medical condition may display psychiatric symptoms or responses, and sometimes longer lasting mental health problems. All nurses practicing in a general healthcare setting must be prepared to assist patients with maintaining optimal mental health. This course is focused on those psychiatric and mental health issues related to a chronic medical condition that nurses working in a general or non-psychiatric nursing specialty area may encounter.

The course specifically details common mental health issues observed in patients with sleep-wake disorders, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes, and nursing care and interventions for patients with these conditions to help prevent chronic mental illness. The course also addresses mental health issues seen among patients who have suffered a stroke, lost a body part, or have experienced sensory loss.

This course is designed to enhance the skills required by those nurses without specific mental health training caring for patients with psychiatric and mental health issues in general practice settings. By taking this course, psychiatric nurses may also receive new insight into the general medical patient with a related mental health issue or problem.
