You might be asking yourself, “This sounds like a great opportunity, but what makes a concierge nurse different than an in-home health nurse?” Keep reading!
The Professional RN Network highlights a few of the differences between a concierge and an in-home health nurse, these include:
• In most cases, a concierge nurse is an independently practicing RN; meaning they do not have to be employed through an agency, hospital, or physician.
• Unlike home healthcare agency nurses, a concierge nurse will not bill a patient’s insurance company or government health plan.
– Along these same lines, as long as the requested service is within the scope of nursing practice, a concierge nurse can provide any service that a patient may need.
