With nearly 40 years’ experience of treating patients in their homes, the Visiting Nurse Association of Florida knows firsthand that the best place to heal is in the comfort and privacy of one’s own home. In-home skilled nursing is when a nurse (RN or LPN) visits a patient’s home to provide direct care. Skilled nursing care involves managing, observing, and evaluating a patient’s needs and medical status as well as teaching the patient and his or her family members how to continue making healthy progress.
