Connect with our Registry of Qualified Private Duty RNs & LPNs for In Home Health Care
Skilled nursing care is the most advanced level of private care provided by RNs and LPNs. A skilled nurse is a licensed professional whose goal is to improve a person’s health or maintain it— as well as prevent other medical conditions from developing.
RNs and LPNs can focus all their attention on their Client’s needs at home, helping ensure an excellent standard of care. They have the ability to facilitate customized care based on the Client’s preferences and requirements in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Private Duty Home Health Care RNs vs. LPNs
Both RNs and LPNs perform a wide range of patient care duties, however, the practices and professional duties that an RN and LPN are legally allowed to practice are different. In all situations, RNs have more responsibilities compared to LPNs.
LPNs work in teams under the management of RNs and physicians to perform basic nursing care, such as taking vital signs, preparing meals, and helping patients bathe.
RNs administer medication and hold the knowledge to assess patients via the nursing process and create nursing care plans— however, RNs cannot diagnose patients like doctors.
Skilled Nurses can perform a wide variety of tasks in accordance with their scope of practice. This may include, but isn’t limited to:
Geriatric Care Planning
Surgical After Care
Alzheimer’s & Other related Dementia Care
Cardiac & Pulmonary Management
IV Therapy and PICC Line Care
Ostomy & Wound Care
Medication Reconciliation, Education, & Management
Mobility, Ambulation, & Transfer Assistance
Ventilation & Tracheostomy Care
Collecting & Charting Vital Signs
Patient & Family Education

Is there a difference between "home care" and "home health care"?
The term “home care” refers to any type of care (medical or non-medical) that is provided for the client in their home. While home care can be used to describe both medical and non-medical care, typically “home care” should be seen as non-medical care such as companionship/homemaking services and personal care services, while “home healthcare” refers specifically to skilled nursing care and other care such as speech, physical or occupational therapy.
